Editors' Review

+

It's easy to create Wi-Fi hotspots with mHotspot on your WiFi-capable Windows 7 or 8 laptop or PC. This free app turns your Windows machine into a virtual Wi-Fi router that can connect up to ten devices. You can share almost any kind of Internet connection, including LAN, Ethernet, and 3G/4G, with full security. You can also use mHotspot as a repeater to extend your Wi-Fi signal.

Pros

Easy to use: We named our hotspot, set a password and security key, selected an Internet source, and pressed "Start Hotspot." We picked up our phone, scanned for our new hotspot, and logged in; all in a matter of seconds.

Secure connections: mHotspot handles WPA2 PSK, WPS, and WEP password security.

Control: Advanced options include auto network switching, always-on Wi-Fi and scanning, shared content, excluded and allowed devices, and certificates. The mHotspot console displays number of devices connected, data sent and received, and other log data.

Cons

Battery drain: Using your laptop as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot could drain your battery quickly, so plug it in if you can.

Stay safe: Despite strong password security, you should still take all precautions with sharing, LAN access, and other possible security compromises when using mHotspot. Your security is your responsibility.

Bottom Line

We were delighted by how easily mHotspot turned our little old netbook into an impromptu Wi-Fi hotspot, and we can think of plenty of uses, such as study groups, project meetings, club outings, and family gatherings, to name just a few.

"Liked this app though there are some problems"

December 05, 2014

 |  Version: mHotspot 7.7.2

Pros

Ive been looking for an app to share my pc's internet connection to my phone and this is the first app that I found that actually works :)

Cons

My phone often gets disconnected. I tried looking for solution in the manual but the Microsoft Virtual WiFi adapter which should be enabled to solve the problem is already enabled in my pc. Whenever I get disconnected the my phone would say that the password I entered is incorrect even if it's not, so I have to change the password every time this happens

"Tried to change my home page & install a bunch of crap"

November 28, 2014  |  By z00433

 |  Version: mHotspot 7.7.2

Pros

It did set up a wifi hotspot. I was able to connect my blu-ray player to it and get an IP address, once, but was never able to connect to a gateway or transfer data. I suspect this program is just a way to entice you to load a bunch of crap, malware and spyware onto your computer.

Cons

it didn't work. At all. Not even a little

Summary

There are about a dozen programs here at CNET that say they'll turn your PC into a router or a wifi hotspot, but they all seem to be carriers of spyware, malware and crap.
