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?
