Question about Connectify

1 Answer

I downloaded Connectify to share a Clear mobile connection on my laptop with my pc and Kindle. The PC sees the Connectify network and validates, but no IP address is assigned and so there is no network connectivity. Apparently Connectify does not make the laptop a DHCP server the way a proper router should be. So I went into the PC's properties for IPv4 and hard coded the IP address and subnet, making the laptop the default gateway and the dns server. Under these conditions, I can ping google.com or any other well-known URL so I have basic connectivity and domain name resolution. However, I cannot any website in a browser. Instead, I get a Connectify page, with a message "Sorry, http://google.com does not exist or is unavailable.", and this goes for any website address as well. And, when I open an email client, I get an error message "Connection to server failed, socket error: 10061, error number: 0x800CCC0E". I verified that the laptop that is directly connected to Clear Moble was able to browse at that time. One thing I can do is see and access the resources that are shared between the two machines. I have a Comodo Internet Security, that I disabled to test whether the problem with Internet services would go away. They did not. The Kindle can the Connectify network but cannot connect. It says that there is an incorrect password, but I suspect it's just that it doesn't get an IP address.

You dont say what windows version you have? have you tried creating a network bridge between the phone connection and your wireless ,as you also dont say how you have the mobile connected either, then enable internet sharing on the computer.

Connect your 3g mobile broadband to an xbox360!


Have you ever wonder if you could connect your 3G mobile broadband modem to your xbox360? Well i have done it and it works fine.

What you will need to do is enable network sharing in your laptop/pc

I am using a vista laptop and orange mobile boradband, and this is how i done it!

First of all connect your 3G modem to your laptop/pc as you normaly would. Now get an ethernet cable and plug this into your laptops ethernet port and then into the back of your xbox's ethernet port.

Click on start> connect to> Then you will see "open network and sharing center" Click that. In the next window you will find all networks connected to your laptop/pc. You will see one below your normal internet connection called unidentified network. Click "view staus" Now in this window click and go to properties. now in this window click on the network tab at the top of the window. While now in this window click on enable network sharing via this device. Now go to your xbox360 and try to connect to Xbox live if at the first atempt it did not work test your connection via xbox as it will ask you to do this anyways. You should now be eable to connect to xbox live using your 3G modem.

Hope this helps!

SETTING UP A WIRELESS PRINTER WITHOUT A WIRELESS ROUTER - WINDOWS 7
Install Virtual Router first "Turn any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot."
EditByBSEditor: 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.
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. http://www.brothersoft.com/virtual-router-327895.html Then install Connectify-Me Connectify is an easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption. http://www.connectify.me/ Then reboot computer
