Free Wireless Routing

Microsoft MVP Chris Pietschmann has written a free open source app that turns your Windows 7 client or Windows Server 2008 R2 box into a wireless access point.

The app is aimed at those times when only one Internet connection is available, but more than one person wants to use it. Maybe there's a conference room or a friend's house with just one Ethernet hookup. Or maybe someone is using a cellular connection and you want to connect as well. With Virtual Router you can safely connect via your friend's machine. The router is password protected, and WPA2 encryption cannot be shut off.
