This software claims the ability to make your Windows 7 machine a WiFi Access Point with WPA2-Personal (AES) encryption, without the need for router hardware.

Is there a point or a question? Not too sure how one can turn a receiver into a transmitter though with just software.

Sounds like a form of Internet Connection Sharing. Native in XP. Have not look`d to see if it exists in Win7.

Wireless connections have both Rx and Tx ability.

It's just discussion. This feature of Windows 7 is the result of the Microsoft Research Virtual WiFi project http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/red...ts/virtualwifi/

It works well according to Scott Hanselman. http://www.hanselman.com/blog/ConnectifyCr...thWindows7.aspx
