How to turn windows 8 PC into Wifi Hotspot

How to turn windows 8 PC into Wifi Hotspot

In this article I’II explain you  “How you turn your PC into Wifi hotspot through command prompt”.

If you find yourself with a modem but no router, you can share one computer’s connection to other devices with a few commands. The wireless connection can be shared and used by other computers, tablets and phones. You’ll need to ensure that your computer has a wired and wireless network connection, or a data and Wifi connection. If you are not sure don’t worry I’II show you the command for this too .

To know whether you device Supports Hosted Network

  1. Launch a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges and enter the following command  
    netsh wlan show drivers
Hosted Network
Hosted Network

If Hosted network supported than you can move on to the further steps…


  • Using Windows’ Command Prompt, you can create a virtual network and share it to provide internet access to other devices:

    Launch a Command Prompt with Administrator privileges and enter the following command:

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=P@ssw0rd key=CodeHotfix

    Change the SSID value to choose a different name if you want, and use “key” to set a password. This will create a virtual network adapter.

  • Start the new virtual adapter by running the following command:
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
  • Go to the Control Panel and open up the Network and Sharing Center. You can now spot your new virtual adapter listed there . Click the “Local Area Connection” which share his network with your new Adapter. In my case I’m using Ethernet connection.
  • Click the Properties button in the window that appears.
  • Head to the Sharing tab and then check the “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection” box.
  • Use the drop down menu to select the virtual network adapter you’ve created.
  • Click Apply and OK.
  • You can stop the Network Hosting with this command
    netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

That’s all you can now use you own  created Wifi.

Enjoy..!!
