    The reason connectify is not working with most Network Adapters

    The reason connectify is not working with most Network Adapters is because when Microsoft where developing this for Win7 it was going to be a requirement for all Network Card Manufactures to include the the MS Virtual driver, which because the project was shelved, very few Manufactures have included this requirement in the Windows 7 Drivers they have released. So connectify will either have to provided modded drivers for all cards, which is nigh on impossible because of the work involved or find some way to put it in there software and then be able to work with any Win7 NIC or WiFi adapter
