Create a Wifi Hotspot from a Laptop with an Air Card

I think the title says it all....

I have a Windows XP Machine
I have Internet Connectivity through a Sprint Air Card
The Machine is in a car

Internet works fine on the laptop with the air card

Want to create a wifi hotspot so i can use my itouch in the car as well by creating a wifi hotspot.  I am not sure if the adhoc will work on an itouch....

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I should add that I have seen all the walkthroughs on cnet and online for this as well.....I need to know for sure that this is going to work before i attempt to do it.  Its a corporate laptop with no restrictions....

Yes it will work, we utilize a little ad hoc network to congiure our district ios devices all the time this is the process we use:

I know you have researched but was not sure that just saying yes it will work would do.

Good luck!

Given the instructions on the link above, I am doubtful whether the iPhone connected to the ad hoc wireless network can access the Internet.

In our scenario they do access the internet just fine. We have actually shared from a MacBook, Windows 7 machine and an XP machine depending on where we are. Our IOS devices have to access the internet to register to our Device Management system and this is the process we utilize.
