Question Status: Unresolved - 7/10/17
My WiFi Adapter, Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 v22.214.171.124, supports the use of creating hosted networks by "Soft AP," I know so because it has been able to before. But my issue comes that I can no longer able to start the hostednetwork via the usual netsh wlan start hostednetwork
which yields me this error
The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.
but of course this is due to that
netsh wlan show wirelesscapabilities ... Soft AP : Not supported
Hosted network supported : No
This as I know is a result of a version change in the software and I also have been online seeing that others are having similar issues. Nonetheless, I want to be able to force "Soft AP" to be supported and ultimately force "Hosted Network" to be started, as it is within the capabilities of the wifi adapter.
Note: I would use Windows 10's new built in hotspot creator to do so but you can NOT start it without being connected to the internet, which is my goal. Help would be much appreciated by myself and others with this grief.
EDIT: Registry, Powershell, CMD, Windows Utilities or self-modification of driver files, etc. - are my guesses to what the resolution may look like.
