I have 2 pc's. One of them have a broadband internet connection. Now for the second pc I connect it wirelessly to the first through a wireless USB adapter. I set up the the first pc to act as a proxy server and use it for internet sharing to the second. So far so good.
Now I have an android phone which I would also like to connect to internet through the second pc. I know my D-link wireless usb adapter supports
Wireless Hosted Network i.e. it can be a
Hotspot as well as a
I started the hosted network using these commands
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Test key=abcd1234
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
Running these commands shows up the
Microsoft Virtual Wifi Miniport adapter in Network Connections. The hosted network is visible and connectible from the phone.
The problem is I cannot connect to these two wifi connections simultaneously, i.e. If I first connect to the pc wifi network and then start the wireless hosted network then the pc network disconnects. Reverse happens the other way round.
I have read that is is possible to virtualize a physical network adapter into two virtual ones and use them simultaneously. However it is not working in my case. I would like to know what can be the solution ?
When I run the
netsh wlan show drivers command , I get the following output
