MaryFi is a free and easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. With Maryfi, users can wirelessly share any Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Maryfi hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption.

MaryFi is a software router for Windows 7 computers which is meant to turn your PC into a Wi-Fi hotspot so that you can easily share your Internet connection originating from a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. It provides many additional options which compliment the Wi-Fi connection sharing process. For example, unlike MHotSpot, MaryFi enables setting a custom username and password for your Wi-Fi hotspot, and provides a how to use guide (in PDF format). With this easy to use application, you can share your wireless internet connection with laptops, smart phones, music players, and even gaming systems. MaryFi works with both secure and unprotected wireless networks.

To make your computer a wireless hotspot, go to your wireless connection properties by right clicking on it and selecting Status –> Properties –> Sharing (tab). Once done, click check “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection” and select your wireless internet connection from the list. Click OK for the changes to take effect.

  4. This essentially raises the critical issue of wi-fi protection. If a wi-fi network lacks security measure than it leaves an opportunity open for the hacker to target and conduct cyber-attacks.

  10. If you can really afford the estimated service price, ask the agent to go further with the solutions. Making payments is really easy and you can seek reliable payment methods to protect your personal credit card information from the online scammers. http://www.techwarn.com/securepubads-g-doubleclick-net-how-to-remove-it/
