    "Does not work!!!!!"

    June 5, 2012  |   By 955891702

    Version: MhotSpot 3.0

    Pros

    I have not found one.

    Cons

    There is none.

    Summary

    I installed the product and it connected one time. I have to fix a problem I was having with my internet and it would not set back up. It was not listed in my connections. This product is worthless.

    "Don't waste your time"

    January 26, 2012  |   By doomsday55

    Version: MhotSpot 3.0

    Pros

    user friendly? If it actually worked that is.

    Cons

    Didn't work at all.

    Summary

    This program is basically idiot proof to the point of being useless. Once installed it only gives you three options. Setup, Start, Stop. Once you "Setup" your wireless one would assume start would run it. I have no idea if it does or not because it never tells you if its running or not to begin with and after pressing start multiple times my other wireless computer still did not see the network. Don't waste your time on this.

    "Brilliant piece of software!"

    January 13, 2012  |   By samirqadir

    Version: MhotSpot 3.0

    Pros

    Works like a charm, once you set it up.

    Cons

    Documentation is helpful but didn't list all the steps I needed to complete to get it to work. Still, make sure to read their set-up guide (and my tips below) before you give up on Mhotspot! The Mhotspot setup guide can be found under Help --> Offline Help.

    Summary

    The product works great, but setting up took a while. Even when following the steps in their product guide, I couldn't get it to work until I finally figured out the missing piece.

    Before doing anything else, make sure you have an available wireless adapter that will serve as a virtual router. On my Windows 7 PC, this was found under Network and Sharing Center --> Change Adapter Settings. It shows up as Wireless Network Connection 2, and it uses the "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter" driver. Make sure this is present, and enabled - this is important! I spent a lot of time trying to get Mhotspot to work before realizing that I needed to enable the virtual miniport network connection.

    After you enable this network connection, it will say "Not connected" at first. Now follow all the steps in the Mhotspot guide and setup should be quick and painless. Once your hotspot is working, the virtual adapter should show the network name of your shared LAN, instead of saying "Not connected."

    "Get Connected in One Click"

    December 8, 2011  |   By Justy2012

    Version: MhotSpot 3.0

    Pros

    Easy to understand, Simple layout, Secure and cheaper than a Router.

    Cons

    There is a start and stop button but does not fade one out to say if your connected (in the network connections it will show you but inconvenient). That is the only one thing i can find wrong so far.

    Summary

    This software is great for anyone who wants to setup a hotspot and get others connected. Simple one click to activate setup. Has a wizard to create your own password and hotspot name so no-one else can access your files etc and its really simple to understand.
    I am using Windows 7 Home premium but may vary from other OS's.

    "works perfectly if you bother to set it up"

    November 24, 2011  |   By rboatright7

    Version: MhotSpot 3.0

    Pros

    Wired to wifi router turns your laptop into a wifi hotspot for your phone or tablet when you are somewhere without wireless but have a wired connection available.

    To use, you have to run it (no installation) and then (each time) click setup and give your hotspot a name and an (at least 8 character password)

    If you do that, then click start -- your laptop's wifi comes on and is a hotspot.

    It can also be used to hook a cellular model up as a wifi.

    It can not do wifi to wifi, that's just silly. :-)

    but it works perfect for me on vista or windows 7. If I could give it 10 stars I would

    Cons

    It is non-obvious that you have to hit setup and put in a name and password.

    The program can not (will not) create a non-secured hotspot, it MUST have a password

    Summary

    Good stuff. Get it.

    Updated on Nov 24, 2011

    I left out a step. You must go to the network sharing center, select your wired network, and go to properties and sharing, and ENABLE sharing on that network, then select the wifi connection to share with. If you don't do that, nothing gets through.

    so, assuming your wired connection is LAN1, you go to network and sharing center, right click that, choose properties, then the sharing tab, then enable sharing, and select the wireless adaptor and save. Sorry about forgetting that.

    Their documentation could use some work.
