Very useful Android feature can turn your Android smartphone into a Wireless hotspot that enables other WiFi devices like laptops or other smartphones to use your Android phone's Intenet connection.

1.
 

Tap the Menu button and choose Settings.

You can also go to Applications and then Settings.

 
 
2.
 

Tap Wireless and network.

Note: If you have an Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), or Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) then you need to tap More... instead.

 
 
3.
 

Tap Tethering and portable hotspot.

 
 
4.
 

Tap Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings.


 
 
5.
 

Tap OK.

You can choose the Do not show again option as well.

 
 
6.
 

Tap Configure portable Wi-Fi hotspot.

 
 
7.
 

Enter a name for your WiFi or a so called Network SSID.

Now we're going to make your WiFi connection secure, so not anyone can connect and use your Internet data.

Tap Open under Security.

 
 
8.
 

Choose WPA2 PSK.

 
 
9.
 

Enter the password for your WiFi connection.

You need to enter at least 8 characters for password.

People that will want to use your WiFi connection will have to know and enter this password first.

Tap Save.

 
 
10.
 

And tap Portable Wi-Fi hotspot to actually enable it.

You should see a WiFi icon in your notification area.

To disable the Portable Wi-Fi hotspot just uncheck the option.

 
 
11.
 

Your Android phone is now ready and waiting for devices to connect and use its Internet connection.

This is the Wi-Fi network I set as seen on a Windows 7 computer.

I have the Android 4.0.3 installed on my device, I don't see any Wireless and Network option in the settings?

Hey mick, it's slightly different on Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich). You need to tap the More... option when in Settings after that, it's pretty much the same deal.
