Windows 7 as a Wireless HotSpot

Ever wanted to share a wired network connection -- LAN or perhaps a DSL connection -- with your phone or tablet, but don't have a wireless router to stick in between? 

It turns out that this is actually really easy to do under Windows 7.  Most newer PCs/Laptops with built in WiFi addapters will have a compatable chipset, and I say newer with quite a bit of give.  It works fine on my 3 year old hp laptop.  You don't even need to install any third party software!

Multi Link Point to Point Protocol is a nifty protocol which allows for the bonding of multiple lines.  With a MLPPP enabled DSL account, two or more lines, DSL modems in bridged mode and a bonding router such as a Mikrotik routerboard, you can effectively quadruple the speed (minus a little overhead) of a DSL connection.

        - Hit the red plus sign
        - pick "PPPoE Client"
