Turn Windows 10/7/8/ Laptop Into Wifi Hotspot. This shows you how to create a Wifi Hotspot on Windows 10/7/8 using a few commands in command prompt. This concept of Wireless Hosted network was introduced in Windows 7. By using this feature we can easily create a virtual wireless adapter.To do this we only require a CMD(Command Prompt!) with Administrator privileges.

Step 1: Watch Video on How to Create a Wifi or Follow Steps

Step 2: Steps

First Open Command Prompt As Adminstrator.

Type these commands.

1. netsh wlan show drivers - This command shows whether your laptop supports this feature.

2. netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=[YourHotspotName] key= [Password]

3. netsh wlan start hostednetwork - It starts the hotspot you just created.

4. netsh wlan show hostednetwork - Shows the status of your hotspot.

Now we need to share the Wired or Wireless connection. Open Run then enter the "ncpa.cpl" (without quotes) to configure the network settings. Please watch the video.

To Stop It Use This Command

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork - Stops Your Hotspot
