There is wifi network, but only 1 device can use it.

Suppose I connect my Galaxy Nexus to that wifi, is it possible to share that to other phones?

I know that I can share 3g connection to other phones via wifi, but is it possible to share wifi via wifi?

It is possible using pc though http://www.virtualwifirouter.com/

uhhh don't think that'd be possible. You can see that if you're on WiFi and try to turn on WiFi Hotspot, it disables your WiFi.

what kinda stupid network are you connecting to that only lets one device connect?

I've just thought of this off the top of my head so don't blame me if it doesn't work but it would seem feasible if;

1) First phone set to share/tether via bluetooth to 2nd phone
2) 2nd phone turns on Wifi tether
3) other devices connect to 2nd phone.

Let us know if this works as I'm not about to collect all the phones in the house to test this out hahaha.
