Not all Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 has a built-in Wi-Fi to share internet connection with your computer as a source. Back then, we use connectify to share Windows and Mac network with a full control over the network using a customized username and password.
The connectify computer hotspot is a good as access hotel Wi-Fi or using a cable when you want to share your computer internet connection. However, recently, I stumbled upon connectify alternative, mHotpsot, and I was convinced with the flexibility of the network sharing software for computers.
The mHotspot program works the same way connectify works. It uses your computer network as distribute it as a wireless using software Wi-Fi built-in feature. With mHotspot, it doesn’t matter whether you are using a local network or a public network.
The only requirement to turn your computer into a wireless is to have an internet access on your computer. Whether the network is direct or indirect, from telecommunication or from a public network like school network or hotel network, you can simply turn your PC into a Wi-Fi device when the mHotspot software is installed and customized to share your device network.
After I have spent days using the mHotspot on my PC as a Wi-Fi device, I have decided to write a review on the tool.
