Tutorial Rating: Easy

Step 1: See If Your Network Driver Supports Hosted Networks



1. You'll need to open up CMD (Command Prompt), You can do this by going to start once your start menu open goto all programs > select Accessories > Then select Command Prompt.
2. Once you've your Command Prompt dialog on your screen you're going to type "netsh wlan show drivers" without the quotation marks. Once you've type this command press enter after pressing entering you should be seeing information about your wireless network adapter. You're going to be looking for the line that says "Hosted Network Supported" If you see this line an it says Yes that means your device can be turned into a portable hotspot.However, if it says No that means your current device doesn't support this method however don't get your hopes up if your wireless network adapter is built in I recommend just purchasing a wireless USB adapter that supported the "Hosted Network Feature".

Step 2: Settings Up Our Hotspot

  1. First thing we need to do is install WifiCreator, Which is included in the zip file I uploaded lets being an order for this to work you'll need to install WifiCreator first Double Click on > "WifiCreator setup" icon an then follow the steps on your screen like as you were installing a normal program but leave everything default
  2. Once WifiCreator has installed you can find it by going to Start > WiFi Creator > Click on WiFi Creator once WiFi creator has opened were it says "Internet Connection" You'll need to select your active internet connection below whether it be "Ethernet/USB Tethered or Wireless network" Do Note: If you've one wireless usb adapter that is hosted network supported an you're using that to connect to the internet to your wireless router you'll not be able to turn it into a wireless adapter unless you're disconnected from the internet. After you've selected your "Internet Connection" from the drop-down box you can click "Set up and Start Hotspot"
  3. After your hotspot has started you should be able to see it on any of your device that you can connect to over your WiFi network. I recommend connected to your Hotspot to test an see if you can make a working connection that has internet access. If you've internet access on your test hotspot I recommend that you move onto the next step.

Step 3: Settings Up MyHotspot

  1. After you've installed "MyHotspot" which is included in the Zip folder that you download from Step 2.
  2. After the install has completed you'll be asked to reboot your computer please do this. As it's required.
  3. Once your PC has rebooted Start > "WifiCreator" if not already started after "WifiCreator" has started open up "MyHotSpot"
  4. Once you've opened up "MyHotspot", you'll be asked to Enter your city and country name when first opened
  5. After you've enter your city and country name you'll be asked to enter a username and password, simply just click Login.
  6. After you've successfully logged in You'll be redirected to a "Network Configuration" When you're redirected here you'll need to select your "Internet Connection Device" from the drop-down menu were it says "Network Card With The Internet" after you've select your internet device. Now we need to select our Hotspot wireless adapter from the drop down menu were it says "Network Card To W-LAN Access Point" you can find out the name of your wireless hotspot adapter by going to Control Panel > Underneath Network and Internet click "View Network Status & Task" Once you've got this information select it from the drop-down menu. Then click Next this will take a few minutes to configure the web-server with your hotspot network you've created.
  7. After the configuration part has completed you should now be able to visit

    http://192.168.137.1/ - from your desktop computer. Now when you log into your hotspot you should be redirected to this page.

What's MyHotspot

- MyHotspot billing software is the definitive tool for managing your
public WIFI-HotSpot in internet cafes, schools, hotels, bistros or gaming cafe / game center.

Troubleshooting

- If you've problems with the web-server not starting for MyHotspot this issue could be cause another program is already using this port which is port: 80 for an example if you've "Skype" installed I recommend that you change the incoming port to other available port. Fix: Just change that programs port to another port available if possible

Step 4: Final Steps

To test to make sure everything is working like it should is take another device that has WiFi an connect it to your hotspot you just created once that device is connected open up the web browser when opening up the browser an you get redirected to a login page that says "MyHotSpot" that means you've successfully completed this tutorial

