WinHotSpot WiFi Router lets you share your Internet connection and tether Wi-Fi-equipped devices to your PC by creating a virtual Wi-Fi router in Windows PCs. WinHotSpot Version 2 requires Microsoft .Net 3.5 or better.

Pros

Multiple networks: WinHotSpot can create multiple hotspots for different needs and occasions.

Password protection: You can set a password to limit access to your shared connection.

Share or not: You can choose not to share an Internet connection, creating a virtual private network.

Repair tools: We could access Windows Network Diagnostics and our system's network adapters directly from a compact, attractive, and easy-to-use interface. Autorun, Safe Mode, and Start options can be toggled on and off, too.

Cons

Bloggy text: WinHotSpot 's very good blog-based instructions and documentation were occasionally obscured by the blog's overlapping text, making bits of it hard to read.

Samsung blues: According to WinHotSpot's documentation, the drivers in some Samsung cell phones may cause problems. It's not WinHotSpot's fault, though, just something Samsung users should be aware of, and several options are outlined to help address the potential issues.

Bottom Line

WinHotSpot is an effective and easy-to-use virtual Wi-Fi router for Windows. Whether you use it to bypass your phone's Windows client with a private Wi-Fi connection or share your Internet connection with others by creating a virtual Wi-Fi hotspot, WinHotSpot is an excellent choice.

"Absolute and utter ****"

October 12, 2014

 |  Version: Winhotspot WiFi Router 2.0

Pros

Well I guess it did work for about an hour before it BROKE ITSELF for no reason

Cons

Tried to install three different kinds of malware on my computer. Randomly breaks about every hour and needs restarting the whole PC to work again. Makes the computer slow as hell. Can't detect when wi-fi is turned off. Uninstaller is utter crap and leaves tons of stuff behind.

And the kicker? Yesterday (after barely a week of use) the program somehow managed to spontaneously cripple itself beyond repair and ever since then, it always crashes on startup (and it's not a pretty crash, I'm talking literally an unhandled exception), and even reinstalling the program doesn't fix it.

Summary

To the programmer who wrote this: Go f**k yoursef.
