Use HTC Touch Pro As a Wi-fi Modem

I have a HTC Touch Pro Smart Phone. I had purchased it recently. Now I owned a laptop. I know to setup a HTC phone and use the internet via it. But is there a way by which I can use the mobile modem as a router and share a local network and internet connection. I had heard somewhere that it is possible by it. But what are the requirements for this. And also what are the features of this mobile phone. Other than what is mentioned what more service does it provides.

Yes you can use your HTC Touch phone as a wireless router to share internet connection from a hotspot or wi-fi areas. I am listing the entire step to setup a wifi connection. You have two options. First to connect to a secured network or unsecured which is a hotspot. Follow the below steps to share a wi-fi connection via HTC.
  1. First click on start > settings > connections > Wi-Fi.
  2. Then in the list of networks select your desired one.
  3. Then click on Next to connect to the internet.
  4. Then you can see a Authentication Shared screen. Leave it.
  5. Select a WEP for DATA Encryption.
  6. Then remove the tick from automatically provide network key and assign a key.
  7. Click on Next till you see finish.

It is true that you can use your HTC phone as router to access a WAP or WEP area. The wi-fi hardware in the phone enables you to connect to a network and the same you can use via your system by some configuration. The phone has a wi-fi enabled function which gives you a liberty to access internet near access points or hotspots. It is very easy to configure.
