Question

Why is Connectify conflicting with my mobile internet stick?

Hi there,

I am trying to create a WIFI-hotspot from my Windows 7 (64bit) laptop. I inctalled connectify and was succesfully able to create a hotspot while from the WIFI network already set-up in my home. So I was able to determine that a) Connectify worked, and b) my computer had no problems running the software or acting as a hotspot.

The problem occurs when I use my 3G USB Mobile Internet Stick (from Wind Mobile) as the source. Once Connectify is installed, and I click on the "connect" button of my mobile internet application, I get a blue screen error. (I am unsure of exactly what the error message was.)

So, Connectify works, my computer works, and my mobile internet works... But the three won't work together.

Any ideas?

Odd idea.

If you have wifi in your home, why would we do this?

Because I am moving abroad and will be living in an apartment with no internet connection.

Error message may be helpful

I'd also look into your firewall and/or internet security settings (a la Symantec, etc.).

Plus, unless you are moving abroad to a place with the same ISP (Wind), you might encounter a different set of issues regarding connectivity (tethering). YMMV.

Remember that as presented it should not work.

It appears you have both networks active so this should not work.

And if there is no internet there, how would this app help?
