I'm trying to set up a ad-hoc wifi network with windows 10, but when I enter the command netsh wlan start hostednetwork, I get the message

The hosted network couldn't be started.
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation

This question suggests that I should use the device manager to enable Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter, but that item does not appear, even when I show hidden items.

Any suggestions? Thanks.


Is hosted network still available in Windows 10? Probably not.
With Windows 10, you should be using this instead:
