We're excited to announce the release of Omnify Hotspot 3.0. This release adds bandwith control and several other improvements. Please send your comments and suggestions to us, we like to read and use them!

Bandwidth control

Within a network, the bandwidth is shared by all connected devices. If a device uses a lot of bandwidth, such as with torrents or other P2P software, it causes a negative impact on the performance of other devices. With bandwidth control, you can assign a download and upload speed limit for each device, to ensure that they have less interference with each other.

You should see a significantly reduced latency and CPU usage when there is a lot of traffic.

The network driver has been updated and the issues that you've reported have all been fixed.

Omnify Hotspot 2.0

December 4, 2019

We are pleased to announce the release of the Omnify Hotspot 2.0. This new release adds the ability to change between profiles and also improves various areas based on your feedback. Please send your comments and suggestions to us, we like to read and use them!

Profiles

Easily create a new profile in Wi-Fi hotspot & repeater with its own settings and connected devices. Whether you are at home, on a business trip, or visiting friends, you can switch between them at any time without the need to remember their names and passwords. You can also use it to create a guest network in seconds.

Firewall

Within Wi-Fi hotspot & repeater, the internet and network access settings will no longer force the changes on existing devices. You'll need to press Ctrl to override the settings for existing devices. Furthermore, you can now whitelist or blacklist a URL for the advertisement blocker by creating a domains_whitelist and domains_blacklist file in the installation directory and adding the URL on a new line.

Wi-Fi hotspot & repeater starting time

Restarting a hotspot or repeater is no longer waited for if there are no devices connected.

Performance

You should see a significantly reduced latency and CPU usage thanks to a lot of optimizations.

Omnify Hotspot 1.1

June 20, 2019

We are thrilled to announce the release of the Omnify Hotspot 1.1 today. With this release, we've improved various areas based on your feedback. Please send your comments and suggestions to us, we like to read and use them!

Performance

You should see an improved network throughput performance and reduced latency and CPU usage thanks to a lot of additional optimizations.

DHCP server

Omnify Hotspot is now using its own built-in DHCP server instead of using Windows to give out IP addresses. This allows greater control over the assigned IP addresses to ensure that devices keep the same IP address after a reconnect.

Wi-Fi hotspot & repeater starting time

The used network adapters are now remembered to greatly speed up starting a hotspot or repeater after the application starts. In our testing, starting a hotspot or repeater is now typically done within 5 seconds, whereas it could previously take as much as 30 seconds. It's still necessary to detect the correct network adapters after you've changed a network adapter.

What else?

We've added a warning when you're connected to a 5 GHz Wi-Fi network and the issues that you've reported have all been fixed.
