Icon6 Windows XP Laptop As a Wifi Access Point


Hi guys,

I have a Dell Latitude E6400. I am connected to internet via LAN and want to share the same connection out using Wifi. I am ok with assigning static IP addresses to the devices connecting to the laptop via Wifi, but am not able to figure out a proper method of doing it.

Any assistance?

Regards,
Karan Misra

the amount you save from avoiding buying a router will be drained in energy bills.
