    Great idea, but sadly didn’t work for me. Once loaded, I tried to run it but it came back with “Virtual Router could not be started!” with no further explanation. :(

  • Hi, It also did not work for me and it always says virtual router could not be started

    Give a try to Connectify ;)

    “Turn your Windows 7 laptop into a WiFi hotspot to share the Internet with friends, co-workers, and mobile devices.”

    Btw, guys, both of these apps do work for my compie but not stable (sometimes Internet disappears). Don’t know why.

    I suggest you to use native vendor’s utility (e.g. TP-Link Wireless Utility). If your WiFi adapter supports SoftAP feature, of cource.

    Okay..What I want to do is something slightly different. Let me know if anyone has come across a solution for this (Software or hardware.) I have a webserver on my linux laptop. What I want to do is (Even if there is no Internet Connection) setup a LAN connection through my laptop wireless infrastructure; I.E. My laptop can access the linux laptop webserver through intra-net IP address without the need for Internet; Also, it’s important to state, I do not want to have any plugged in wireless router. I usually take these two laptops on business trip and I must connect from one laptop to another without relying on an internet connection.

    I use a USB dongle for connecting to internet. Yesterday I downloaded and installed Connectify software. It did not work with USB dongle internet, but it worked fine with the WIFI hotspot in my house.

    Today I installed the Virtual Router on my laptop, but I am facing the same issue i.e. the USB dongle internet cannot be shared with other devices through my laptop. Any suggestions?
