In our day-to-day life, internet is unavoidable. We often come across several situations where we need to share a single internet connection available at the time for more than one system. Example, in offices, colleges, hostels, hotels etc. Wi-Fi routers or LAN connections are used for such purposes.
But it is not always possible to carry such hardware or installing them newly. Therefore a complexity arises in sharing the internet. One temporary solution is to setup an ad-hoc network. But the major drawbacks in it are, only one system can be connected, requires additional configuration of network whenever a new node is introduced into the network and also this created network is not detected by all devices like cell-phones, PDAs etc..
By using mhotspot in a laptop, it can be able to share the internet through Wi-Fi easily to any device and any number of devices. It creates an infrastructure mode network which unlike ad-hoc network and is exactly similar to the type of network created by a traditional Wi-Fi router.
