    Can this sharing be done in Windows 10


    I have a DELL XPS15 that I just purchased about a month ago. It came with Windows 10, can't say as how I am overly impressed so far but it is getting better (I think). I am currently running a wired connection through Dells docking station. What I want to do is share the wired connection via the wireless card on my laptop. I have my phone, and IPAD that I want to share the connection with.

    can it be done and if it can how?

    cheers

    Do tell more about the ISP/Internet Service Provider you are using, the type of connection [DSL, Broadband, Dial-Up, etc.], the Modem and the Router [if used].

    You would need to bridge the two connections into one. It is really more cost effective to just get a Access Point.

    Yes, it can be done. No need to buy any hardware. See this link: http://www.howtogeek.com/214080/how-...wi-fi-hotspot/

    I think the answer to this would be "yes" It is supposed to be "broadband" for which I pay for DSL speeds but actually get DIAL-UP ...

    I am a contractor in Iraq and the service here sucks most of the time .. wireless is a TP-Link TL-WR740n connected to a switch via cable that runs over the roof of our hooch.
