WiFi

Unfortunately it is impossible to connect the mobile phone directly to the internet, using only a wire connection to the laptop. The possible solution, that could be useful, is to make your laptop itself as a WiFi access point. Here is some short example how to do that on Windows. First of all you need to check if the WiFi network adapter in the laptop supports the so-called Hosted Network mode. To do that you need to run a command-line command "netsh wlan show drivers". If in the field "Hosted network supported" you see yes, then it is possible. Next, to actually create an access point you need to run the following commands in the command prompt in administrator mode:
-netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=WiFiName key=12345
where you may choose which name your WiFi access point will have (ssid) and your secret password to access it (key).
-netsh wlan start hostednetwork
and this command eventually starts your access point.
Now you need to open network adapter settings on your laptop, choose your LAN internet connection and in the properties,in the Sharing Tab you need to "allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection" and select your created access point

OperatingSystem:

You mention it is Sunday, so this must be a home network. 10 devices would place some significant load on it. Apart from trying to disconnect some of them, you can also try to change the WiFi's channel to improve performance. There are apps like WiFi analyzer (Android) for that.

Taggings:

You should probably add a text stating that the network was simply overloaded. Wasn't clear at first read

Test MAC authentifaction of a WiFi access point.

When a new WiFi access point is set up several security relevant configuration options have to be changed. First password authentication through WPA/PSK is enabled. Additionally MAC address authentication can be enabled to provide access only to certain machines which have thir MAC address entered in a list of known MAC addresses. The goal is to test if this feature was correctly enabled.

mobile access point

<p><p>You don't call yourself a proud owner of a data connect card but found yourself several times in the need to go online with your notebook without any hotspots or wired internet connections nearby. Your data connection on your cell phone is quite fast, even faster than your cell phones CPU is able to utilize. And of course you don't always carry your connect cable with you around. How can we quickly connect to the phone and use the data connection?</p><div><br /></div></p>
