Windows 7: Virtual router software

Virtual router software

Hey guys!

Is there a way I can plug my broadband modem directly into my machine and then use the wifi card + software to function as a router? I am aware of ad-hoc networks, but I am want it to have similar functionality to that of physical router--like being able to perform port forwarding, DHCP, and dynamic DLNA.

Thanks in advanced for the help!

I'm not sure about those specific options, you may need a real router for that but this virtual router software can be used to set up the AdHoc network. :)

MicroTik's RouterOS can be installed to a VM and you can do those tasks.
