MO Virtual Router Portable
If you are using Windows 8, you might notice that creating a computer-to-computer (ad-hoc) wireless network is no longer an easy task, as it was in older versions of Windows. Therefore, sharing the Internet connection with Wi-Fi enabled devices requires a third party application, such as MO Virtual Router Portable.
Designed with simplicity in mind, this application can easily turn a PC or a laptop into a virtual access point, allowing other devices to connect to the Internet via a shared connection.
Ease of use is one of its advantages and the interface makes no difference. All the necessary configuration options are comprised in a single window, where you can enter the name of the new network, as well as the password that other devices must use in order to connect to the Wi-Fi connection.
Pressing the 'Create Wi-Fi Point' is enough for the wireless network to be created and activated. Any Wi-Fi enabled device, such as phones, tablets, laptops etc., can detect it and connect to the Internet via the new hotspot. The 'Stop Wi-Fi' button is a fast method of disabling the access point, whenever you want to deactivate the connection for other devices.
MO Virtual Router Portable comes in handy for any user who accesses the Internet through a wired connection and wants to share it via Wi-Fi. Since the configuration is minimal, it targets any user type, beginners or advanced ones.
In addition to this, it does not require installation and therefore, you can run it directly from a removable drive, without having the system registry affected in any way.
Under Windows 8, ad-hoc networks can also be created using the command prompt, but beginner users might find this method rather difficult. MO Virtual Router Portable provides a more intuitive alternative for creating a virtual Wi-Fi router and sharing the Internet connection with other devices.
