Intel introduced a new driver for their WiFi cards, called the Intel My WiFi Technology about 9 months ago. Here is the description from their website:
"Simply put, Intel My WiFi turns a notebook into an Wi-Fi AP that seamlessly takes care of all of the Wi-Fi connection details, allowing users to quickly connect to their devices. Imagine being able to take a picture on a camera, and have it instantly get transferred to your notebook, digital photo frame, or personal media player and print wirelessly - all while remaining connected to the Internet."
In summary, you have a WiFi connection at your hotel? Then this will let your Laptop become a wifi router, to connect your laptop to all other Wifi devices, on to the hotel's internet connection. Without having to bring a special Wifi router with you.
This can only be provided by the system manufacturer (i.e., Lenovo) and not direct from Intel.
SO...when will Lenovo release the latest Intel WiFi Drivers, and include this update with it????
