If you go to Start > Accessories you will see an application called Internet Sharing. Up until today I hadn’t paid much attention to it as it seems that everywhere I go today there is an internet connection in one form or another. Well Murphy’s Law went into effect today. I am actually away from the office today at a location where there isn’t a shred of an internet connection when I get a text from Brandon saying the site is down.
“Oh No!” I said, “How will the Shadow fans unite? I must do something!”
I fired up my laptop only to discover no wifi anywhere. What was I to do? A Shadowy image floated in my mind, it said “…internet sharing…oooooo…”
Of course! I hadn’t used Internet Sharing yet and I hoped for a simple setup. I pulled out my USB cable and connected the Shadow to the laptop. Activesync connected, and I activated Internet Sharing. After a minute Windows XP fully recognized everything. I opened Internet Explorer and voila! The connection worked!
It was 100% plug and play. The only thing I had to do was enable it from the Shadow. I was able to download some files and compare changes to troubleshoot the problem. 5 minutes after I knew the site was down, it was back up. The mobile internet isn’t the fastest available but it’s enough to get the task done. Thank you Shadow!
We’d love to know if anyone else has attempted to use the Internet Sharing, and if so what is your experience?
