How many PCs can you run off a mobile phone?

We had a situation in the office today where our internet went down. So we had a game to see whether we could rig up one of our mobiles to run the whole network. So which phone was the best and how many PCs did they manage to run at a decent speed?

 

We tried a few phones and the one that won was…………. the HTC Desire S
How did we do it? We tethered it to a laptop then bridged the laptop to the office router. The office router then connected to a switch and then to the PCs.

 

After  just a few moments of grunting and groaning everyone’s internet splutters into life. So how many PCs did we manage to get surfing simultaneously?

 

Fifteen!

 

Can anyone beat that?
