Softpedia Editor's Review for WiFi HotSpot Creator
Turn your PC into a mobile hotspot
Written by Bogdan Popa on March 16th, 2012
WiFi HotSpot Creator is an easy to configure software solution designed to turn your very own computer or laptop into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
Extremely useful if you're connected to the Internet through a wired connection and wish to share it via Wi-Fi, WiFi HotSpot Creator comes with only a few configuration options, thus targeting both beginners and those more experienced.
With support for an unlimited number of users, WiFi HotSpot Creator groups all configuration options in a single window, which means the whole setting up process should be completed in no time.
You are thus prompted to provide the name of the network, or SSID, the passphrase, which is actually the password your clients must use to connect to your new wireless network, and the NIC that represents the network connection you use to access the Internet.
Other than that, it's enough to press the “Start” button and you're ready to go, with no other configuration screens or menus.
As you can see, WiFi HotSpot Creator is a pretty simple piece of software and not only that it does what it says so fast, but it's also very friendly with hardware resources on all Windows versions.
Administrator privileges are required when launched on Windows 7, but otherwise it works without a glitch on all Windows workstations.
All in all, WiFi HotSpot Creator is one of the easiest ways to turn your computer into a Wi-Fi router, requiring only minimum configuration and relying on a basic interface that makes everything easy as pie for all types of users.
