How to Create a WiFi Hotspot?

Do you know how to make a WiFi hotspot on your computer?
If you have Windows 7 or 8, you can use the following command to easily create a WiFi access point. Of course, this makes sense, if you have cable Internet connected to the PC and it has a WiFi adapter.

  • Open the command line (Start -> In the search box, type “cmd”, and after an icon appears on the top, use the right mouse button to click on it and select “Run as administrator”. A black command line window will appear.
  • Type the following sequence of 3 commands
  • netsh wlan show drivers
  • netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=[MyNewWiFi] key= [password]
  • [MyNewWiFi] – think of the name for your new network
  • [password] – create a password for the network (key)
  • Both the name and the key should be typed without brackets.
  • netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Now your wireless devices should see the new network. Connect.
