I try to share my internet connection from my laptop (win7) via virtual wifi to my android phone (Samsung Gio). In an elevated cmd I enter
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=VWiFi key=xxx keyUsage=persistent netsh wlan start hostednetwork
The android phone connects to
VWifi, but the internet connection is hardly usable on the phone while the internet connection on my laptop is very good at the same time (some Mbps)
What works: I can start WhatsApp, type and receive text messages, so I guess there's no general problem, i.e. config can't be completely wrong - but when I try to send pics or audio or try to receive pics or audio messages then I see from the network monitor on my laptop that the connection doesn't even try to send or receive anything (0 kbps up/down).
What sometimes works: connection to some websites with acceptable speed - but sometimes I don't get a single byte. Also this is not reproducible - the same website sometimes shows up, sometimes android tells my the site was not available.
What never worked so far: connecting to Google Play Store. It always tells me to check my connection and try again.
What I tried so far: I read on problems with IPv6, but no matter if I enable or disable IPv6 in the settings of the virtual Wifi, it doesn't help.
I also read about problems related to static/dynamic IPs, my
netsh interface ip show config tells my that
dchp isn't enabled on my virtual Wifi connection. If I try to enable it by
netsh interface ip set address "myWificonnection" dhcp the android phone won't even connect anymore to the virtual Wifi at all. So there may be a solution here if android would connect with dhcp enabled.
I also read about problems with MAC filters, but this is no router, there's no MAC filter in the virtual Wifi.
When I directly connect to a real WLAN router, everything is fine and working. I have the problems only when trying to get into the internet via the virtual Wifi.
Any ideas what may be configured wrong? Either on laptop or on android? Thanks.
