Connectify no have access to the internet

So your Connectify connection is running (or says so) but when somebody connects to it, it gives them limited or no connectivity, or even the yellow-exclamation mark icon?

Then we need to do the following:

1. Check the firewall problems post. On the computer that is providing the connection.

2. For people that use AVG antivirus, please read this great post.

3. Make sure you are not too far away. I have managed to set up connections that were good up to 20 or more meters away, however this might vary according to the interferences, power of the signal...etc.

4. Check that you have the latest drivers for your WIFI Card. This is very important, otherwise it won't work. You can get help on this, by checking out this post, on how to get to the DEVICE MANAGER and clicking right on the WIFI card name> click update driver.

5. If the connection provider is a Laptop, Windows may be turning off the hotspot device to save power.  This causes the Connectify Connection to stop working after some time. (Check this official FAQ about this issue if you need images to help you)


Go to:
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center
On the left column, click on CHANGE ADAPTER SETTINGS.

You should be in: Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections by now.

Then click on: Microsoft Virtual Miniport Adapter and click on Properties, then click on the 'Configure' button in the 'Networking' tab. From this window, go to the 'Power Management' tab and uncheck 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'.




Still they can't access? Continue reading> Enabling Ad-Hoc mode. The key to Connectify ISSUES.

  1. This program sucks!!! There are too many problems with it. It is completely unreliable and is pretty well worthless! No matter what computer or wifi adapter I use, it stalls it's stops working after a while. No support and no one to stand by there software. I wouldnt want to stand by this faulty poorly made program either. It absolutely sucks. I would be cool though if it actually works but it don't. I have waited for new updates to come out hoping they would just MAYBE fix this crap but nope! The program runs worse now then has ever ran. IT SUCKS!!!

  2. Drops the connection all the time, sometimes refuses to connect altogether. Bleah. You're better off buying a router, in case you're considering actually paying for it.
    Very cool concept but terrible application.

  4. Yeah...worked ok for a little over a week, random disconnects but at least it connected back and worked. Now just randomly not working on one laptop. No updates or changes of any kind on any devices. Phones still connect fine but one laptop getting no internet connection/limited connectivity.
