In today's time, not even  every home has a laptop or computer, but every member of family also own separate laptops or any other device with internet connection. And everyone want to use internet, prefect if you have a Wi-Fi at home, but what if you have an Ethernet?
For the same purpose, I remember the time when we bought a Ethernet switch to that every laptop connects using a cord, which solved the problem of connection laptops and computer. Luckily, my windows phone also connects to internet just by using a data cable plugged to a system with internet.
But now when I have a iPad, i wanted an another solution as it does not have Ethernet port, through data cable also, it does not connect to Internet. So i was searching on web for some hardwares or softwares  to get Wi-Fi hotspot in my home
 , and found a very awesome, easy and free way to do so, using the softwares Connectify. Thanks to connectify, Now I dont get bore anymore while cooking  ;)
