Softwares to create WiFi Hotspot in Windows 8.1, Windows 8/7 PC/Laptop
Connectify Hotspot Pro
There are lot of softwares available on the Internet to make hotspot but this is the best and easiest way to create WiFi hotspot in Windows 8.1 or Windows 7/8.
- I have been using this software for last three years.
- You don’t need to have technical knowledge to use this software. Just download & install like any other windows software and reboot your Windows laptop or PC.
- Then open connectify hotspot pro and start hotspot.
- You can see the step by step article and download link to create wifi hotspot using connectify in Windows.
One and only worst part of this awesome software is it’s not a free software you have to buy it. If you can afford $30 kindly buy this awesome software and help developers. If you can’t afford that much money for a software as usual you can download it from Internet.
I know everyone cannot buy a software for $30. If you are looking for alternative method this is probably the best I can say.
- This is also one of the best software and very easy to use.
- You can create hotspot in Windows 8 or Windows 7 as per official website but i have tested this on windows 8.1 also it’s working fine.
- Download this software from here >> link to download
- Install this software and open it you will see a prompt like in below.
- There you can change hotspot name and password.
While opening this software, open it as Administrator. Right click on the software on desktop or in Windows search then click on Run as Administrator.
This is another software to make WiFi hotspot in Windows 8.1 0r Windows 7/8 PC/Laptop.
- You can download this software for free but it contains virus.
- I really hate this software because it contains malicious Adware in it. Never install this software in your PC.
I have tested this software 3 months back at that time it was full of Adware. If you are using this software let me know your opinion.
This also a good software but it is not a free software. It is available for 7 day free trail version but i think we don’t this because we already have Connectify if we want to buy a software. If you need a free one you can go for MyPublicWiFi.
Still there are lot of softwares are there but many of them are not working properly. I hope this tutorial helped you don’t forget to share this tutorial and let me know if you have any other best softwares.
