Connectify uses WPA2-PSK right? I didn't see any other options in my PS3... it seems to be Automatic :/ but i will give a try

Hey guys,

is it possible to share your ethernet connection over your wifi devices (like iphone). If so can someone run down the steps as to how this can be done (using connectify version 2)

Thanks

I just installed the newest version, which makes Connectify a "service" instead of a process in task manager. That's what they said anyway.

Issues is, when I boot my PC I see an error that the Connectify service stopped working. The program still works and starts fine, but the message is annoying because it happens each time I boot.

Any solution? Connectify has not gotten back to me for days.

Before upgrading to 7 I was using RALINK's software on XP to make an AP. I haven't had any luck with their software and 7.
Same problem here. Can't seem to get it to work for longer periods even with the latest 2.2 update. Let me know if you figure it out and I'll do the same.

Does connectify work if connected to the internet via a USB data card and not Ethernet?

Connectify can share the connection as long as you are running Win 7 and have a supported wifi card.

After all the messing around that I have done to try to make this program work line you say it can. I can only conclude that the statement you just made can't be further from the truth because this program has failed every single time I've tried it. Sometimes it will work for 4hrs or 6hrs or even sometimes a whole day but that is very rare and none the less it fails and completely stalls and the computer must be rebooted and connectify must be rerun to activate the HotSpot again.

@Max9028: you mean like a 3G air card from verison or sprint or something?

From past discussions with you, I recall you are using 2 wifi adapters which is a configuration that I have not used and I believe is an unusual setup compared to most other users of Connectify. It works for me and allows me to tether my smartphone to my notebook/netbook and create a hotspot to share that connection.
