make sure you are near your computer with the computer wifi dongle activated
Turn your phones wifi off turn its portable hotspot on
if you have the code make sure the phone hasn't changed it (sometimes the change automatically for security? reasons)
go to your computer wifi connection and look for your phone
click to connect when you find your phone, when asked for the code enter it in XP it will want the same code twice. Tick the box to connect automatically.
You should now have internet via your phone.
