Easily Share WiFi Internet Connection in Windows

It happens at times, when one need to share WiFi Internet connection across multiple devices. It could be another laptop, tablet or a mobile device. To easily share WiFi Internet connection, a WiFi Hotspot should be in place. The WiFi Hotspot helps enabling the Internet connection sharing. That in turn let other devices get connected to the WiFi Hotspot with or without a WiFi access password.

Instead of making changes in your current network settings or creating an adhoc network in Windows, one can easily share WiFi Internet connection with a third party WiFi Hotspot software. One such software that I personally use and recommend is mHotspot. It works amazingly well with no-non sense features.
