If you’ve only got one wired Ethernet connection and a room full of internet-starved laptop users, you can quickly turn your laptop into a wireless hot spot without any extra software. CNET TV has a video tutorial that demonstrates how you can turn Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Mac OS X laptops into wireless broadcasting hot spots. CNET even shows how you can add security to the wireless signal to keep intruders out. The process is painless in Vista and OS X, but requires a few steps in XP. Anyone know how to accomplish the same task in Linux? Share in the comments.
