PostSubject: Creating A Wi-Fi Hotspot   Sat Apr 06, 2013 11:07 am

If you have a Windows 7 laptop with a compatible wireless card you can create a Virtual Wireless Hotspot.
(This is a hidden feature within Windows 7 called Virtual WiFi)

The best part is, this is not an ad-hoc network, and multiple devices can connect!. Android, by default does not support connecting to ad-hoc networks without rooting and hacking, so you basically need an AP (Access Point).

To achieve this, follow these easy steps:
1. First of all, you need Windows 7, nothing prior to Windows has this feature (including Vista).
2. Update your wireless card's drivers. (If the steps below fails, then try updating your firmware as well).

3. Open a command line with admin privileges and run the following command:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyHotspot key=MyPassword
(Replace MyHotspot and MyPassword with your own values!)

4. Now start the adapter by running this command:
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

You will notice that you have a new Wireless adapter in your Network and Sharing Center called "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter"

5. Now simply enable your 3G interface's Internet Connection Sharing (ICS):
* Locate your 3G interface in your Network and Sharing Center
* Right-click on it and select "Properties"
* Click on the "Sharing" tab
* Check the top box called "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection"
* In the "Home networking connection:" drop-down box, select your newly created Wireless Interface.
* Click OK.


6. Connect your PC's 3G.

Viola! You are now running a wireless Hotspot from your PC and you'll be able to connect with multiple devices simultaneously (including Android), who will in turn have internet connectivity via your 3G Dongle in your PC.

This solution is ideal for those of us who don't have great network infrastructure at home/work (e.g. ADSL & WiFi, etc.)

Go ahead, share your free net around the house for all your devices

@james it works perfectly, ive tried it a couple of times and it works without problems, btw ive noticed it doesnt work on all wirelss cards, you need to have a wireless lan card inorder for this setup to work, "i might be wrong" lol, anyway i have 2 wireless cards

a. internal "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG" card

and

b. usb "802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card" card

this setup doesnt work on my internal wireless card, but it works perfectly via usb wireless card

here are some other settings dweeb forgot to get into, that might come in handy

1. to stop hotspot

Code:
netsh wlan stop hostednetwork


2. to disable hotspot

Code:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow


3. to show connected devices

Code:
netsh wlan show hostednetwork


enjoy.

@skurk198 I always seem to assume guys will know a bit more, but there you go.
Thanks for filling in the gaps.
And yes USB WiFi didn't work with me as well.

a. internal Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card

and

b. usb 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card card

this setup doesnt work on my internal wireless card, but it works perfectly via usb wireless card

@james im sure the wireless card should be a lan one, and not just a standard wireless card, than again i might be wrong, lets wait and see what the rest come up with,

@skullbang, yes it is possible, but the fbt should be a vpn fbt method, than you just share the tap adaptor of the vpn, with the wireless hotspot you created, and than you'll have a working fbt wireless hotspot, but i havent tried via the proxy fbt, im not sure if it even is possible, but i know for a fact the vpn fbt method works because ive done and used it alot before,

You need to share the network connection & just use the proxy in the networked pc's.
Tried it on my wired lan with HTPC & FBT running thru proxy setup.

I use the above method to share files or stream videos via wifi from laptop to my Lumia. Creating a hotspot also worked, I believe a laptop has an internal adaptor?
