Have you ever been in a hotel without free wireless Internet access? As an IT consultant, I am a frequent traveler and often find myself in the situation where wireless access is $10+ a day and charged on a per-device basis. This really sucks when you have multiple laptops, a phone and an iPad.
I found a free tool that solves this problem by allowing you to easily turn your Windows 7 PC into a wireless hotspot to accommodate connecting multiple devices. While this is technically possible to configure manually yourself, Connectify makes this quick and easy, and allows you to visually track what devices are connected to your hotspot, which is provides a measure of additional security. Connectify allows multiple users to piggyback off a single connection and runs on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 r2. Setup is wizard-based and very simple. Simple and a huge money saver.
In the words of Napoleon Dynamite – “flippin sweet!”.
Here’s what the interface looks like.
