  5. Thanks for the tip. Yes, Connectify is far more powerful and feature-rich than the former option, but it is complex to set up.To keep things simple I’ve recommended this.

    The best app for Internet Connection Sharing for turning any PC into a wireless router is “Maryfi”. Everything else is a compromise!
