"Doesn't work as well as advertised."

August 18, 2011  |  By Mr-Reality

 |  Version: Connectify 2.2.0.18566

Pros

Excellent when working with a wired LAN as the internet source. Connects with other Wi-Fi equipments easily

Cons

Terrible with other wireless modems, infact if you attempt to use it at the same time with a wireless modem, it can damage your computer. BLUE SCREEN

"Program ran for a couple of minutes before crashing."

August 16, 2011  |  By Minquepaw

 |  Version: Connectify 2.2.0.18566

Pros

What I saw after installing the program looked good, but then in minutes my laptop blue-screened, crashing completely.

Cons

Installing this program will certainly wreck your computer ... I had to use 'System Restore' (thank heavens I have my laptop automatically create 'System Restore Points') in 'Safe Mode' to even get my computer to function again. DO NOT INSTALL!

Summary

I STRONGLY SUGGEST that you do not download & install this program ... if you are thinking about downloading this program to "try it out" I suggest that you make sure you have a recently updated 'System Restore Point' as a backup in case your system crashes, like mine did. If you have read through the list of reviews, you will see only two out of many raters that had a positive outcome with this program. So, you are being fore-warned that the percentage of failure is around 95% - that is seriously bad mojo, and unless you have a magic wand to 'make' the program work ... stupidity of use will earn you a crashed computer, and possibly a very expensive fix. If you do install the program, crash your computer, and unable to restore it, it may be cheaper to just buy a new computer - hopefully your not, and it won't, so you & it will be fine. ;)

"A great software, yet still have space to improve"

August 12, 2011  |  By AdrianK96

 |  Version: Connectify 2.2.0.18566

Pros

- Allows internet sharing to other users
- Can set your own IP address that is to be assigned to connected clients.
- Allows smartphone, desktop, laptop, cellphone with WiFi capabilities, tablets, gaming consoles to connect to Connectify
- It's FREE!

Cons

- Requires some configuration (in Windows) before the connected client can use the Internet shared by Connectify.

Summary

With Connectify, you don't need to spend bucks for a router. Connectify lets your Windows 7 PC acts as a router so that devices with WiFi capabilities can connect to your PC and gain internet access (or LAN access).

I have issues with the latest version of Connectify where I got stuck while installing Connectify. If I were to force exit the Connectify installer and rerun the installer, I will have issues accessing the Internet.

However, installing an older version of Connectify solves the problem above and now still using it.

It would be better if it includes Bandwidth Quota or something like that, so that our clients will not consume all the internet bandwidths.

"Broke my WLAN, uninstall doesn't remove anything."

August 08, 2011  |  By TokikoHyuuga

 |  Version: Connectify 2.2.0.18566

Pros

Worked for a few hours.

Cons

Broke my wireless.
System restore didn't help.
Attempted to contact support multiple times, and received only one reply, saying they'd "see to my problem" later.

Summary

Don't install unless you want to break your computer.

"Could not event complete the installation !"

August 02, 2011  |  By iapad

 |  Version: Connectify 2.2.0.18566

Pros

None. I was not able to install the application.

Cons

Well I should have read the doubtful reviews before trying to install the software.

Summary

I created a restore point before attempting to install this application. The process hang mid-way and I had to go to task manager to kill the process. Thereafter I reverted back to the restore point I previously created. Thereafter I had no problems (but no application to share my laptop as a wifi hotspot).
