Make Your Notebook a WiFi Hotspot with Connectify [How To]

I was whiling away my time listening to one song over and over again when a dear friend of mine asked me a question to which i didn’t know the answer. That instant i dropped everything (not literally) and made my awesome ASUS machine a WiFi Hotspot.

11 Steps to Make your Notebook a WiFi hotspot

This is how i did it.

  1. I first downloaded Connectify and of course chose the free version, but you can always pick the paid one as well.
  2. Next I installed it
  3. It asked for a reboot
  4. I did a reboot
  5. Connectify asked me to put in a Hotspot Name, so I let the program deal with it…
  6. The next line asked me for a password and i chose an all numeric code which basically means 0-9 numbers.
  7. The other things were already pre-selected so i let it all be.
  8. Then i hit the Start Hotspot button.
  9. I next scanned my tablet’s Wi-Fi and it showed me “connectify-me” connection.
  10. I tapped it and entered the password which i had previously entered into the software….
  11. I double checked the browsing on my phone and saw it was giving an amazing connection speed and quick browsing as well.

Hope these steps help you out some day.
Now things to remember are, I use a laptop, Windows 7 but have tried it on Windows 8 and 8.1 machines as well… and my tablet is Nexus 7 2013 but I have also tested it on Galaxy S II.
Good Luck!
