Upon activating the WiFi hotspot on my xperia play stock .42
My pc don't have an internet connection with both vista 32bit and windows7 64bit. I don't have any issue using the hotspot on my xperia mini. I would appreciate it if someone would shed a light on this.

Hi, when you wrote 'My pc don't have an internet connection', do you mean PC not able to connect or see the Wi-Fi hotspot network?
Can you try with other PC/Laptop (although you have already tried 2).

What is the Wi-Fi hotspot security configuration? Did you try by selecting Open?
The other option is to update phone as yours is still running on .42.

In that case, see if software repair using PC Companion resolves this issue.
PC Companion will prompt you that phone software is up to date, just continue to repair software.
Be aware that this process will erase phone data completely.
Keep us updated.

Yes, I've done the software twice already. But had the same result that's why I've posted it here. At first I suspected the network carrier but that disproves it, for my mini's hotspot is working with the same sim inserted.

Can't think of anything else .... you may want to send phone to your local Service Centre for check, not sure if it is hardware related.

Just to be clear, I can browse the internet using data enabled. My problem lies in sharing it via WiFi hotspot. Also, when using USB tethering, again there's no internet connection.
I guess i'll wait for the ICS update to see if it will work there, before sending it off to a nearest Sony service center.

Yes, clear with your situation .... but don't have any more advices for you since even a software repair didn't help.
Hopefully ICS can resolve this issue.
