Part 1. Can I Use My Lenovo Laptop/Desktop as a WiFi Hotspot?

Yes, you can use your Lenovo Y50, Yoga, Thinkpad or any other Lenovo computer as a free WiFi hotspot to share internet connection, as long as your computer has internet connection and a working wireless network adapter.

A wireless network adapter is the must-have device to make your PC share internet connection. Almost all Lenovo laptops and notebooks have a wireless network adapter already installed, and parts of desktop computers come with one. You’d better check if your Lenovo computer has a working wireless network adapter or not.

Go to the Device Manager to find if there is a network adapter that includes “wireless” in the name under “Network adapters”.

Note: Click on the Start button on your computer and type “device manager” in the search box. Then you can locate the Device Manager.

If your Lenovo laptop or desktop doesn’t have a wireless network adapter, you can purchase one from electronics stores or online. The USB wireless LAN network card is a good choice, because it can be moved around to different computers.

Make sure the wireless network adapter or the USB wireless network card is correctly installed on your Lenovo computer. You can try to install a correct wireless network driver for it.
