Connectify Problems

Connectify did not start. It showed this error:

error:The wireless device reported an error while starting the hotspot. Please try reconnecting/reenabling your wireless device or reboot and try again. 

Maybe the computer that is setting up the connection has something blocked. This is how I fixed it, NOTE: it works after you do it, however you might need to repeat it every time. Not sure why it doesn't work sometimes. Might be a bug.

Anyhow, this is how I fixed it, again, don't know why, but it worked:

1. Try restarting... you never know...

2. Try going to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections, right click Wireless Network Connection 2, disable it, then try to start Connectify hotspot again (from the Connectify interface, press the 'Start Hotspot' button).  **this fix also works, when after waking up computer, Connectify gives the cannot start hotspot error, but before it was working**

error 2: Yellow warning on connected clients connection, cannot access internet through connectify.

This was the hardest one to figure out, and it worked like a charm.

1. Try going to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections, right click the MAIN WIFI connection that you want to share, it should be called: Wireless Network Connection. 
  • Right-click>properties>configure button> ADVANCED tab
  • Check for Ad-hoc and make sure its enabled. Or any similar. 
2. Try going to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections, right click Wireless Network Connection 2
  • Right-click>properties> look for IPv4 on the below list. 
  • Check that is set to automatically... all that. 
  • Apply, save, close and restart the hotspot.
  • See if your connected collegues are able to access now.

  2. You're welcome, any questions, just let me know!

  3. It certainly works like a charm. My warmest thanks!

  4. 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!!!
