Connectify: Turn your PC into a Hotspot

Connectify works by turning your Windows laptop into a secure Wi-Fi hotspot 
which you can then use to connect your other Internet-enabled devices.

Of course I’m not an advocate for having students find loopholes and hook up to the web when they’re not supposed to, but I did find this to be a great tool for other reasons.  For example, if you’ve ever been in an area such as a hotel and needed a hot spot, Connectify would be beneficial for you.  I was thinking that this may be beneficial for those of you who have Internet on your desktop, but can not connect with your mobile devices.  Perhaps this is a solution for you.
