Virtual Router Project turn any Windows 7 PC into a Wireless Access Point / Hot Spot.
The Virtual Router application was designed to be a small tool that will turn any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot using Windows 7s Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.
The Wireless Network create/shared with Virtual Router uses WPA2 Encryption, and there is not way to turn off that encryption. This is actually a feature of the Wireless Hosted Network APIs built into Windows 7 and 2008 R2 to ensure the best security possible.
You can give your "virtual" wireless network any name you want, and also set the password to anything. Just make sure the password is at least 8 characters.
From Author: Over the last week some of you may have heard about Connectify. It's an application that unleashes the "Virtual WiFi" and Wireless Hosted Network features of Windows 7 to turn a PC into a Wireless Access Point or Hot Spot. Well, I looked into what it would take to build such an app, and it really wasn't that difficult since Windows 7 has all the API's built in to do it. After some time of looking things up and referencing the "Wireless Hosted Network" C++ sample within the WIndows 7 SDK, I now have a nice working version of the application to release. I'm calling this project "Virtual Router" since it essentially allows you to host a software based wireless router from your laptop or other PC with a Wifi card. Oh, and did I mention that this is FREE and OPEN SOURCE!
Please Note: You will need to uninstall any previous versions before installing a new version.
