So you’ve just installed Connectify Hotspot… congratulations! Now it’s time to setup your WiFi hotspot and experience the ‘awesomeness’ of turning your PC into a real Wi-Fi hotspot. Here’s a super quick guide to get you setup – video and steps below:

Step 1: On the ‘Settings Tab’ of the Hotspot UI you’ll want to make sure Connectify is setup as wireless hotspot. So click on the ‘Wi-Fi Hotspot’ button.

Step 2: In the ‘Internet to Share’ dropdown select the adapter you wish to share. This adapter should have a working connection to the Internet. You can share any type of Internet connection: Wi-Fi, Ethernet (wired) or even via 4G / LTE dongles. If you set it to ‘Automatic’, then Connectify will share the connection to the Internet regardless of which of your adapters is used by your laptop or PC to connect.

Step 3: Give your hotspot a name (SSID) and password. The hotspot name is the network name that other devices will see and authenticate to using your unique hotspot password. Feel free to have fun while you’re at it and use emojis and Unicode characters in the hotspot name.

Step 4: Be sure to have the ‘Ad blocker’ box checked in order to benefit from our universal ad blocker that saves you bandwidth, time, money and battery life. Double check that you have everything configured correctly. Then you can click the ‘Start Hotspot’ button to begin sharing your Internet connection with your Wi-Fi enabled devices.

That’s all there is to it! With just a few clicks you can get smartphones, tablets, laptops, and any other Wi-Fi enabled devices online with Connectify Hotspot running on your PC. Download Connectify Hotspot for FREE now – no email sign-up necessary!
