Long story, but bottom line is that I have a work Toshiba lappy that connect to our own LAN, and sometimes a Telecom 3G stick when on the road. I want to be able to use the lappy as a wi-fi hotspot to connect iphone and ipad to, mostly when at work on the LAN, but through the 3G network as well if possible.
Lappy is running Win XP SP3
A Google search indicates it may be possible, but I cannot find any instructions for SP3. All on-line tutorials for XP have different looking menus (possibly SP2?) and I cannot locate the 'ad-hoc' network setting they all refer to. I don't know enough to go digging through the menus.
I fear this may be blocked by our IS services, or even disabled in the OS, but if it's possible I would like to give it a crack.
Can anyone provide a step-by-step or link to how I could achieve this?
