Virtual Wifi Hotspot turns any Windows 7 and Windows 8 computer into a Wifi Hotspot using Wireless hosted network technology.

What is Virtual Wifi Hotspot?

Virtual Wifi Hotspot is a free, open source software based router for PCs running Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012. Using Virtual Wifi Hotspot, users can wirelessly share any internet connection (Wifi, LAN, Cable Modem, Dial-up, Cellular, etc.) with any Wifi device (Laptop, Smart Phone, iPod Touch, iPhone, Android Phone, Zune, Netbook, wireless printer, etc.) These devices connect to Virtual Wifi Hotspot just like any other access point, and the connection is completely secured using WPA2 (the most secure wireless encryption.)


This project is based on codeplex project Virtual Router. Thanks Chris Pietschmann for providing such a good open source software.
