It sounds like you want to run something on your netbook to act as a wireless router. Is that correct, or are you looking for how to configure your current router (connected via ethernet cable to your netbook) to use wireless?

What OS is the netbook?

If Windows, I imagine (aka hope, I've never tried) the easy setup would be something with Windows Connection Sharing, and the more complicated (depending on what features you want) will involve a virtual machine running some sort of emulator.

Windows Vista.
could Windows Connection Sharing help in making a WifI access point?

I think the first place to start would be Windows Connection Sharing - researching if that would allow your iPhone and PSP to connect, but you may have to go with a hardware solution (ie buy a wireless router).

Hi, I am trying to create an installer for my web application. So I added a web setup project to my solution (I am using VS.NET 2003). Been playing around with it since then and it basically works.

I want to be able to put my files in a specified directory (user specified is good, but i don't mind hardcoding the path either) and...

How do I discover the networks detected by my Wi-Fi adapter? I tried to use WMI. It shows information of the connected network only. There are some other WiFi access points available. But I am not able to retrieve them using WMI(using c# code). The code which I tried is given below. Please let me know if we can detect other access points, which is available and not currently connected with my adapter.
