how to make windows 8 laptop as hotspot

I have a USB modem (MTS), I used this to connect to internet.
I am using windows 8 laptop.

I need to know that is it possible that I make this laptop as hotspot just like my Iphone so that my other devices like Ipad can use the internet.

If yes then how can I do this in windows 8

My laptop is a Lenovo laptop and Lenovo provided a Hotspot utility (in the Metro interface). Your vendor have may done the same.

Otherwise, in Windows 8 there is a command mode way of doing this. See the link below from Redmond Pie with instructions.
