How to share Windows XP internet connect to wireless PCs?




I have a Windows XP Pro SP2 laptop with wireless card and a USB HSDPA modem
(ZTE MF628), which most of the time I use to connect to the internet whenever
I am working on a client site. I also have this Windows Mobile 6.1 phone (SE

My question is: is it possible to share my laptop's internet connection
(using the HSDPA modem) through WiFi with my WM 6.1 phone? I was trying to
bridge my wireless connection to the modem, but XP won't allow it.

I have also tried to share my modem connection with the ad-hoc wireless
network running, but my WM phone is still unable to access the internet.
However, I was able to ping my WM phone from my XP laptop, so connection was
already there.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I am not familiar with your phone per-se but many of the Internet phone do
not land themselves to work as total standard Ethernet devices.
Try to search for a specific support group that deals with this phone.
