How do I connect my iPad or Android tablet to the Internet via 3G, 4G / LTE with Connectify?

With Connectify Hotspot PRO / MAX installed on your PC laptop, you can easily share Internet from wired Ethernet, or your 3G or 4G / LTE USB stick as Wi-Fi, so that iPads, Android tablets and all of your other mobile devices can get online. 

Start a Connectify Hotspot

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

Step 2: Make sure your 3G or 4G / LTE mobile broadband 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 3: 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.

Step 4: Click the ‘Start Hotspot’ button to begin sharing your 3G, 4G / LTE or Ethernet Internet connection with your iPad, Android tablet and other WiFi-enabled devices.

Connect your iPad to the Connectify Hotspot

Step 1: From the iPad’s Home screen, tap the Settings widget, then tap Networks.
Step 2: Tap the Wi-Fi button and then slide the on/off slider to the ‘on’ position.
Step 3: Once the list of available Wi-Fi networks populates, you should see your Connectify Hotspot’s SSID broadcasting your 3G or 4G network. Connect to that network by tapping it.

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

There you have it, folks! Getting your iPad onto LTE and other mobile broadband networks is as easy as pie with Connectify Hotspot PRO / MAX. To get started, visit:
