    why is it that when we use the software in two windows 8 laptops, after maybe 5mins, the connection suddenly shuts down?

    • Nirupam Nirupam says:

      Hi thanks for the reply, you need to check for other bad programs running in your laptops. I’ve tested wlan launcher, it works fine in windows 7 and 8.

    I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but I’m following your instructions precisely, but my window layout for the third step is quite different. When I come to the part where you must modify the sharing properties of my internet connection, and I check both boxes, I don’t get the list that is supposed to be there; and after checking both boxes and pressing OK, the second wireless network doesn’t have internet connection. What am I doing wrong?

    • Nirupam Nirupam says:

      Hi Andrew, I’m extremely sorry for the late response.

      Here, you are about to creating a wifi hotspot, which takes internet from your broadband/wired connection. So that, you can access internet from other wifi devices like mobile.

      Make sure you are going to Ethernet properties -> Properties of your Wired Network.

      And then, in the sharing tab, you need to select the Wireless Adapter[Local Area Connection* 11] that is being created for Hotspot by WLAN Launcher.

      Remember, don’t change the properties of your wireless adapter[Local Area Connection* 11] created by WLAN Launcher, you only need to change properties of your wired network adapter that has name like [Ethernet] of [Local Area Connection]

      With regards.

    hi how can i set clients to access my offline website only ! for example when they type http://www.google.com or other websites they refer to my offline website ! thank you !

    • Nirupam Nirupam says:

      Haha!! Friend you are here about to ask for Hacking.
      You are asking for DNS Poisoning.

      Well, you only need to change the ip address corresponding to the site, in your DNS file.

      If you have a Router, then settings are to be done in router.
      Else, if you have to do it in your personal computer then, just change hosts file located in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc

      With regards

    Hi, I tried to click on start for the WLAN Launcher but nothing’s happening, and when I try to close it 2 error messages popped up. first error, System Core Files are missing, then another error message appears that says, “System Core Files are missing. Invoke or BeginInvoke cannot be called on a control until the window handle has been created.

    Help! I don’t have any idea what it’s telling me, is it probably in regards with the .NETFramework? Thanks

    Hi, i just downloaded the WLAN launcher but i cant start it. Nothing happens when i click on the star button. Thanks

  13. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few men and women are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this during my search for something
    regarding this.
