Virtual Router Manager 1.0

Easily transform your home or work computer into a WiFi hotspot so that your preferred mobile device can connect wirelessly to the Internet
Seeing how most mobile devices nowadays can connect to the Internet via wireless networks, you might want to turn your home computer into a WiFi hotspot. Virtual Router Manager is an easy to use freeware application designed to convert any Windows workstation into a wireless router.

Easy to use and configure

In plain English, you can turn your computer into a WiFi hotspot and share one of the networks you're connected to, such as the one with Internet access.

It may sound like rocket science to some rookies, but Virtual Router Manager is actually very easy to configure, with just a few details required to successfully set up the wireless hotspot.

Choose connection to share and password

First, you need to pick the network name and the password, which are critical for the security of your new wireless connection. Plus, you must select one shared connection and thus provide Internet access to the connected peers.

One of the good things about Virtual Router Manager is that it also displays the connected peers, along with hostnames, IPs and MAC addresses.

Keeps you connection secure

Using WPA2 encryption and thus requiring a password of at least 8 characters, Virtual Router Manager is indeed a very handy software tool, offering users a simple way to set up a WiFi hotspot with just a few clicks.

Virtual Router Manager works flawlessly on Windows 7 and although it requires administrator privileges to share a specific network, it does an excellent job without even asking for a system reboot.

To end with

Overall, Virtual Router Manager is a great software solution if you wish to set up a wireless hotspot in a matter of minutes, offering only minimum configuration options and thus target all types of users, be they beginners or more experienced. It doesn't include a help manual, but chances are that you don't even need one given the intuitive interface it sports.
