if it's android just go to network config and enable wifi hotspot. set a password too obviously!

Not always this easy, not all versions of android support wifi tethering. IIRC 2.2 supports it, unless you root the phone. So not good advice, OP what sort of phone are you running is the first question I'd like to know. Most android phones can work as usb modern if wifi does not work.

You are much better off using USB tethering anyway as its easier on the phones battery.

Not sure if its enabled on the 845 but you can check under Settings > Wireless & networks > Tethering.If there is a checkbox called 'USB tethering' you should be good to go.

Using USB tethering at the moment. Offered to help a friend move house, but right now we're all just sitting in his garage waiting for the real-estate knob to deliver the keys.
