if you have windows mobile 6.5 or older you only need to connect your device through activesync and then you go into "connection settings" (or something like that) and you can share internet by selecting computer connected to internet (or something simlar).
then you have internet on your device, so you can use any app like "wifi router" to share the connection with other devices..
i don't know how fast it is doing it this way, but it should work!

Android Wifi connection
I have installed the WMWifiRouter software on my ATT Tilt II and it works fine with a WIN 7 Tablet and my XP Notebook, both USB and wireless.
My two androids refuse to show the signal although the wifi scanner app shows good signal.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the HTC 7 Tab both show
"WMWifiRouter_2563 not in range, remembered"
I need a cure if you know one.

Both androids receive my home wifi just fine and work well on the road at Hotels and FBOs.

yeah i had the same problem, guess the wifi bandwidth for winmobile and android is different, i could get connected to my old iphone 3gs but bot to my iphone 4s... maybe they are working on different bandwidths?
