Hey D. Joy,
Try this,

touch Applications > Settings > Wireless and network > Tethering and portable hotspots.

Touch Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings.
Read the introduction and touch OK
Touch Portable Wi-Fi hotspot to add a checkmark and activate the feature. If you have Wi-Fi connected, you will first be prompted to disconnect. Touch Yes.
Touch Configure portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
Enter or edit the Network SSID, Security setting and Password.
Touch Hide my device to create a checkmark if you want your device hidden.
Touch Save.


Activate Wi-Fi on the device that wants to connect to your phone.
Find [AndroidHotspotxxxx] in the Wi-Fi network list and connect to it.

The connected device can now use internet through your Portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
Note: Activating Wi-Fi and connecting to your phone will be different depending on the type of device.

Good Luck!

I tried to use my galaxy s IIx as a wifi hotspot and it wouldn't work. I downloaded an app called Elixer 2 and it worked fine with the app.
