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.

"Works perfectly well!"

February 13, 2016  |  By Raven Winguard

2016-02-13 05:55:48  |  By Raven Winguard

 |  Version: mHotspot 7.8.4

Pros

1. Can be used even if you are a China Telecom Shanxun subsriber.
2. Doesn't reduce speed, unlike router, mhotspot wifi speed is the same as using internet cable.
3. Convenient, you know if someone leech your wifi. It shows the number of clients connected.
4. Can set a limit of max clients.

Cons

1. Unable to refresh clients in order to identify the gadget connected.
2. China Telecom Shanxun subscribers need to manually set up broadband network first instead of using their software.
3. The help button does not explain how to manually set up broadband network.

Summary

So far it works amazingly! Would give full ratings if only the help button can give tutorial to set up broadband network and the refresh clients button can identify gadgets connected.
