Turn PC Into Virtual WiFi Hotspot

             WiFi HotSpot Creator is a handy tool to create a WiFi hotspot and share your internet connection, so WiFi enabled devices like laptops, smart phones, and tablets, can connect to internet via PC. It auto-enables the ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) option of your current connection to seamlessly turn your PC into a WiFi hotspot; you don’t have to go through the tiresome process of opening Network & Sharing Center.

Just launch the tool, enter the connection name and passphrase to create your WiFi hotspot. Moreover, it creates WPA/WPA2 PSK based secured connection, allowing you to connect those WiFi enabled devices which cannot connect with wireless ad-hoc network.

To share your internet connection, first enter the name of WiFi hotspot and then enter a minimum 8-digit password in the Passphrase field. Now from NIC drop down menu, select the internet connection which you want to share.
