I've been using connectify for a while to share internate with flatmates (broken router) but it's rubbish. After working 1 night it was using 500MB of memory and 50% of CPU. What is the alternative?

Virtual 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.

Doesn't work for Data Cards. – Shail Apr 20 '14 at 14:18

You can set up an ad hoc wireless network (XP) (Vista/7) using built-in Windows capabilities if the host computer is wired, but having never seriously used one I don't know what the performance is like.

Not good for connecting iPhone/Android devices which do not support ad-hoc networks... :( – Faiz Jan 1 '11 at 8:06
