Share your Broadband Internet over WIFI like a Virtual Router

Sometimes you might don't have access to wireless internet at office or somewhere but you have cabled internet and you need to access internet from your mobile phone, then this solution will help you.
You can easily share the Wired internet into Wireless network mode by using this software.
This software act as a Virtual Wireless Router and use your laptop or pc wireless card to share the broadband internet wirelessly.

Virtual Router  By CodPlex is useful software that helped me to for this purpose, now how to do this:

1. Download Virtual Router from here .
2. Install VirtualRouter on your Windows 7/Vista or XP.
3. Run the software from start menu.
4. In Network Name(SSID) field put a name for your WiFi network. ex "My_Hotspot"
5. In Password field , determine a password for your WiFi, it should be at least 8 characters.
6. Choose your wired internet source at Shared Connection section.
7. Click Start Virtual Router.
8. Now from your mobile,tablet or laptop search for wireless networks, you will find your network, in my case "My_Hotspot" then click connect. you will be asked for password, enter the chosen password in the virtual router.
9.Done!

Troubleshoot:
You might can connect to the hotspot by your mobile but don't have internet access then double check below steps:
1.Be sure the ip configuration for your mobile,tablet or laptop that want to connect internet via wifi set to DHCP and don't use manual IP configuration.
2.Be sure that your Antivirus/Firewall is not stopping the software from sharing the internet. MOST OF TIME THIS IS THE PROBLEM! So you need to declare a new rule for your firewall to let this software work freely or disable the firewall.

    1. Yes, I'm sharing on External USB WIFI Card (TP-Link TL-WN822N) but i didn't tried on other USB cards. Probably if windows can recognize your WiFi card then there should not be any problem with that. you're welcome ;) If you find the content of this blog useful please follow us on FB or G+ or twitter and share with your friends :) Thanks
