How to Connect your Windows PC to Internet via Wi-Fi

With Connectify Hotspot installed on your PC laptop, you can easily share Internet from your wired Ethernet, 3G, or 4G LTE USB stick as Wi-Fi, so your Windows PC and other devices can get online, no matter where you are.

Start a Connectify Hotspot

Step 1: Purchase Connectify Hotspot PRO or MAX from the Connectify website. Note: While there is a free trial version of Connectify Hotspot, sharing 3G/4G or Ethernet connections as Wi-Fi is only available in the PRO and MAX versions.

Step 2: Choose one of the 3 options to set up Connectify Hotspot.

  • Wi-Fi Hotspot: Create a Wi-Fi hotspot and share your Internet connection via Wi-Fi.
  • Wired Router: Share your Internet connection over wired Ethernet.
  • Wi-Fi Repeater: Extend the range of a Wi-Fi network

Step 3: Make sure your 3G or 4G device or Ethernet adapter is selected from the ‘Internet to Share’ dropdown. Icons next to each adapter tell you what kind of Internet connection you’re selecting.

Step 4: Give your hotspot a name (SSID) and password. The hotspot name is the network name that other devices will see and connect to using your unique password. Your Connectify Hotspot is a real, working hotspot that you use just like any other wireless network.

Optional: Choose the 'Ad Blocker' option as this feature will save you a lot of data. Learn more about the universal ad blocker in Connectify Hotspot.

Step 5: Click the ‘Start Hotspot’ button to begin sharing your Internet connection with your other devices.

Connect your Windows PC to Connectify via Wi-Fi

Step 1: From your Windows desktop, find the Wi-Fi settings icon from the notification bar and make sure that the Wi-Fi toggle is turned on.

Step 2: Once the list of available Wi-Fi networks populates, you should see your Connectify Hotspot's SSID broadcasting your 3G, 4G or Ethernet network as Wi-Fi. Connect to that network by clicking it.

Step 3: Make sure you put a check on Connect Automatically box if you don't want to retype the Connectify Wi-Fi password every time you're connecting to the hotspot then click Connect.

Step 4: You will be prompted for the password that you gave your Connectify Hotspot. Enter your password to connect.
