    Windows 7 supports some of the following apps.

    1. LucidLink - You can download the app from the SoftPedia. The app is free and also keeps the home group secure.

    2. AirSnare - This app also helps monitor the Wifi and setup the home network. It is old software and there are not many updates to it.

    3. mHotspot - It is small size app. It sets up the wifi quickly. It is free to use and download. You may find it on tucows or softpedia.

    Apart from this, the new modems being sold these days don't require you to use such software to setup home group. Your broadband provider can help you with this.
