Suppose a situation in which, you are unable to find a wifi to connect all of your devices.. But wait, you have just one “wireless dongle” or wireless usb adapter that lets you connect to the Internet. After reading this post, you will be able to host that connection on a wifi hotspot and share it across different devices.
You will need the following software(s):
- SURF EASY
Connectify is a software that lets you run a wifi hotspot using your laptop’s WIFI.
You can share the connection of a wireless adapter (like idea 3g net setter, reliance net connect +, etc) across any number of devices.
However, this software charges a premium fee if you wish to do that using a wireless data card.
SurfEasy VPN is a software that connects you to a Virtual Private Network and lets you escape the monitoring that your network administrator must be performing.
I hope you are aware of the fact that each and every move of yours is recorded on the Internet.
Here’s the step by step procedure:
1) Download and install SurfEasy (from www.surfeasy.com)
2)Download and install Connectify (from connectify.me)
3) Create an account on Surf Easy in order to operate the VPN software.
4) Connect your laptop to Internet using the wireless medium and then log on Surf Easy.
5) Run connectify and choose the “SurfEASY TAP- WIndows Adapter” tunnel to connect.
And finally, click “Start Hotspot”.
Once you do this, the free version will enable you to run a wifi hotspot for 90 minutes!
I know 90 minutes is less, but this trick could be used in a situation that needs temporary connection of several devices to internet using a single “datacard”.
Alternative Solution:These days,you could also buy a wifi router (that support insertion of 3G SIM). One such device has already been introduced by TATA DOCOMO.
