I just got my new HTC G2 for T-Mobile. My house is very funky and I don't get much of a signal inside. I have an old laptop running Xp SP3. I would like to connect the laptop to my router via wire and then use the wireless built in to the laptop to provide wifi access for my phone. I don't have the funds for a WiFi router and everything in my house is hard wired anyway. I followed a how-to I found here
but no success.
I have enabled ICS on the wired connection on the laptop and created an ad-hoc wifi network. I try to connect to it on the laptop and it says I'm connected but it keeps turning WEP off and I cannot find the network from my phone.
Any suggestions? Any better guides out there I can follow? I've looked over google but haven't found anything better then the one I used.
