mHotspot is a handy piece of software that enables you to convert your laptop into a virtual WiFi router. It helps you create a secure WiFi hotspot by sharing the default Internet connection of your Windows laptop.

mHotspot is very easy-to-use, so you won’t have to present any knowledge about networking or sharing Internet connections in order to be able to properly use it. Its intuitive and straightforward interface makes sure that creating a WiFi hotspot gets to be a simple task which can be performed with ease by anyone, including beginners. There are no intricate settings or complicated menus. Except for setting the maximum number of clients, you can only fiddle with some basic interface customization options (selecting your favorite interface skin).

As a minor disadvantage, it works only with laptops that have Windows 7 or Windows 8 installed. Older Windows operating systems are not supported. Also, it might require a system restart in order to properly install a driver needed for the optimum functioning of the program.

In conclusion, mHotspot is a nice tool that lets you create a WiFi hotspot in a really easy way, and it’s also completely free. Therefore I can only recommend it with all my heart.
