FWIW, you don't need anything other than Windows 8 (or Windows 7) to turn your laptop wireless access point.

 

Recommend using a wireless router instead though.

honestly........i recommend you go with the wireless as there are less safety issues.......but you will have to sacrifice your internet speed a little bit.....

Wired home networks are less expensive, faster, and more secure than wireless networks. Wireless trades both speed and some loss of security for greater flexibility.
