Hey guys, I am really sorry if this has been asked before.

Well, there are some apps which my phone needs and they can be downloaded directly to the phone only. Vodafone India is pretty expensive in data charges. So, the only option left with me is to use the internet I use on my laptop.

Sadly, the internet I use is not a wireless one, but its the cable internet (needs a wire). I don't know how do I use this internet service in my phone.

I tried Connectify, virtual router and even created a new ad-hoc connection with sharing on, but still, no results.

I guess I do some mistakes in the settings. Can anyone help me?

General Errors:
  • Connectify is not able to create a connection
  • Virtual Router connects to the phone, but there is no internet connection. Same with the new ad-hoc connection
I use Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit). Detailed specs can be found on my profile, if needed.

Thanks

Regards,
Abhishek Sharma
I think that part of the problem may be that you are only able to share a wireless connection using connectify. It looks to me like you only have a wired connection.

There may be a way to bridge the adaptors, both wired and wireless but I havn't tried that yet.

This set up procedure may you figure it out.

Hmm... The link seems to be down.

And even I feel the same way about Connectify. What about Virtual Router? It at least manages to create a connection, my phone even connects to it, but there is no internet access.
That link works for me hmmmm, I posted the link again in it's compact form.

As for the virtual router, it seems that it's only made for a few of the older Op systems.

Hmm. Pretty sad that the link is down just for me. That's what Down for everyone or just me? says.

Any other solution guys? I am pretty sure it can be done via a new ad-hoc connection.
