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.

"So far, no good. Can't get the darn thing to cooperate!"

October 19, 2014  |  By GriznMe

 |  Version: mHotspot 7.6

Pros

Very quick & easy to install. Minimum of fuss, and even a dinosaur like me can figure it out. Everything about it is easy to figure out.

Cons

Well, after it's installed...It just kinda sits there. You keep hoping it'll DO something, but...Nope.

Summary

I've had this software for all of two hours, so maybe I haven't given it a fair shake. I'm going to give it an overnighter, and try it again tomorrow. I can't really see how it'll change things, but hey, weirder things have happened! It took all of ten minutes for this software to actually "hook-up" with my device that was two feet away, and two hours later, there's still no internet connection...So there ya go.

Summary

Thank you very much for giving this marvellous software for free. I have been trying all the official windows guidelines to make my laptop a wifi hotspot. Not surprisingly they didn't work. Other third-party software costed up to hundred dollars. But this software, thanks to its developers came free and it works simply good. No I'm sharing my wireless USB data card's data with two mobiles in my family. We are saving on our mobile bills. Thanks again for this software.
