    Hello, I want to know if there is a way to connect a computer to a wifi network via my Android's WI-FI?
    As in, turning my Android into a WI-FI Router?
    If anyone has any ideas, Pleas let me know.
    Thanks:)

    It depends on your phone's Android version and carrier. "Tethering" can connect your computer via a USB cable or Bluetooth. There's also "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot" which makes your phone a Wi-Fi router that 8 computers/devices can connect to.
    Note that your mobile data connection is being used.

    You may try this
    Setting > More setting > Tethering and portable hotspot > Portable Wifi hotspot ( Turn on this )
    Works on my JB 4.1.2 Gt - I9300 :D

    Go to PDA.net and you can turn your android phone into a tethered hot spot if you have internet on your smart phone. They also have a wireless option called foxfi
