Wireless connections are more widespread than they are supposed to be. However, there are chances when you may come to know that you are frustrated using a wired connection and tend to use it as a wireless. You often visit from place to place and always look for a free hotspot service but in excitement, you forget about the privacy to take and implement. Most of the people while switching to a new device for high and extended speed think to complete the process of new extender setup at a public place just because they are getting the free service of Internet.
However, you don’t need to do so. You can create your own WiFi hotspot by using a virtual router and a computer or laptop. Here, we will tell you how to get the job done. Read on.
When are you supposed to use it?
If you want to share the private Internet connection you own, you have to use a third-party tool namely Virtual Router Plus. It requires your device (computer or a laptop) to be connected to your wired connection properly. Follow the steps below:
- Install antivirus security on your device and firewall to network.
- Build a strong password for about 15-16 digits, filled with alphabets, digits and numbers (avoid the use of dictionary words).
- Set a data limit of guest access for those members or friends who often visit you.
- After the process of installation, register your device IP address on mywifiext.

The Windows 8’s SmartScreen feature will kick in and also block the program all the unrelated program coming at background that consumes a large amount of data. If you need further information related to your network, then go further with the “run anyway” button to get started.
Now, a pop-up screen will appear asking you to enter the name for ad-hoc-network that is soon being created with a secure password. Further, use the drop-down menu in order to select the list of the available connections that are supposed to be shared. After you have gone through with all, hit the icon virtual router plus.
The connection is now able to use similar to additional WiFi connection. Your smart devices will automatically detect the list of available networks; here you just need to provide a password to the network in order to get connected. But beware of hackers.
