There are various devices you can use to connect your PC to other computers or devices and browse the internet at the same time but not every one can afford these devices. So today, I will be sharing with you a free tool you can use to turn your PC to a Wi-Fi Hotspot so you can connect your PC to other wireless devices such as your music players, iPad, smart phones, PSP, or other devices or computers with a wireless spot, so they can access the Internet too, free. To do this, we are going to need this free software called Connectify.
With Connectify, you can make your PC a Wi-Fi hotspot and share your internet connection with other wireless devices around you, maybe at home, class room or at office. This means, if you have a laptop with a wireless function and a modem to connect it to the internet, you can share that your internet connection with other people around you, and they will be able to browse the internet too using the connection from your own PC, without having to pay anyone else. This is also secure as it is WPA2 Encryption passworded. Note that you can do this either for free or you charge anyone trying to use this – it’s up to you.

2. Install and run Connectify Installer.
3. After successful installation, your Connectify will be running and can be found on the taskbar.
4. Fill up the necessary fields. You can use password to restrict un-authorized access to your Wi-Fi Hotspot. You can also name the Internet and Hotspot name.
5. Then click Start Hotspot.
And you are done. As you can see from the last image, I have connected the Connectify software with my Multilinks AnyData Modem. I can now be sharing my Internet connection with any wireless device that has my password. You can then start to share your internet connection with friends, roommates, or clients.
