How To Use Laptop As Wifi Router

I started using my first ever Android smartphone a few days ago and thought it was lame not being able to take advantage of its internet connectivity-dependent features (browsing, video streaming, file syncing, data backup, app downloads, etc.) at home. I’ve been using cable-to-cable DSL connection even with the fact that my laptop came wifi-ready when I bought it more than a year ago.

While googling for information on a good wifi router, I luckily stumbled on a freeware dubbed Virtual Router by CodePlex. As stated on the project description, Virtual Router allows any Windows 7 or 2008 R2 computer to be turned into a wifi hotspot with the use of Windows 7’s Wireless Hosted Network technology or Virtual Wifi.

The Art Of Scamming: Philippine Monitoring Company My Arse

"Hi, this is Rose Martinez from Philippine Monitoring Company. May I speak to the owner of this telephone number please?” said a feminine voice on the phone earlier this morning. "No, he's not here. He's at work. Why?" I replied, with a hint of scepticism. “I see. Maybe I’ll just call again later. Thank you for your time.” Or something like that. I can’t clearly recall the last words she said before dropping off the line.

"The heck was that?" I thought to myself afterwards. Philippine Monitoring Company. Sounds unfamiliar and iffy. Haven’t heard of that before. Hmmm. No one else in the family makes use of the home internet connectivity except me and the phone barely gets picked up daily, so I doubt it’d be directed to someone else.  Was she going to ask me something - like a survey? No, if that was her intention, she wouldn’t have hung up immediately.  It took a few minutes before the conversation completely scaled on my head. F---ing. Scammer.
