The Windows XP operating system allows users to create a hot spot. Hotspots allow the Windows XP computer to share their Internet connection with other computers or devices that have Internet capabilities. You don't have to be a computer wizard to get your Windows XP sharing features turned on. You can do it with minimal knowledge of the system. Many people use this to share wireless Internet connections with other devices that are not able to get onto a network through a wireless card.
