    There are following steps to setup tethering in Windows 7 phones.
    1. From admin command prompt type:

      netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=mywifinetwork key=mysecretkey
    2. Enable new virtual Wi-Fi adapter (it might be disabled upon creation)
    3. From admin command prompt type:

      netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    4. From current internet conection adapter share to the virtual adapter
    5. Connect from wireless client to virtual SSID. Wi-Fi client gets an auto IP and you're good to go.
    After phone you only need to repeat steps 3 & 5 to be up and running.
