WiFi Repeater Mode (MAX)

Hotspot MAX is the only virtual router software that gives you a real WiFi Repeater so you can extend the range of your home or office WiFi. Your main WiFi connection sees all the devices connected to your Hotspot so you can play console games, share files, and stream content across the network.

Bridging Mode (MAX)

With Bridging Mode enabled, your Hotspot MAX connects devices on your Hotspot directly back to the network you’re broadcasting. This powerful feature gives you the power to share across your home network and ensures compatibility with many game consoles like Playstation and Xbox.

Custom IP and DHCP Controls (MAX)

By default Connectify Hotspot automatically chooses an available IP so you don’t have to worry about configuration. For power users that want more control over their hotspot, Custom IP and DHCP controls ensure that particular devices connect on a user-specified IP range.

Upgrade to Hotspot PRO or MAX

When you purchase Connectify Hotspot PRO or MAX, you can choose between a perpetual, “Lifetime” license which entitles you to all future updates and new features (at your chosen tier) or a version specific 2015 license which includes only complimentary fixes to the current version.
