I am using Windows 7 laptop. I connect to the internet through an Ethernet cable to a Cisco cable modem. I didn't take the wireless router as I am the only user of internet in my home. Sometimes, I want to access the internet through my smartphone by connecting to the same modem but I don't know how to enable hotspot in windows 7. Is it possible to connect my smartphone to my laptop through wireless? How to setup WiFi hotspot in windows 7 laptop?
