Virtual Router Wifi Hotspot for Windows 7

Filed under: Windows 7 — Rahul Patel @ 9:58 am

Microsoft’s CodePlex has released Virtual Router that turns a Windows 7 Computer into a Wifi Hotspot using Windows 7’s Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.

Virtuual Router turns any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot using Windows 7’s Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.

The Wireless Network create/shared with Virtual Router uses WPA2 Encryption, and there is not way to turn off that encryption. This is actually a feature of the Wireless Hosted Network API’s built into Windows 7 and 2008 R2 to ensure the best security possible.

You can give your “virtual” wireless network any name you want, and also set the password to anything. Just make sure the password is at least 8 characters.

  1. Hello!

    I installed VR on a windows-7 PC and it doesn’t appear to work. Are there any additional configurations I need to make besides the one’s in your screenshot?

    Thanks,
    Matt
