Connectify Hotspot is an easy to use software router for Windows computers that utilizes your PC’s built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection with friends, co-workers, and mobile devices.
At Home: Connectify Hotspot can easily act as your primary router or even a repeater for your home router, extending its range and providing Internet access wherever you need it. Connect to your home network, enter the same Wi-Fi name and password, and hit “Start Hotspot.” Devices will automatically connect to the Internet through either your Connectify Hotspot or home router depending on proximity.
Before you know it you can finally have Internet access in that impossible back room or basement. In addition, if you run Connectify Hotspot away from home with these settings, any devices that need to be bound to a specific network (such as Eye-Fi cards or wireless printers) will work flawlessly with no additional configuration no matter where you are! So forget trying to mess around on the command line with ICS, Virtual Wi-Fi, or Hosted Network, just install Connectify Hotspot and have a real hotspot up and running in seconds.
On the road: Connectify Hotspot placed second in Lifehacker.com’s Top 10 Downloads for a Road Warrior Laptop and it’s not hard to see why. For the modern traveler, Internet connectivity is a lifeline. Airports, Hotels, and Coffee Shops know this and charge accordingly, often as much as $10-$15 per day, per connection! These fees can quickly add up when traveling with family, friends, or co-workers. The handful of hotels that do provide free Internet access occasionally only supply you with an ethernet jack, which leaves Wi-Fi only devices and smart phones in the dark. Even the lucky few that have mobile 3G/4G cards or USB adapters are limited to a single connection.
Connectify Hotspot users can save money on multiple Wi-Fi connections while on the road and still get all their devices online simultaneously.
At work or school: Many colleges, schools, businesses, and private institutions have restrictive limits on the amount of devices an individual can have registered to their wireless networks. In this day and age, these quotas are quickly exceeded by the wide variety of Wi-Fi enabled devices (such as smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and gaming systems) we use on a regular basis. With Connectify Hotspot running on a laptop or desktop PC, you can circumvent these limits and securely connect any number of devices to your personal Wi-Fi network.
Offline Networking: Even without an active Internet connection, you can still run a Connectify Hotspot. This allows you to “Fling” files to other Wi-Fi devices, provide wireless access to shared folders or drives on your network, as well as play LAN games with others.
