Apps > Settings > More Settings >Tethering and Portable Hotspot.

 

Touch potable wifi hotspot.

 

Click configure down at the bottom

 

Enter in the ID name and password.
MAKE SURE to set this!

 

Click save..


Then turn it on at the top slider

As I said above.. make sure to secure it.  One of my wifes clients.. didnt.  And forgot to turn it off.  $500 bill later.. someone in their apartment building was leaching off of it Smiley Sad

And remember to keep an eye on your data.. it can go QUICKLY, so watch what you are using depending on how much your plan has.
