Create Windows 7 WiFi Hotspot using Connectify

Today RWW found an awesome software, Connectify, which solved my problem in one second. Honestly just one.  This software allows you to convert your Windows 7 computer into a HOTSPOT and then share an internet connection on your computer in a click.

  • First, download a copy  Connectify by signing up for the beta. Since the download link will be sent to you on email, make sure you gave a right one.
  • Install it. Once done a small icon will show up in your system tray. Double click it.
  • Now you need to give a unique name, phrase and select connection which has internet and you want to share.
  • Now follow the steps which I wrote on connecting Blackberry  WiFi.
  • Once done your BlackBerry device will show up on HotSpot List.
  • Once you see that, use your BlackBerry browser to browse the internet easily.
  • With 1.0 you can also see a list of previously connected device list and currently connected list of device.

The only drawback is that it will only work with a Windows 7 computer.

  1. Thanks for writing about Connectify. We thought you may want to know that Connectify 1.0 is now available for free as the first production ready release. Some older wireless cards do not yet have full Windows 7 support, and for those devices Connectify will act as an Ad Hoc connection manager, instead of a full blown Wi-Fi Access Point.

    Thank you again for your support.
