I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and a broadband connection with an unlimited plan. My modem is normal type without WiFi. Can I use that internet connection with my phone?

    you have to create an ad-hoc n/w in ur computer. then allow the internet sharing on that, and just connect ur mobile to that ad-hoc network.

    The answer depends if you have a Wireless Adapter installed on your PC or Laptop. Wireless adapter is the thing which can recognize Wifi networks. It can be made to work in reverse and become a Wifi Hotspot. The app which I use to achieve this is Connectify's Lite version- . This should solve your problem. There are a lot of other apps which do the same job. A simple search with keywords- Laptop as Wifi Hotspot here at MUO should give you all the results that you need.

      The mobile phone needs to be able to find an wireless signal and the only way is to have a wirelless modem to put that signal out.

    If you have a laptop that has access to the broadband, then you just need to turn it into a hotspot. Download Connectify . This will solve your problems

      Hmm...Didn't know about this software. Thanks. Maybe the lite version will work for the questioner. This page compares the two in a feature list:
