I’ve been digging into google but I can’t find a proper link to guide me. I want to create a wireless hotspot from my hp laptop to connect three devices to it. I have no access to internet. I need the modem to be like a router so any other devices can see it when they scan for WiFi hotspots. It would be like a house group but without internet. Anyone can help me? Thanks in advance
- Enable WiFi and turn off Airplane mode from the control panel.
- Press Windows and type
cmd. Then press CtrlShiftEnter and click
Yesto confirm UAC for the Administrator CMD prompt.
- Type (or copy/paste) to enter
netsh wlan show drivers, listing network drivers. You should see
Hosted network supported : Yes... if not, drivers need to be installed or updated.
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=mynetname key=mypwd, replacing mynetname with your chosen ad hoc network name, and mypwd with your chosen password (8 to 63 characters long).
netsh wlan start hostednetworkto start communication.
There is also a GUI to set up ad hoc networks, which I find takes a bit longer.
Windows 10 hosted networks employ WPA2 security (thanks to @grawity for correction).
