A Question about MIFI

Post by Deej on Tue Apr 02, 2013 6:06 pm

This is for all you Nerds out there -

I have a smart phone (an android) and I've read that I can use that phone as a MIFI hot spot for my computers when traveling? So which program is best, and safe and how exactly would this work???

NOWWWWWWWWW - talk to me like you would a five year old, so I can understand you. Smile Smile Smile

Here is a video where is explained step by step how to enable tethering function of your phone. When you do all of that, all you have to do is to go on your laptop open your Wi Fi network and scan (search) for devices. Most probably your device will already be visible. Click on it (twice) it will open a separate window where it will ask for password (use the password which you set up when configuring your tethering connection on your android) and that should work.

You can connect your laptop, tablet or kindle this way.



Here is in written:

To set up tethering (Internet sharing) on your Galaxy S3 GT-i9300, follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Go To Galaxy S3 “Settings” ,then “More settings”.

Step 2: Now your are on the Wireless and Networks Menu. So,chose the “Tethering and portable hotspot”

Step 3: Enable “Portable Wi-Fi hotspot function”.

Step 4:Setup your network name- network SSID ( any) and network key to only you or authorized person for access- Password (any). The security on your Wi-Fi is provided by providing the password using the WPA2 PSK security.

Step 5:Click save.

Step 6: Open your PC or laptop Wi-Fi, then search your Galaxy s3 network SSID which you have setup, then enter the password. Now your PC or laptop can connect to internet.

If something is not clear, please ask. I can explain again step by step. Your computer/laptop has Wifi settings configured already, right?
