Did you know with Connectify you can extend the range of your Wi-Fi network? With Connectify, your PC acts as a repeater to extend your network coverage area. This feature works well for someone looking to surf the web in their backyard or basement, far away from their network router.
First, you must download Connectify. Once you have Connectify running, you should see STEP #1. To begin using your Hotspot as a Repeater for another Wi-Fi network, see STEP #2. You go to the Connectify Menu, select “Easy Setup” and then “Clone Wi-Fi Settings.”
Once you click “Clone Wi-Fi settings,” STEP #3 will pop up on your screen and ask you which Wi-Fi network you’d like to clone. Say I want to use my home network, “Connectify-Kibbles” in my backyard. I would select “Connectify Kibbles” in the drop down menu and click “OK.”
NOTE: Only networks you’ve previously joined will show up on this list.
Once you click “OK,” the “Connectify Pro: Wi-FI Cloning” pop-up will disappear, and you will see STEP #4. Connectify automatically added “Connectify-Kibbles” to my Hotspot Name, as well as my password. As you can see, the Hotspot also automatically restarted, and began repeating my home network so I can access Connectify in my backyard, far away from my office where my router is located.
After STEP #4, you’ll be good to go! It’s really that easy!
If you are unable to click “Clone Wi-Fi Settings,” you are running Connectify LITE. Using Connectify as a repeater is an exclusive Connectify PRO feature.
