Hi awaisdell,

This work for Win 7 although I haven't tested it (it's still a nice easy video to watch).

You may need to go back to the wireless router and use as a "Wide Area Network".
Set up your security protocols and then have your iphone connect wirelessly to your wan using your set up configuration and password.
