Depending on your phone make and model, there should be an option that says something like mobile AP or Hotspot, you set this up, give it a name, security method and password, and thenm activate.
then on your laptop activate the wireless look for the name of your AP or hotspot and connect to it with the password you used.
also note that most phone use a Automatic IP address to connect to internet, so the IPv4 has to be set to Auto...
if the dell connects to phone but not to the internet I would say its the IP settings,,

Hope it helps

How do you Connect asus laptop to portable hotspot

On the right hand side of the taskbar you should see what appears to be an icon like signal bars on a mobile phone. Clicking on this will open a box with available hotspots or access points. Click the one you wish to join and then click connect. After an interrogation of the hotspot it will either connect automatically if there is no security required or a dialogue box will appear asking for the password or network key. This is case sensitive so enter it exactly as it appears on the hotspots sticker or as supplied by the hotspot owner. If you enter the correct key it will then connect and you will have access to all the features provided by that hotspot. Most hotspots and personal access point devices also have a button that you can press to initiate a connection without knowing the password.

Download "Connectifyme". It is a free version with other powerful options in paid version.
But keep in mind. You either need 2 wireless adapter, 1 for internet connectivity and 1 for hotspot.
Or, you connect to the internet via LAN port and wireless adapter for wireless hotspot.
Or, connect to the internet via LAN port to a wireless modem and hotspot with your builtin wireless adapter.
Let me know if you need more info.

How do i hotspot the internet to my playstation3

i'm not really sure what you're asking here, as a hotspot is basically an access point, so if you're trying to connect your ps3 to a mobile hotspot or something along those lines simply search for wireless access points nearby ON the playstation and connect to the appropriate one.
