What a phenomenal app. Worked right away on my Acer netbook. 

Now, to see if it allows me to use the internet on my ZuneHD without having to mess with my school's wireless login that the ZuneHD has issues with!

Nice write-up, Mark. I'm anxious to kick Connectify's tires myself, but it didn't play nice with my notebook's WiFi. One of their support reps told me they "seem to having issues with some Intel wireless cards," but assured me they're working on a solution.

Could this also be used to setup a wireless network between 2 laptops to transfer files instead of using a usb key?

You can use Connectify the same way you'd use any other wireless network router, so if you set up shared folders with read/write access and the appropriate user settings on both laptops, you could use Connectify - but you could also set up an Ad-Hoc wireless connection as well.

Connectify uses WPA2 encryption (which uses the very strong AES encryption algorithm), which matches the strongest encryption standard available in wireless networking. Thus, as long as the PCs that need to connect with Connectify support WPA2, you'll be able to connect. Keep in mind that you're still running 802.11b or very early 802.11g hardware which don't support WPA2 on client PCs, you'll either need to update the drivers or replace the adapters on those PCs.
