Turning your Wi-Fi card into a Virtual Wireless Router

Share Your any Internet Connection very easily and quick!!!!wifi logo

All thanks to Manash for giving me this liberty to rampage his blog.

Okay, so my last month was quite frustrating…I could not find a way to share my broadband connection with my new Android Phone-Motorola MB511(AT&T),  for my initial MotoBlur account setup process and staidly there was no freaking way to bypass it :((. If only I had a wireless router :(( !!!. Nevertheless a few researches on Google revealed the fact that we can actually use a Wi-Fi card as a virtual wireless router under Windows 7!! :)).  Literally, there are many softwares available on the net that makes this simple task even simpler but then we all love the command prompt(the geek’s way).. don’t we ???.

Here’s how we do it using the command prompt….

  1. *Turn on your Wi-Fi
  2. *Start your command prompt as Administrator and punch the commands below
  3. =>netsh wlan set hostednetwork ssid=TechDiarywifi key=1234567890
    *where “TechDiarywifi” is the name of the wi-fi Access Point and “1234567890” is the passkey of the wifi AP.
  4. *Now open Control Panel>Network and Internet> Network Connections and you will find a new Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter (Wireless Network Connection”X”) where “X” is a number that will depend on the number of network connections that you have. In my case it is “2” & hence Wireless Network Connection 2.
  5. *For sharing your broadband connection over this hosted network click on your Broadband LAN Connection properties > Click on “Sharing” tab at the top. Under Internet Connection sharing, check the option “Allow other users to connect through this computer’s internet connection”.
  6. *Now we can start our hosted network. On command prompt type
  7. =>netsh wlan start hostednetwork
  8. **Sharing your internet connection is now easy. Just turn on the Wi-Fi  on your android phone/tablet/lappy/netbook (generally the client device from where you want to connect to the “TechDiarywifi” network that you have created). Give it a few minutes before it detects your Wi-Fi network and then enter your password to login. 
  9. *To stop the hosted network at any point type in=>netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
  10. Using this process you can share any internet connection over Wi-Fi !!( even you’r USB dongle’s internet connection via your Laptop Wi-Fi !!).

Make almost any ISO USB bootable in a minutes…

USB Flash Drive SuperTalent Pico-C 8 GB. Stain...

Now a days all the computers have a native support for USB booting i.e. you can install or run Operating system from a USB drive.

There are many ways to do so, but what my personal choice is UNetbootin, it’s a very powerfull utility through which you can convert any ISO files or image files to make it boot or start from the USB drive instantly without burning to a physical media(saving time and cost).The best part is it support almost all the latest Linux Ditribution as well as rescue CD’s…

What you will need :
Download the latest version from here .

STEPS:

1. Run UNetbootin as Administrator or if you are on windows XP just start it like any other application.

2.Now, select the second option Diskimage and choose ISO from the dropdown list and select the browse(…) button just next to it and select your ISO that you want to create.


 

3.Now select the type USB and then select your drive letter carefully for the USB drive and Click OK.

Now, grab some fresh air and your drive is ready!!!!!!!!!
