Connectify is a program for Windows that allows you to share a wireless network connection with other devices. With the help of this intuitive utility, you can turn your desktop computer or laptop into a signal repeater. In contrast to Wifi Bridge, you do not have to use an external WiFi adapter.
After launch, you need to specify the parameters of the wireless access point. There is an option to set the name of the network as well as specify the security password. The application may also generate and display a unique QR code. Thus, in order to connect from a mobile device, you can simply scan it with your camera.
It is necessary to point out that you are able to share a network connection over Ethernet. This feature is extremely useful if you would like to provide Internet access to equipment that does not have a wireless adapter.
The tool gives you the possibility to view a list of active connections. There is also information about channel usage, the amount of data sent and received. Please note that the free version of the program has limitations on the virtual router operation time. In case you want to make the wireless be active for a longer time without breaking the connection, you may purchase a license key on the official website.
