Turn Your Windows 7 laptop into an access point - for free!

Turn Your Windows 7 laptop into an access point - for free!
Another cool feature of Win7 ... it can become a wifi access point - for free!

Whats this mean for EVDO users? It means you can use an aircard/modem in your laptop and, using the built in wifi adapter you already have ... you become a hotspot for other wifi enabled devices - no router needed. And full security.

How? Windows 7 had the capability to do this, but never offered the software in the final product.
Well, a company has stepped up and made it available.

I've been running this for over 2 months, and it works great. Get the program here: »www.connectify.me/

So hmm ... why pay $$$ for a MiFi device? You now have the same capability with your own laptop.

And although Connectify may have more features, with W7 you don't need it:

Nothing new either.

its called ICS - internet connection sharing . . . .

Its been in XP and Vista. Just gotta be a little tech savvy to configure it.

I agree, though, Connectify does simplify it.

Although, if you dont understand a little about networking, you might feel lost in either.
