How to Share Laptop Internet : Turn Laptop into a WiFi Hotspot

Wants to share your internet from laptop via WiFi to other compatible devices? You can turn your laptop into a WiFi Hotspot to wirelessly share any Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network to other WiFi device like laptop, desktop or mobile phones. Take any internet connection and share it wirelessly with any number of devices with no additional hardware.

Connectify is a free and easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption. With Connectify you can share expensive airport Wi-Fi with co-workers, create a hotspot in your ethernet-only hotel or dorm room, even extend the range of your home router. The possibilities are endless.
