Creates a hotspot on a PC/laptop with a Wi-Fi card.
A computer that is connected to Internet and has a Wi-Fi card in it, can be turned into a Wi-Fi access point through this software. Several other devices are then able to share this Internet connection through the Wi-Fi hotspot thus created. The connection may be through DSL, Cable, LAN, Bluetooth, Ethernet, Mobile Broadband Card, Data-Card, Dial-Up, 3G/4G, Wi-Fi and many others. This is a tool then that can help set up an improvised wireless LAN with your friends and family, students or even colleagues in a hotel room for a quick meeting. The devices that can share the connections need not be computers alone and can easily be Wi-Fi enable devices like mobile smartphones or tablets. Even Wi-Fi enable video games consoles could easily share such virtual hot spots.
Since the laptop that is the access point can communicate with a wireless network in its turn, this set up could be viewed as an extension of the access to other devices. These other devices may not be able to access the original signal being too weak for these devices. Once the laptop acts as another level router, the wireless network gets extended locally throughout the house, hotel room or whatever. This local extension is well secured as you are able to set up a network with customized SSID and a key of your choice. The interface to the program is simple to operate. You can start or stop the local hotspot. It is possible to see what devices are connected to you. This is a very good product.
