Also, it not true that you need another wifi adapter when you want to create a Virtual WiFi when connected to actual WiFi connection.

And what you showed in screen shot is actually quite normal.

Yea that screenshot had nothing to do with my problem, it was just the "dial up" connection created by Nokia PC Suite refused to share, a manual one had to be created.

I probably can't use virtual wifi when it's connected to an actual wifi because the "actual wifi" is also an ad-hoc network. I always get one of the error messages that you describe in your original post and re-enabling the wifi adapter doesn't help, anyway it's no big deal, all is working now, thanks for your help!

Also sorry that the particular step was confusing. I'll edit it and make it more pointy.

Can you look at it now and tell me if its understandable?

Yeah, perhaps a little better. We'll only know if you get no other confusion on that point (but perhaps it was only me, anyway). Thanks!

Thanks, ggfairy. I set up the wifi already using the original guide and was tired of having to go into the steps to set it up on each reboot (actually my technophobe girlfriend was the one having issues). It seems I can use your GUI in conjunction with the original setup and have it set as an admin straight away. Good solution!

I guess your setup is as below:

2 wifi router - connected to laptop, out of which 1 is connected to laptop with LAN and another one is connected through USB. You are getting the internet through USB?

And by looking at screen shot all I can say is that you have put a static IP address to your LAN connection which is actually required for internet sharing.
Actually, on which adapter were you trying to share the internet?

That's weird because if internet is coming in another device connected through virtual wifi, then even the phone should have the internet. In your phone, go to settings - wifi settings - advanced to check the IP address. It should be similar to 192.168.127.xxx

Sorry. In my previous message I typed 127 instead of 137.

So in your phone too it should be similar to 192.168.137.xxx

In phone try setting a static IP to 192.168.137.10

Actually this should have happened auto as dynamic IP. But since you tell another laptop is fine under virtual wifi try the above static IP in phone.
