    Hey all,

    I'm sure many of you were in a situation that you didnt have access to a wireless network router but wanted to setup a wireless network with your Droid X and be able to use an existing internet connection that your laptop has.

    This is said only if the following circumstances exist:

    Internet Access on your computer with a wired connection
    Windows Vista Home Premium or greater should allow this to work

    Step 1. Go into your network and sharing center
    Set up a connection or network
    Choose Peer to Peer adhoc
    Setup the name and WEP pass
    Step 2. In the network and sharing center goto manage network connections
    Right click the Local Area Connection (not Wireless)
    Click Properties
    Click Sharing
    Check Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection.
    If you want to allow additional features click Settings and check those that apply (http is a must for passing internet to the phone)
    Click Ok on all
    Step 3. Right click the Wireless Network Connection
    Goto Properties
    Highlight TCP/IPv4
    Click Properties
    Check Use the following IP address
    Enter a new IP address that is not the same as your wired connection IP (Goto CMD prompt and type IPCONFIG /all to determine this
    subnet mask is default unless your wired connection uses something different
    Default gateway should be similar to the IP entered above but change the last digit to something else.
    The prefered DNS is set to your wired connection IP see IPCONFIG /all should be under IPv4 Address:
    Then after entering all that Ok out of it.
    Step 4. In Network and Sharing Center open Manage Wireless connectons
    You should see the adhoc you set up previosly in the 1st step.
    Right click it and Click connect
    Enter your wep pass
    But before you click connect get your phone
    On your phone goto your wifi settings
    If you dont see your adhoc in it try scanning or manually adding it
    Enter your wep
    And add it so that the phone is obtaining an IP address
    At this time connect on your computer to the adhoc
    If your computer fails at first see that your phone is connected
    If your phone is connected try again on your computer it should wok, it did for me... If either doesnt work double check your wep pass

    After everything connects you should have the wifi symbol and now be able to access the internet from both laptop and phone.

    Additionally you can connect other devices at the same time, my Ipod touch gen 4 and droid x works with my Old ass laptop via IPv4

    Good Luck hope this helps anyone.
