After setting up my connection i made two batch files, one to stop "netsh wlan stop hostednetwork", and one to start "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" with admin rights. Is this the ideal way?
You only need to start it once to create the network connection thing in windows.
If you remove the connection, you need to troubleshoot your main Internet Connection it to re-enable DHCP
thank u for ur tutorial.
i only want to note that even if the hosted network is not supported (old adapters) it's possible via some tricks to configure an ad-hoc network (works on Win7, win8 and Win 8.1).
thank u once more.
I have broadband connection and don't have wifi modem.Can I use this method to share the internet with my mobile(wifi)??
yes. But you need something to connect your computer with wifi
I tried it. I'm dual booting 7 and 8.1. Doesn't work in 8.1.Thought its working in 7.
Anyone from 8.1?
If I have more than one wifi adapters (say, 2 internal PCEe mini cards or one mini card + one use wifi adpater), how can I specify which adapter to use to create a hostednetwork? Looks like the netsh command will only use the "first" adapter.
Well... you could try your luck with the custom ad-hoc wifi networking programs and see if any of them support more than one wifi broadcast card.
It looks like all the 3rd party GUI programs are using netsh command to start a hostednetwork, so if there is no option to specify an adapter to use in netsh command, it will not be possible in those GUI software either.
