Out of ALL the alternative "Connectify" equivalents I've tried, this one actually worked.... but its not great by any stretch.

My situation:
Needed a quick, easy solution to act as a "wifi repeater".
Using WindowsXP, and a USB wifi dongle(#1) to establish an internet connection with a very weak signal, I then connected another USB wifi dongle(#2) on a 2nd usb bus to avoid power issues (same computer, of course), then used this software to setup an AD-HOC connection as a "repeater". Im aware this can be done manually quite easily in XP. but i needed something quick, & easy. This worked to my surprise, but not very well. There is NOTHING as far as hardware selection or anything to configure. It would also randomly choose which dongle would receive & which would "repeat". THIS SUCKED! But, I've tried nearly ALL of the alternatives- at least this one worked. Not bad.
