PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Connectify has released version 2.1 of its popular software routing application of the same name, which makes Wi-Fi access easier for people by allowing their Windows 7 computers to become Wi-Fi hotspots.
With Connectify you can share expensive airport Wi-Fi with co-workers, create a hotspot in your ethernet-only hotel or dorm room, even extend the range of your home router.
After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption.
Alexander Gizis, CEO of Connectify stated, "We're excited that this new release of Connectify will bring Wi-Fi Personal Area Networks to many more mobile professionals. It adds support for more wireless devices, more 3G cards, more clients, and more computers-including those running Windows 7 Starter Edition."
This version also boasts full support for XBox 360, Wii, and PS3 gaming as well as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).
"We've been really interested to see how the use of Connectify is evolving from basic Internet connection sharing, into more personal activities such as LAN gaming, and transferring photos from Wi-Fi cameras. We're looking forward to all of the new uses that our users will come up with for this new release," said Alex Gizis, CEO of Connectify.
