How to turn your Windows 7/8/10 Laptop into a WiFi Hotspot


Sharing your Windows internet connection via software has traditionally been a tricky business.
There are programs that can help you do it, but they’re often awkward to set up, and prone to complicated security and reliability issues, so most people don’t even try.
But that could all be about to change, thanks to a new Windows 7 feature called Virtual Wi-Fi.

    what should i do?

  2. For the very first time in my life, I really feel confident when going outside with no concern of pitting out. I`ve tried every single clinical deodorant out there with mild good results, however this excessive sweating treatment “shocking jomu plan” (Google it) works for me.
