Use your Windows Mobile 6 device as a cheapo wireless router


The Internet brings us yet another use for a Windows Mobile 6 device to amaze your friends and confound your enemies, a wireless router on the cheap. Simply install the freeware / donation-ware WMWifiRouter software on your Windows handset and you -- plus friends and family -- will be surfing with it as your new router in minutes. Of course, as with any semi hack, a bit of reading is required, but if you hit up XDA Developers forums you're sure to glean all the knowledge required to get this working. We've not had a chance to check this out so feel free to drop us a line with your mileage. Oh, and if your mobile data plan isn't of the unlimited variety and doesn't include tethering, you may want to pass on this.
