Sharing your PC Internet to Android Device (Wifi)

I had been stuck in situations when i was not able to use any 3G or Wifi (Hotspot) internet (Mostly happens in companies).
So in case you want to share your internet connection to your Android devices. There is a very simple yet powerful tool known as Connectify.

YOU CAN ONLY DO THIS ON WINDOWS 7 AND ABOVE ONLY + YOUR PC SHOULD BE  WiFi ENABLED.

Very handy and easy to use tool. Best part you can use it free.
Just visit the site: www.connectify.me and download the application.

1. Install
2. Wifi is ready to be shared :D
3. Find your wifi network you just created on your mobile
4. Start browsing :)

Hope this info will be useful.


Disclaimer: Connectify is a third party tool which i recently came across, and worked very well for me. In case it is not working for you... Sorry cannot help...

X3R0 : Did u ever try to use Adhoc?
Adhoc network is not supported by Android. Hence you cannot connect to it :)
Yes if your computer supports Infrastructure mode and also you are ready to take all the configuration pain of bridging and everything like that.. sure go ahead... I just proposed a tool for convince.
