    How to share your internet connection to your iOS device wirelessly and turn your computer into a HOTSPOT!

    Thanks to gerald1019 for pointing out Windows 7 Starter Infrastructure Mode compatibility.
    And also to aisan for sharing this tutorial on your thread as well us giving us 3.5 workaround.

    Updates are posted at the end of this post! Screenshot may vary due to version updates!

    Hi, some of you are already familiar with this, pero sa mga hindi share ko lang. I've been using this software Connectify simula pa nung beta pa ito ang it works well, although may pro version na sila ngayon, you can still use the free version and still share your internet connection. The best thing about this software is that di lang iOS devices ang pwede, pati android, laptop, Xbox, basta any device with WiFi capability and WPA2 encryption capability ang pwede mag-connect sa hotspot mo.

    How it works?

    Connectify takes advantage of Windows 7's virtual WiFi adapter and turns your computer into a router or AP as well as a repeater if you have the pro version.

    Requirements

    1. Laptop with WiFi Card, or Desktop with USB WiFi dongle.
    2. Internet connection >>> DSL, Cable, 3G plugin modem
    3. All versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8 Developer & Consumer Preview (Windows XP and Vista Ad-Hoc mode only)
    4. Latest version of Connectify

    NOTE: Connectify relies on the compatibility of your wifi adapter to Microsoft's Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter. If connectify prompts you that it cannot support AP eventhough you are running Windows 7, it means your wifi adapter does not support infrastructure mode.

    Faqs and Common Questions

    1. Bakit di maka-connect PSP ko?

    PSP only supports WPA encryption and not WPA2. Microsoft's Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter only supports WPA2 for encryption and doesn't have the option for an open network without any encryption in infrastructure mode, it is not Connectify's fault. Therefore, PSP is not supported and compatible with any version of Connectify.

    2. Bakit di maka-connect CP ko?

    Please check your cellphone if it supports WPA2 encryption, older Nokia phones with Symbian OS do not support WPA2 might as well use ad-hoc. Android and iOS smartphones supports WPA2 kaya there is no problem with it.

    3. Connected pero "No gateway Reply"

    It means the wifi connection doesn't have an internet connection or it is being blocked by an Anti-Virus or Windows Firewall. Pede rin na mahina ang internet connection mo or wala kang internet na naka share. Always set to "Automatic" if you are using Connectify PRO.

    4. Bakit BSOD pag start ng hotspot?

    Your wifi adapter is conflicting with Microsoft's Virtual WiFi adapter drivers, try to upgrade your wifi adapter's driver to the latest driver for Windows 7. Kung ganun pa rin, ibig sabihin unstable at di supported ng Virtual Wifi ang wifi card mo.

    5. Bakit di maka-connect sa internet yung netbook, laptop...etc

    Try to isolate the problem. Yung netbook or laptop lang ba ang di maka-connect, what about other devices? kuminsan na sa device na problema at hindi yung connectify. Check your internet options, your DNS and always check your Anti-Virus and Firewall settings.

    6. Bakit yung ibang device connected pero yung netbook or laptop lang ang di mka connect sa connectify?

    Check for the error message, baka naman WPA2-TKIP ang encryption na gamit ng device at hindi WPA2-PSK. Kuminsan akala natin automatic na yung encryption pero sometimes Windows has its own way of dealing with connectivity. Set the encryption manually, use WPA2 TKIP-PSK. Try ad-hoc connection and verify connectivity.

    7. Always check if your wifi card is compatible with Microsoft's Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter, if not, you can still use ad-hoc connection instead of infrastructure.

    8. Windows XP and Vista only supports Ad-Hoc Mode and not Infrastructure Mode


    9. Windows 7 and Windows 8 Dev/Consumer/Release Preview supports virtual Wifi.



    Installation Instructions

    Note: Screenshots may be different due to recent update on the software


    1. Download connectify and install it





    Reboot your PC



    After Reboot you will see this pop-up, just click free version



    Fill-out the necessary fields (For free version, you can't remove "Connectify" name on your SSID) it's better than nothing..



    Choose your Internet Source (WiFi, LAN, 3G what ever internet connection you are using)



    For Security choose "Access Point, WPA2 PSK"



    Hit Start!



    You should see this if hotspot is already started



    Connect using your device



    You should be able to see a pop-up from the system tray if a device is connected.




    2. Follow the instructions on the connectify website on how to setup your AP or refer to the screenies above, ganun lang ka simple.
    3. Connect to your AP using your WiFi capable device. How to? para ka lang nag connect sa kahit anong WiFi hotspot or router.
    4. Surf using your device!

