Turn Your Laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot with Virtual Router Plus

By February 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Virtual Router PlusThis weekend I was at a hotel where the rooms had wired internet access and Wi-Fi was only available in the lobby. That wasn't great for the many devices, including the iPad, that couldn't connect over Ethernet. There's a new program that solves this problem, and it works with Windows 8 as well as Windows 7: Virtual Router Plus.

The program is similar to previously mentioned Connectify, but has a smaller footprint and is simpler to set up (just give your network a name and password), albeit with fewer settings options than Connectify or Connectify Pro.

If your hardware supports it, you could even share a wireless connection with other wireless devices.

You can download Virtual Router Plus here.

I just signed on for U-verse Internet. My computer runs about as fast as it did when I had DSL. What’s the hype?

Store-bought food is filled with preservatives and unnecessary additives that can be bad for your health.
While functionality is the number one goal of every home appliance it does
not hurt to look good either. Since 1919, they have been giving homeowners and professional cooks alike great quality.
