I have windows sony vaio laptop which is connected to Internet through wifi. I want to share connection from laptop to iPhone. I see some articles on sharing Internet from laptop to device WHEN laptop is connected to LAN, but here my laptop is connected ti WIFI.

Please guide me on this. Links to articles will be fine.

You cannot do that, because the WiFi card cannot be connected to another WiFi spot as broadcasting his own signal. If you want to become a wireless hotspot, you'll loose connectivity with the internet. Therefor you'll need to be connected to internet with LAN. To do what you want, you'll need an external WiFi card.

    I agree with Mathias. A secondary wifi dongle will be needed.
