    Use my laptop as a wifi AP?


    I use wired ethernet on my laptop, so the wireless goes unused. Thus, I'm wondering if it's possible to set up my laptop as an AP, so that devices like my smartphone can get a better signal when plugged in for charging.

    By default with the OS? Possible, this was written for Win 7, should /could work for 10, give it a shot:

    Well, if there's a free, well-known program that can do this, I wouldn't mind going that route either.
