"Super easy WiFi sharing!"

March 08, 2011  |  By NJ_AHMAD

 |  Version: Connectify 2.1.0.16429

Pros

This program makes sharing your Internet connection super-easy! It's great that you can just let it do all the technical configuring stuff in the background.

Cons

None so far. But I'm sure to find a few when I use it longer.

"Good at the beginning"

February 26, 2011  |  By bettyinsweden

 |  Version: Connectify 2.1.0.16429

Pros

I loved how easy it was to set up and get friends connected.

Cons

However, after a few days I could not start the Hotspot. I removed it from my computer and a few weeks later tried it again. Again I had the same results. I would love to know what I am doing wrong.

Summary

If anyone has any ideas of what the problem may be I would like to be informed. It is a good application and I really would like to be able to use it. We are two old people that share an internet connection. Just us two, no one else.

"Came the closest to working"

February 14, 2011  |  By ldgilman12

 |  Version: Connectify 2.1.0.16429

Pros

Installed used the wizard to setup my Dell Inspiron. My Nook Color would actually see my new hotspot. Then dropped the connection.

Cons

Emailed their tech support, with the requested logs, haven't heard from them either.

Summary

My Nook Color has no problem connecting to my D-Link router. I just may have to use my cell phone as a hot spot. Which would be ok for the short bursts that my eReader would need. Won't work for a tablet.

"Causes Constant BLUE SCREENS"

January 31, 2011  |  By morpheus2021

 |  Version: Connectify 2.1.0.16429

Pros

Excellent functionality and very easy to use

Cons

Causes Blue Screen of Death within 5 minutes of starting it.

Summary

This looks like a great piece of software and worked wonderfully for the first five minutes. Then my PC crashed with blue screen of death. Reboot, restart Connectify and the same thing happened. Uninstalled Connectify and no more blue screens. This is the only time I've ever seen blue screen on Win7 in over a year!

Would love to use this if they could get it stable...
