I need to make a wifi hotspot from my mac when it is connected to the home wifi . I need to give wifi to few temporary people without giving my home wifi password. So I need to create a wifi hotspot from my macbook when it is connected to home wifi, so I can create a new password from my mac and give it to the temporary users.
I tried to share wifi from internet sharing options in macbook , but there is no option to turn on wifi sharing from the wifi connection it has already established .
with windows , this is is possible by following below steps ,
- open cmd as administrator & type, netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifinameyouwant key=12345678 and hit enter
- then type, netsh wlan start hostednetwork , and hit enter
then go to network and sharing settings and you'll see the new network
then go to adapter settings and right click on the wifi adapter , and go to sharing and enable sharing to the temporary network you have created
that's it , but I need a solution in Mac
