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

I signed up for the Connectify Beta, where is my download link?
Your download link will be delivered shortly to the e-mail address you provided in the form.

Where is Connectify? I installed it, but I don’t see it.
Connectify is running in the Notification Tray next to the system clock. It might not be visisble, because Windows 7 has cleaned up the Notification Tray to hide the icons that you don’t frequently use. If you click on the small white triangle it will show all of the icons, including the Connectify radio wave icon (circled in this picture).
To ensure that Connectify stays visible, select “Customize”. Find Connectify in the list of programs and select “Show icons and notifications”.

Now what? How do I share my connection?

To get started, click on the Connectify logo in the Notification Tray.
1. Select the Internet connection you wish to share
2. Choose a name for your new wireless network
3. Choose a wireless passphrase
4. Press the Internet Sharing button to turn on your wireless network
5. Now, from your other devices, you can see your wireless network. Choose to join it, and enter the wireless passphrase to connect.

What versions of Windows does Connectify run on?
Connectify runs on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 r2, both in either 32 or 64 bits.

Does it run on Windows Vista or Windows XP?
Sorry, not at this time. Connectify depends on improvements made in Windows 7 to operate. Frankly, Windows 7 is such a big improvement, that we suggest you’re better off upgrading than waiting for us to get all this working on an older version of Windows.

Do my friends need Windows 7 in order to connect to my Connectify hotspot?
Absolutely not, any WiFi enabled device can connect to your network without any additional configuration or software.

Can I still join a WiFi network while my computer is acting as a WiFi Hotspot?
Yes, absolutely. You can join a WiFi network and run the Connectify Hotspot on the same WiFi card, at the same time. The Connectify Hotspot is always on the same channel as the WiFi network that you join, but WiFi networks can share the same channel.

Will it work with my cellular Wireless Internet service?
It should, we have tested successfully with several. Please tell us if it doesn’t.

Is this just WiFi’s ad hoc mode?
No, Connectify is a real WiFi Access Point running on your computer. Any device that can connect to a regular access point, can connect to a Connectify Hotspot, with no special setup or software required.

What kind of security does it have? Is it encrypted?

Yes, your wireless hotspot is encrypted with WPA2-Personal (AES) encryption. Your security is as strong as the Passphrase that you select.

How do I turn off encryption?
Encryption is required with Connectify, we take your safety and security seriously.

Am I allowed to share my Internet?
This depends on the terms of service of your Internet Service Provider. Many have terms against reselling the connections, however sharing with friends, family and your other computers is generally fine.

It doesn’t work for me! Help!
Send us an email at support@connectify.me and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

How can I help spread the word about Connectify?
Funny you asked! We have conveniently provided links to several popular social media sites.
