    "Good, some issues with setup on different computers"

    January 02, 2012   |   By islandluber

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Does what it says. I live in a one where there is no internet other than usb air cards and phone plans. This allows us to wireless teather using an aircard to several computers at once - better than passing around the usb device.

    Cons

    Setup looked easy but i ran into a couple of bugs - probably more computer related:
    Running Windos 7
    Had to download a MS hotfix (Conectify-me program directed this)
    Didnt work at first other than on ethernet connection
    I had to upgrade all the internet drivers -- then it worked fine. Seems like some of these drivers don't get updated on teh regular Windows updates....

    Summary

    I am buying two more copies to use to make life easier.... and I won't have to always have my iphone with MyWi teather tied up for internet...

    "all fine, but..."

    December 23, 2011   |   By userhalak

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    does what it says. shared my 3g with no complications. setup is very simple.

    Cons

    slows down net speed on host pc/laptop even when closing/stopping the application.

    Summary

    all devices connected to the host pc/laptop work just fine. but if u decide to use the host pc (which i have to use) then net speed becomes too slow where some sites cant open. this happens even if no one is sharing your net or even after stopping/closing it. The only way I got my speed back to normal was to uninstall the software and restart. i uninstalled/restarted and tested speed then reinstalled/restarted and tested speed a few times, result was the same which says that the fault was from the application. But mind you, all other devices that connected to my laptop/pc worked just fine (android/iphone/Laptop_win7 and XP).

    "Waste of Time"

    December 21, 2011   |   By iShiba1922

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Nothing- looked appealing, but worthless

    Cons

    All the options of connecting are ONLY available through the "pro" option. It wouldn't let me connect or set up my wifi network to my iPad. I couldn't even name my network or set my password, and I tried redownloading it and uninstalling it TWICE!

    Summary

    Look for something better or just buy a friggin' router.

    "Useless. Windows can do what this does."

    November 23, 2011   |   By dextbgen

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Gives Wi-fi. But Windows itself can do that through ad hoc.

    Cons

    I cannot put my computer to sleep or hibernation, because when I try to do that blue screen error occurs. Even when I just fold my laptop screen, the error occurs.

    Summary

    Windows can turn your laptop into a Wi-fi hotspot through ad hoc. You can find the directions at lifehacker. No need to install this extra piece of crap.

    "Doesn't Work! Customer service sucks!"

    November 07, 2011   |   By jonnydk82

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    It didn't give my computer a virus.

    Cons

    Everything

    Summary

    I actually never right reviews but in this case I will... I downloaded this product with the intention to use it as a repeater for my phone. That doesn't work. Nor does it work when you only have internet via ethernet cable & you want to turn your laptop into a wifi hotspot. Nor does it work when you pay $30 for the upgrade. And worst of all (the main reason I'm writing this review) is that when you pay a company $30 dollars you expect some customer service. The only way you get a response out of these wonderful people is if you "like" their facebook page and then ***** & complain on every post they put on the newsfeed. In which case they still won't troubleshoot and get the product working for you. Please don't download this product!

    "Cannot connect what it takes away"

    November 04, 2011   |   By johngml

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    None as it never worked

    Cons

    A laptop that has a great connection every time cannot connect at all with this installed. How it is meant to work when it removes your connection I have no idea. A very poor setup for the software makes things even worse as it is not intuitive and just wants you to pay for the pro version.

    Summary

    A great idea that doesn't work as it removes the connection you originally had with the internet whilst confusing the hell out of you with its setup. Uninstalled and highly not recommended until it actually works which I will never know as I won't touch it again.

    "Perfect, but need little improvements..."

    October 16, 2011   |   By Smankusors

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    This is usedul for me! I need the access internet for Android, for my Nokia, and other my devices. Compatible with Windows 8 too.

    Cons

    For DS is not avaible (WEP type, not ad-hoc)
    Make my internet speed slow
    A speed limiter feature not avaible.

    Summary

    Before this version, I do not like this software. Because causes blue screen while connecting to the internet (does not support dial-up). But after install this version 3, does not happen again. Now this softare can be used on my computer.
