This software can turn a ThinkPad computer into a Wi-Fi hotspot.
ThinkPad notebook WiFi Router is a software-based WiFi routing utility. It will turn a ThinkPad laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot. When this computer is connected with the Internet some way, that connection could be shared by other devices in the vicinity through this router. This is a solution that helps set up a small local network at short notice. This could be useful in many situations. A quick meeting in a hotel room where just one Ethernet access is available could easily be connected to the ThinkPad and other devices in the room could share the connection through the ThinkPad. It could thus be an ideal solution for a quick demo situation and many other such scenarios. The connection to the ThinkPad could easily be another WiFi connection, a DSL connection or just about anything else.
The interface is simple and intuitive. It would be possible for just about any user to start using the tool very easily in either being a hotspot or connecting to such a hotspot. After the application is downloaded, the software helps make the local Wi-Fi card to become a router. This would help pass along traffic that needs to share the Internet connection. Notebook Wi-Fi Router`s wireless network is just like any other Wi-Fi access point. Security is ensured through a password and communication is encrypted. This could be useful in educational settings too. You do not need completely wired classrooms; just one connection (could be through a hotspot) needs to be available. Students can communicate through the laptop of the teacher/demonstrator and a higher level of interactivity could be achieved. This is a good tool.
