Connectify is a program that acts as a router. It was first released in 2009. The program uses the Wi-Fi device on Windows computers as a wireless access point. Once the program is installed, the computer can share the Internet connection with other computers, laptops, and mobile devices. Aside from acting as a router, the software can also be used as a repeater in order to extend the range of the existing router. Gamers can also use Connectify in order to connect Xbox 360s, Playstations, and other game consoles to the Internet without using any cables.
The simple interface of the program makes it easy to use, even for novice computer users. The setup can be done in a few minutes. All that’s needed is a hotspot name, a password, and the Wi-Fi device. Users have the option to enable the program for Internet sharing, too.
Apart from sharing a network connection, users can also share files between devices using the program. With the drag and drop feature, users can drag a file on the connected device and it will be transferred securely.
Other features of the Connectify application include the following:
Scannify service discovery
Fully customizable SSID
Auto Internet selection
Supports 3G and 4G connections
