Connectify hotspot : no camping wthout it!

Positive Comment by tombalm
about Connectify Hotspot 2 days ago

We travel with caravan in Europe 4 months a year (yes our hair is grey).
On every camping ground Connectify runs on the laptop with a extra antenna to pick up the weak camping WIFI.
Thanks to Connectify we have around the caravan a perfect hotspot for our cell phones and tablets!

While this seems to be the only WORKING tool to share a WiFi connection to date (I've tried them all), it still gives me a BSOD about every couple of hours. This is on Windows 10, and using the (paid) Max version.

This is not free. It has a 3 day trial, and you must provide your credit card up front.


What’s The Inside Scoop?

about Connectify Hotspot Feb 2013

Business Intelligence, automation, reporting software, and process relativity are some terms, which are associated with each other. On an enterprise level, Business Intelligence often offers substantial help to streamline the process. The process includes data management and importantly using the tool for expedited results. However, at times few tools are tough to learn and are often neglected or not used as they should be used. This results in loss of productivity and impaired performance. On the other hand, an intuitive deployment of the tool understanding all the requirements and modes of functioning helps to gain vital insight and a perfectly streamlined process.

It is important to note that Connectify allows users to connect to the internet through Wireless while sharing the connection to another device through Wireless. This has not been seen in alternatives (sharing a LAN connection, which Connectify can do as well).
