Windows Computer As WiFi Router To Access Internet On Phone and Other Devices


Now a days the phones are coming equipped with 4G LTE but still in most of the people have not got 3G. There are two main reasons behind that Costly 3G handsets and Costly 3g data plans. But in these two reasons also the costly handset reason is not an issue as most of us now a days have handsets which support 3G and also they are very cheap and come of all segments of  users. Since its 3G and speed is fast hence people tend to browse more and hence it gets used up more and suddenly our usage that was 400 MB on 2G jumps to 1GB on 3G.

But most of us now a days have laptops which are equipped with 3G sticks through which we use internet on them. Now some of us may think that we use our laptop for almost the whole day then why can’t we use its internet on our phone. And today I have got the answer to that yes you can use its internet on your phone using Connectify Pro, the software is paid but its really worth the money however you can also use the free version with some limitations.

Access Internet On Phone Using Laptop WiFi Internet

This software will use the internet running on your laptop and then create a Wifi hotspot using the Wifi of your laptop. Now you can connect your phone to this wifi hotspot of your laptop and start browsing the internet on your phone using the internet of your laptop. Also the Wifi hotspot created by this tool is really secure to avoid its misuse so that only the person who knows the password to it can connect to it.


After you will download and install the software there will an icon created for the software in the system tray. You can access the software from this icon. Once you will click on this icon the above screen will open. As you can see that the application has four tabs Settings, Clients, Services and History.

In the last tab i.e. you can check what all devices connected to your hotspot in case you are not able to keep a tab during work so that you can know if some used your hotspot without your knowledge.
