The most easy way would be this open source package:

https://virtualrouter.codeplex.com/

Speaks for itself, don't even need to read manuals, it's that simple.

Hey there

Being a freebie addict i would definitely suggest you to use virtualrouterplus or connectify.These are the the best software you can get anywhere and the most important thing is that ; they allow you to define network name, password , connection to be used for routing  and let you browse net using pc while tethering the same or different connections to others.

Thanks
~Dex
