To find out whether your device/driver supports this feature, execute the following command in cmd windows,


netsh wlan show drivers
And look for the the support of hosted network,

    “virtual router plus could not be started. Supported hardware may not have been found.”
    if it was the driver or sharing problem,i’m sure i coudn’t use it at all.but sometimes it works and sometimes it shows me the error
    can someone help me what is the problem?

    This is a pretty useful tool. I tried other programs but they don’t work with WIndows 8. Will sure share this neat software on my site. Thanks again.

    BTW, is there a limit on the number of connected devices?

    I was wondering if you can change the encryotion on the virtual router because I was trying to get the hotspot to work with my ds but still won’t work with the regular or the virtual router

    this is awesome! Works like a charm once the miniwifi port is configured. Only drawback I found was a list of devices connected to this hotspot. If that is provided, that would be awesome!

    Hello, the app seems wonderful and works perfectly well on my computer. My iPhone detects the wifi and connects to it, but even though it does so, my iphone is constantly loading and not working (for example, it keeps loading when I go into my inbox without getting any result). Anyone knows a solution for this? Thanks a lot for your help.

    My internet provider used to sell me different hotspot tickets for the various gadgets. With VRP I need just one ticket and all my gadgets are connected. Thanks for the savings. THUMPS UP!
