Networking: Virtual Access Point from Your PC

If you are within range of a WLAN, you can easily share your Internet connection with a smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device. But how can friends and family access the Internet if you don’t want to have to permanently give them your password, or if you don’t have a WLAN in the first place. The answer is to create your own virtual Wi-Fi network that shares your PC’s Internet connection with other people. It even works if you do not have a cabled connection and are instead connecting via a mobile data adapter.

In this article, we’ll show you how to set up Virtual Wi-Fi on your PC and share Internet access.
