Wow! Turn your Win7 laptop into a wireless router!

Just ran across this little gem! If you have a Windows7 laptop with a wireless adapter you no longer need a router... well that might be an overstatement, but you can turn your laptop into a wifi hotspot in a pinch.

This came in handy recently at a client site where we had only one network drop in the conference room. I plugged in my laptop, and boom everybody else in the room could share the connection over wifi!!

Learn more at Tom's Hardware or just head straight over to Connectify to download the beta.

In my case I had to download the latest WiFi adapter driver from Intel's web site in order to make it work.... but then it was a piece of cake to setup.
