Make Your PC a Wi-Fi Hotspot with Connectify

Connectify is a cool free service which lets you transform your Windows 7 PC into a Wi-Fi hotspot just by running a little application. After downloading and running the Connectify installer, you’ll see a new icon appear in your system tray. Click the icon to set up your Wi-Fi network by entering in the network name, passphrase, and by choosing which internet connection you’re planning to share from the drop-down provided. Once that’s done, click the “hotspot on” button to start sharing your connection. That’s it! Anyone looking for your wireless network will see it in their list just as any other Wi-Fi network would appear.

There’s no additional hardware required to use this service but you will need to have a Windows 7 PC (32 or 64-bit) – older versions of Windows are not supported.

Connectify is still in beta, so all the typical disclaimers apply. However, those that have tested it so far have not reported issues. You can sign up to join the beta yourself by clicking here.
