WMWifiRouter was released earlier this month, however, the release within the past 24 hours has finally combined stability and functionality into the offering.
The application simplifies enabling Windows Mobile devices to function as a Wi-Fi access point, giving internet to any other device with Wi-Fi capabilities. Windows Mobile 5 AKU 3 added the functionality, but it was hidden; Microsoft only supports Bluetooth and USB connections with the Internet Connection Sharing subsystem in Windows Mobile currently.
The latest version, 0.90 stabalizes an important feature; iPhone and iPod touch support. With WMWifiRouter, a user can provide 3G access to the device. This enables owners of Apple’s early MIDs to have true mobile broadband functionality, as speeds multiples of that of the older GSM/EDGE data networks.
Many downplayed PhoneNews.com’s previous reporting about adding 3G to iPhone via this methodology, before iPhone was released. However, hundreds of iPhone and iPod touch users have asked us for a working solution since, and we can confirm WMWifiRouter accomplishes this.
In addition to the latest updates, WMWifiRouter now supports WPA encryption, providing internet to a dedicated router, and full functionality while in standby mode.
