You have an Android smartphone and 3G package to access the Internet from your mobile? You can easily share and enjoy your connection and your Internet access with all your other WiFi devices without having to purchase packages for each of them. The Wireless Access Point functionality found on Android phones makes it possible to share the 3G connection of your phone with other devices that have Wi-Fi. This can be a laptop, a tablet or other mobile phone for example. To use this function, it is of course necessary to have a 3G package that allows access to the Internet by sending and receiving data on your phone. To avoid surprises, I recommend a package that is not limited in the amount of data exchanged.