<p>el problema de la version v16 de myhotspot estaba en la base de datos y el archivo de idioma.- modificando el idioma a mi gusto.. y no cargando o evitando de cargar una base de datos antigua realice toda la configuraci&oacute;n manualmente otra vez y listo todo funciona de nuevo. pero debemos si o si firmar el archivo .sys (Error of controller, (ndiskhaz.sys) C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ndiskhaz.sys) usando el CMD en modo administrador e ingresando estos comando: </p><p>bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS</p><p>bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON</p><p>el primero + ENTER y luego el segundo + ENTER y luego reiniciamos todo... entonces pasamos a firmar el controlador .sys (Error of controller, (ndiskhaz.sys) C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ndiskhaz.sys) usando el programa llamado &quot;dseo13b.exe&quot; descargenlo solo desde la web original http://www.ngohq.com/?page=Files&amp;go=cat&amp;dwn_cat_id=34 .... busquen referencias si no saben como usarlo es facil.- les recuerdo que es necesario hacerlo debido a que al instalar la version v16 de myhotspot los adaptadores de red, dejan de funcionar correctamente y los dejaran sin internet. como solucion de emergencia pueden desintalar el servicio directamente desde las propiedades del adaptador de red (emergenci use net adapter propietarie unistall service named: NDISKHAZ..... and recovery conexion to Internet) para recuperar el servicio de internet y buscar los programas que necesiten etc.... la version v16 esta muy buena seguire experimentando haber que pasa.- de todas formas me parece extra&ntilde;o que existiera una ip y mac fuera de mi red wifi que estaba en el rango ip de la compa&ntilde;ia ISP prestadora del servicio de internet ocmo si me estuvieran expiando o tratando de bloquear el hotspot.. en fin, eso exito a todos y disculpen lo loco de todo esto he estado horas sin dormir tratando y solucionando este problema....</p>
<p>Is the website working. Now MyHotspot alwats says there is no internet connection. Tried on 3 different machines. Was working fine before</p>
<p>in directory file of install, exist a file named: arp.... don remember teh name, this file deleted and test ... in me solution, use nortonghost for create a image the windows clean, and reinstall all but used bakup base date... but last month repeat error :( but go on test.. spanish: lo siento mi ingles es como de robot, la instalacion que realizo yo es asi: instalo myhotspot v16 en win7 64bits, luego modifico el registro de windows con estos comandos: </p><p>bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS</p><p>bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON</p><p>para el error de controlador..... Error of controller, (ndiskhaz.sys)</p><p>usando en modo administrador el cmd</p><p>esto soluciona en parte lo del controllador no firmado pero la firma se hace con el software troyano dseo13b.exe en modo administrador..</p>
<p>el mobre del archivo que hacia referencia es: &quot;hotarp&quot; contiene todas las MAC e IP asociadas a nuestro hotspot.- y dentro de ellas enocontre una MAC e IP diferentes al resto... la IP que encontre era de la empresa ISP y creo que ellos bloqueaban mi programa... Myhotspot de alguna manera no estoy seguro pero cada vez que aparezca esa IP del ISP o servicio que brinda internet en mi caso la compa&ntilde;ia &quot;clarochile&quot; sabre que en realidad son ellos los que bloquean el programa myhotspot. de alguna forma.</p>
Idem error for me, dont net... :( v16 myhotspot
Yo trabajo este sistema desde su version numero 9.... Yo le he dado la idea de usar redes sociales para iniciar sesiones al desarrollador del programa de nombre kalil, el no responde preguntas pero escucha ideas, y vi como un a&ntilde;o despues usaba el acceso con redes sociales al sistema y le voy comentando, los problemas que van surgiendo, esta vez estoy igual como el amigo, del come tario, error sin conexion a internet... Y ya usando la version numero 16 del programa, un mes atras, resolvi la instalacion firmando un archivo .sys del programa con un hack para resolver el acceso a internet, pero esta vez ya no funciona. Sigo intentando quitar antivirus y otros programas que pudiesen afectar el uso... Y la version 16 es lejos la mas estable de todas las versiones de myhotspot software... Yo he modificado a tal grado el sistema que transmito radio online usando vlc, y la pagina principal la modifique usando boostrap, con backgroung fade, los idiomas son muy faciles de mejorar....
