Turn your Windows 7 laptop into a Wi-Fi Hotspot with Connectify

Connectify turns your laptop into a personal wireless hotspot. Windows makes this possible, but makes you disconnect from Wi-Fi and connect with a wired connection to do it. Connectify actually lets you run a Wi-Fi hotspot while you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, so you don’t have to get that network cable out.

How to Use Connectify to make Laptop Wi-Fi Hotspot :
Step 1 :
Download Connectify from here and install it
Step 2 :
Make sure that you Laptops’s Wi-Fi is turned on.
Step 3 :
Start the Easy Setup Wizard inside Connectify.
Step 4 :
You can skip the welcome screen by clicking next, now it will ask you to choose your Wi-Fi Device, don’t change it, let is be default and continue configuring.
Step 5 :
Now it will ask for a  Network Name. Fill the Name i.e the name of your Wi-Fi Access Point, if anyone searches then they can see this name in their Wi-Fi Device to connect to you. Its your SSID. Fill in whatever you like to.
Step 6 :
Next will ask you to choose your Hotspot Mode. Choose Access Point as the default mode there.
Step 7 :
It will be asking you for a password. Insert a password which on sharing with other will let them connect you to your laptop's wi-fi hotspot.
Step 8 :
In the Shared Connection Area, Choose the connection which you by default use on your laptop to get online or the one you are using at that instance.
Step 9 :
