"Keeping things simple"

January 30, 2010  |  By khindjal

 |  Version: Connectify 1.1.0.14032

Pros

Sharing your ethernet cable's internet connection has been in windows since vista atleast, however, connectify makes it much easier. If you have one of the supported devices, sharing a wifi connection through a single wireless card is just as easy.

Cons

-Not all devices are supported
-Win7 only (as of this post)

Summary

Invaluable for any windows 7 user with multiple wireless devices that use internet.

"Super easy to set up and use. Saves me tons of wifi $"

January 30, 2010  |  By jeffjphilly

 |  Version: Connectify 1.1.0.14032

Pros

Conects all my devices seamlessly via wifi, no matter what intial Internet connection I have. Saves a lot of money getting my peers online at hotel meetings.

Cons

Wish it had some ad hoc collab/chat tools for use in my personal area network that I set up with it?

Summary

No brainer for any Win 7 user especially if you use multiple devices on the road or need to share wifi connection with friends or colleauges. Hotels will hate this.

"Easy to use, powerful software that has much potential."

January 25, 2010  |  By Helify

 |  Version: Connectify 1.1.0.14032

Pros

It works, for one. And any device can connect to it if it's compatible with WPA2 security.

Cons

Occasionally it gets glitchy when I use it to play my Wii. (If I don't let my Wii fully disconnect from the network and try to go online to play another game, I have to turn off my Wii and turn off Connectify and then turn them back on.)

Summary

This is awesome. My Wii is not compatible with my campus's Cisco enterprise wireless network, and this allows me to play my Wii as much as I want online with the only problem being the problem mentioned in my cons, and as long as I make sure to let it disconnect, it doesn't have any problems at all. The speed is great, and the software actually works without any special configurations.

"Absolutely awesome"

January 25, 2010  |  By chris122990

 |  Version: Connectify 1.1.0.14032

Pros

FREE
Small System Impact
Easy to Use

Cons

Can't choose encryption (Ad-Hoc is forced WEP, AP Mode is forced WPA2)

Summary

Since my college doesn't allow wireless printers and stuff on their network, I use Connectify to connect them directly to my computer.

Also useful for reverse iPhone tethering.

"I love this app, works like a charm!"

January 22, 2010  |  By scottytoodope

 |  Version: Connectify 1.1.0.14032

Pros

Free, lightweight, simple to use, and ACTUALLY WORKS!

Cons

None really, except that it only supports WPA2 encryption at the moment.

Summary

At college I can only have 2 registered devices on the schools wireless network. This app lets me run a WiFi hotspot in the dorms so I can also connect my iPhone and Xbox to the Internet. Brilliant!

I would recommend this to college students everywhere as well as anyone who has to spend a lot of time in airports or hotels. Pay for one connection then run Connectify and instantly anyone traveling with you has Internet access as well. Infinitely useful, if I could give it 10 stars I would.
