I set up a AP using the following command:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=DotA key=pass keyUsage=persistent
I am eager to know what topology (star, mesh etc.) does it use, so I may use it optimally as per my needs.
According to the MSDN article About the Wireless Hosted Network, "Hosted Network" creates a WiFi network where the computer acts as an AP ("SoftAP" in that article). The topology is therefore the same as in all managed WiFi networks (ones that use an AP) – a star with the hosting computer (the AP) in its center.
