Suppose you have two laptops and only one internet connection cable then getting internet on both the laptops is not so easy (you can make use of Windows Ad Hoc Network) but setting ad hoc is not an easy task. Now, Maryfi is a software for Windows 7 computers which allows users to easily create Wifi hotspots. The hotspots can be used for connecting mobile phones, gaming consoles or other laptops.
You have to first download and install this free tool on your computer. Open a program and select the name and password of the connection you wish to create. By clicking the “Start Hotspot” button the application utilizes your computers built-in Wifi card to wirelessly share any available internet connection. The connection is kept safe with a password using a WPA-2 encryption.
Before you can start using the hotspot connection using Maryfi, you need to make some adjustments with your internet connection. Just click on the “view network connections to setup internet sharing” button and you are directly sent to the page where you can view all the connections available on your computer. Just right click on the connection you wish to share and enable the internet connection sharing for that connection. Once this is done, click on the “start hotspot” button and then wait till the network status for Maryfi shows “connected”. Once this is done, you can access the internet using any other device by connecting to this connection.
Maryfi is compatible with only Windows 7. The software is available for free and can be downloaded from the link below.
