Today I want to talk about an application which turns your Windows 7 laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot, Maryfi is a free program for Windows 7 that allows us to turn our PC into a wireless router.
For example, we connect our PC to a wired network and we want to share that connection with another device that has wifi (another PC, a tablet, a cell phone, etc.).. We just have to install Maryfi, execute it, we put a name and password to the network and start the Hotspot.
Maryfi can easily act as a repeater for your home wifi router, extending its range. Connect it with your home network, apply sharing settings to your home network, enter your desired Wi-Fi name and password, and click Start Hotspot. Devices will automatically connect to the Internet. In addition, if you run Maryfi outside your home with these settings, any devices that need to be bound to a specific network (wireless printers) will work flawlessly with no additional configuration no matter where you are!
Even without an active Internet connection, you can still run a Maryfi hotspot. This provides wireless access to shared folders or drives on your network as well as the ability to play LAN games with others.
