What is a Virtual Router and Why Connectify Hotspot is the Best Virtual Router?
A virtual router is a software-based system that does everything your hardware router can do (and some things it can’t). A virtual router like Connectify Hotspot can broadcast WiFi right from your PC, so that any other WiFi-enabled device can get online. Connectify Hotspot is far and away the world’s most popular virtual router, because it’s designed with you in mind.
Here are a couple of scenarios you may find familiar:
- You’re stuck in a hotel room with just a wired Ethernet connection and have no way of getting your WiFi devices online.
- You’re on an airplane, in an airport or in a hotel room where Internet is expensive and is paid per device.
- You’re outside your home, on your lawn, and you can’t get your WiFi network’s signal on your mobile devices.
In all these cases, the main goal is to get your devices online quickly and free (no extra cost). A conventional router cannot help you in all cases – e.g. you cannot use it with captive portals, where you have to enter a username and password or click a button on a website in order to access the Internet.
