Intel My WiFi Technology, Very Cool Mobile Experience

One of the features on my new laptop, Toshiba R705-25P, is the Intel My WiFi Technology. It basically turns the laptop itself into a wireless router capable of hooking up with 8 different devices.  There are so many cool applications for this, for example, you are paying for wireless at the airport and a friend/colleague/family member also wants to surf the web, bang, share it! Also this is totally cool for when you are in a hotel room where they only have ethernet connection and you'd like to have your WiFi devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) connected.  With Intel My WiFi enabled laptops, you can make that happen.

In my scenario, my manager has asked if I can bring in my iPad to work to demonstrate a project we've been working on but it would require internet connection (WiFi in my scenario), since we don't have wireless internet at work, I can bring in my laptop and hookup to the Ethernet, and ensure I get a wireless connection that way. This feature combined with an ultra portable laptop makes for a total, amazing mobile experience.  Imagine the possibilities when the said laptop is tethered to a 4G smart-phone...

The author is exactly correct in that Intel My WiFi Technology does allow what he describes. At most I would fault him for his description of the features of My WiFi. What he failed to mention is that there is a simple way to share the PC's Internet connection with the network that My WiFi creates. You just use Windows' ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). With the latest release 13.2, of My WiFi there is a button on the My WiFi utility labeled "Share My Internet". Using this button My WiFi will configure ICS for you automatically. This would also work is the PC was connected to the Internet through another wireless network.

The really cool thing about Intel My WiFi is that it allows the 1 Intel Centrino WiFi module to work on two networks simultaneously; At the same time the PC can be connected to a wireless router which has Internet (WLAN) and the PC's own wireless network that My WiFi creates (WPAN).

Intel My WiFi is one of the key components to Intel Wireless Display Haven't heard of Intel(R) Wireless Display then check it out. With Intel Wireless Display you can stream you favorite shows on Hulu or Netflix to your HDTV wirelessly!

Did you really get ICS working? I'm trying to connect to a share my wireless internet connection through a single WiFi Link 5300 adapter (running as an AP with the Intel My WiFi Utility), but I cannot share this connection. What needs to be done?

Thanks, Chris
