Connectify brings you different benefits. It can turn your PC into a free Wifi hotspot. Many people use this software successfully, but on the contrary, many people also have difficulty right when they start using it and encounter common mistakes such as "UPnP is not running" and "Error Staring Hotspot" right when you start the utility.
HOW TO TROUBLESHOOT "ERROR STARING HOTSPOT"
Step 1: Check the Wifi card of your computer to see if it is activated. If not, activate it immediately.
Step 2 : On the toolbar, click Tools -->Control Panel -->Network Connections.
You must ensure that Wireless Network Connection is activated (do not turn into grey).
Note: The Wifi card can be disabled because of small changes on your laptop or with a Wifi hotspot or by pressing a key combination from the keyboard of your computer.
If Wireless Network Connection is activated, but Connectify Hotspot still displays similar mistakes. You must create a command to inform Administrator by:
Clicking the Start Menu ( on the left corner of the screen), type " Command Prompt " as the keyword in the Search Programs and files section. Right click on the result found, then select "Run as Administrator"
Import commands like "netsh wlan show hostednetwork" --> “netsh wlan stop hostednetwork” --> “netsh wlan start hostednetwork”.
Among them, the 2nd and 3rd commands can create a virtual Wifi network during the working process so that Connectify Hotspot can run accurately.
