Device Is Connected Through Connectify But Showing No Internet Access I No Internet Access After Connecting Through Connectify


Connectify Hotspot is an easy to use software router for Windows that utilizes your PC’s built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection with friends, co-workers, and mobile devices.

Sometimes your Connectify connection is running  but when somebody connects to it, it gives them limited or no connectivity, or even the yellow-exclamation mark icon ?  warning-general-2

there are two main reason behind this issue which are

1. Outdated version of WiFi card driver.

2. Firewall Protection.

We need to do the following to fix this issue:-

1. Check that you have the latest drivers for your WiFi Card. This is very important, otherwise it won’t work. Update the driver either Device Manager or manually.

Right Click on “My Computer

>>> Click on Manage

Open Device Manager

>>> Go to Network Adapters

>> Right click on your Wireless Driver and click onUpdate Driver Software or open properties of your wireless network driver and  go to driver tab and click on update driver.

You can also update you driver manually, just  find out which driver software you are using then download the latest version either from driver software’s website or your system’s manufacturer website.

>>> Uninstall the older version and Install the latest .

Firewall Protection Issues:-

For Norton:-

  1. Click on the Norton Logo, bottom right, next to the system’s hour/date (if you don’t see it, click the upside pointing arrow next to the hour, you should see a yellow button).
  2. We click on settings> Firewall
  3. Program rules> add (new one)
  4. Find the program (C:\Program Files (x86)\Connectify)
  5. Choose connectifyd.exe, ConnectifyNetServices.exe, and Connectify.exe and set to ALLOW.
  6. Apply settings and close that.

For AVG:-

Disable link scanning in antivirus/malware software The number one cause of this issue is problematic link scanning functions in various antivirus/malware software packages. Try disabling any link scanning components, then restart and check for Internet access.

For example, you can disable AVG’s link scanner by clicking on the AVG icon in the task bar (lower-right hand corner) then selecting “Link Scanner” and unchecking the “Enable AVG Search-Shield” box.

Look for a similar Web “link scanner” or “web shield” component in your antivirus/malware package and temporarily disable it, then restart your computer and check to see if the problem still exists.

Disable then re-enable antivirus software In other cases, simply disabling then re-enabling antivirus software can resolve this issue.

For Comodo:-

1. Right Click on network icon and go to Network and Sharing Centre .

2. U’ll see at least 2 adapters connected. One will be your connection to internet and the other is U’r sharing with connectify. This is usually named as Wireless Network Connection 2 or Microsoft Virtual Wifi or Connectify Network, etc…
3. Open status dialog box by clicking the adapter

4. Go to Properties
5. Simply Uncheck COMODO Internet Security Firewall Driver

6. Press OK

Same thing will apply to most firewalls. You can also try the open ports explanation on the Connectify website.

Don’t allow Windows to turn off  Hotspot to save power:-

Open  Device Manager

Expand the Network Adapters

Right click on your  Wireless Driver

>>>> Properties

>>> Power management

>> Uncheck  ‘Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power’.

  1. I have the same problem. Even I have used your first method to update driver. My laptop has K7 security. Please suggest a suitable solution.
    Hp laptop
    windows 8.1 pro
    64 bit

  2. Spent the whole day un/installing half dozen hotspot prgrams. Almost gave a pass on this fix until I noticed previous router drivers were not from the manufacturers. Up to date but auto installed. After proper driver download and reboot, my android connected before the home tab opened. You put an end to 8 hrs of frustration. Thanks alot!!!

  3. Thanks a lot , I searched the whole vast web for solution on this, but couldn,t find any useful solution but thanks to your shared solution which finally fixed my problem.
    Once again Thanks.
