Connectify is one of the first tools that uses the power of mesh networking. The idea behind mesh networks is that every pc/laptop can become a wi-fi hotspot, ensuring not only a steady internet connection but also allow integration of different devices without having to set up anything.

Once installed, Connectify sits in your system tray. To start a hotspot, just fill in your preferred Wi-Fi name and your pass phrase, and then click the large button to turn the hotspot on. Other devices will immediately detect your created hotspot and they can join in using the password that you supplied.

You can also use Connectify to start your home network to share files and printers without using a router.


  • Create a wi-fi hotspot from your pc/laptop in an instant.
  • Created hotspots require WPA passphrases for better security.
  • Connect and sync your wi-fi enabled devices without using cords, blue tooth, or wireless router.
  • Works with Windows 7 (only).