    Pros

    -Kung wala kang pambili ng router pero meron ka naman laptop with WiFi capability, pwde mong gawin hotspot yung laptop mo.
    -Kung 3G dongle lang meron ka for internet connection sa laptop mo, pwde mo na i-share ang internet mo.
    -Kung di mo afford ang router at DSL ang connection mo at desktop ang gamit mo, bili ka lang ng WiFi dongle sa CDR-King mas tipid at instant router na PC mo.
    -Best way to share your internet connection kahit saan ka man.
    -SSID support
    -Perosonalized SSID for PRO version
    -supports VPN, openVPN, HSS, and etc

    Cons
    -Needs compatible WiFi cards, meaning yung mga luma di pwde... see list of compatibility sa website nila.
    -Needs Windows 7 or 8 >>> Windows XP and Vista ay Ad-Hoc mode only!
    -Only supports WPA2 encryption so di pwde PSP

    Note: please use product's support site for additional information.

    Download Link:

    3.1


    3.2


    UPDATE: Connectify PRO 3.1 now available for download. OpenVPN, HSS, etc via 3G modem can now be used with the PRO version

    How to patch

    1. Follow the instructions above to install Connectify.

    5. Run the patch as administrator

    Refer to screenshots below













    UPDATE: Connectify 3.2 has been released but you need to like their FB page to download the installer or you can check their website

    Connectify 3.2.0.22174 Release Notes

    New Pro Features:

    - Share over Ethernet: Connectify can now act as a wired Ethernet router. In the ‘Advanced Settings’, select ‘Share Over’, and then select your Ethernet card. In this mode, you can use your Connectify-enabled PC to get Ethernet-based devices onto Wi-Fi or 3G/4G networks.

    - Services under Clients: In the ‘Clients’ tab, you can click to expand Clients, showing the services (web servers, shared drives, etc.) right in the ‘Clients’ tab.  This makes sharing and working together much easier.

    - Apple Bonjour Support:  Pro versions of Connectify will now detect many Bonjour / Rendezvous / mDNS services running on connected clients. Automatically detect iTunes and other compatible application shares on connected computers, and click to launch.

    New Connectify Support Center:

    The many utilities in the ‘Help’ menu have been merged into the Connectify Support Center. This powerful tool helps you troubleshoot any issues, and searches the updated Knowledge Base for related articles (also available online at http://support.connectify.me/forums). If you still can’t find your answer after that, Connectify Pro users can open a support ticket for a quick response, and free users can submit their logs, and while response times are not guaranteed, we appreciate you taking the time to suggest improvements and telling us about issues so we make improvements in future releases.


    User Interface Improvements:

    - ‘Getting Started’ screen, shows users what to enter to get up-and-running quickly.[/li][/list]

    - Some of the labels have been changed for clarification. For example “Wi-Fi” is now “Share Over” [/li][/list]

    - The ‘History’ tab has been merged with the ‘Clients’ tab

    - Names of ‘Internet’ and ‘Share Over’ network adapters has been expanded. We now use the full name for network adapters in the user interface. This should be more informative than the abbreviated “Local Area Network 2” type names that we used in previous releases.[/li][/list]

    Bug Fixes: We’ve continued to work with Microsoft to work around various problems with Windows coming out of hibernation / sleep.  We’ve tested hundreds of combinations of phones, tablets, laptops and applications for compatibility with Connectify.



    Updated post and added patch for version 3.2

    How to Patch

    Note: disable any anti-virus software that you may have before patching and exit connectify.

    Windows 7

    sa laptop mo sir punta ka sa control panel >>> hardware and sound >>> power options tapos select a power plan. Pwede mo piliin ang power saver kung ayaw mo patayin ang laptop mo kahit di mo ginagamit, tapos click mo "change plan settings" set the time on when to "dim the display" and "turn off the display" and "never" sa put the computer to sleep.

    Tapos punta ka sa Device Manager >>> Network Adapter, right click mo yung wireless adapter mo, punta ka sa power management tapos uncheck mo yung "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power". Kasi kakailanganin mo ang wireless adapter mo for connectify.

    Kung alam mo yung keyboard shortcut ng laptop mo on how to turn off the display, pwde na rin yun, alam ko "Fn"+F1 to F12 at arrow keys" yung mga designated function keys ng laptop, like disable sound, turn off display, disable touch pad, brightness control, volume at etc. Check mo sa manual ng laptop.

    I hope that helps....
