Virtual Router is a free wireless router app the turns your device into a hotspot for all your devices to connect to.

Having an app like Virtual Router which allows you to be able to connect other devices to your laptop and can be very useful in hotels that charge for their WiFi service per device.

The virtual router app will work on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 12 and Windows 10. It is developed by Runxia Electronics and it does not contain any adware.

Once you have downloaded the app you need to configure the network. The first step is to name the WiFi connection and because it is WPA2 security you need to make a password which is at least 8 characters long. It will give you some options on how to connect and you need to choose between ethernet and WiFi connection.

At this stage make sure that you have checked that the sharing options are correct or else you might have some connecting problems. The sharing option should allow other devices to connect to the internet through this computers internet connection.

Once this has been done you can connect your device to your Laptop like any other wireless network. The name should appear, click on it and put in the password. When you have finished then you can stop the Virtual Router app and if you need it later you can just start it up again when you need it.

The app is very easy to download but there are a few pointers that need to be taken into consideration. The app has quite a bit of junkware which can easily be bypassed if you pay attention. When the program is opened in your browser there will be a pop-up help window. It might not be necessary but it allows you to check if you have the correct drivers on your computer. Try running it first before making any changes.

If you are a person who uses a number of VPNs then once you have downloaded the app you might not be able to log onto some of the VPN networks and it will need to be uninstalled. If you do not have that problem the app will do as it is advertised and you will be able to turn your Windows Laptop into a hotspot wherever it is connected to the internet

Virtual Router Plus is absolutely free but there is a request for donations if you have found the app useful.
