INTRODUCING: Connectify Hotspot v3.5!
Connectify Hotspot 3.5 is completely focused on quality and improving the user experience. The most common error reported by users worldwide were “Hosted Network unavailable” errors. Finding the root cause of these problems was the primary focus of this release.
After weeks of testing, we believe we found the cause: bugs in the relationship between networking and power management in Microsoft Windows. With this fix in Connectify Hotspot 3.5, even more users will finally enjoy a smooth and painless Connectify Hotspot experience.

Connectify 188.8.131.5232 Release Notes:
- New Power Management Software to Fix Hosted Network Errors: Based on our work with Microsoft, it appears that we have found and worked around the underlying Windows bugs that cause the dreaded “Hosted Network” error messages when a computer comes out of sleep or hibernation. This release includes a significant rework of Connectify Hotspot’s handling of power management in order to avoid such issues.
- Enhanced Local Access Firewall Controls: We moved the handling of the Connectify Firewall Settings into our driver in the Windows kernel. This means that this traffic is how handled much faster, with less CPU usage.
- Recognize More AntiVirus Software: Connectify’s Troubleshooter now recognizes Avast, Avira, and VIPRE security software packages, and points users to support articles on how to properly configure them, in case of technical issues.
