Or what if you have a wired Ethernet connection at your house? You don't have a dedicated wireless router, but you want to connect a Wi-Fi gadget.

Connectify Hotspot could be the solution to both problems. It is a free download that lets you turn your Windows 7 or 8 computer into a wireless access point.
