How to Turn Your Windows 8 or 10 Laptop into a WIFI Hotspot

 

 

A lot of companies are starting to sell portable 3G routers that you can take with you when you go out, but what happens when you forget, luckily How-To Geek is here to save the day with this neat command line trick.

Creating Your Own Wi-Fi Hotspot Using Connectify

If you keep reading below we’ll show you the command-line method for setting up a hotspot, but if you want a nice GUI application with loads of options and a pretty interface, Connectify has a great application called Hotspot that lets you easily create a Wi-Fi hotspot from your internet connection.

Connectify Hotspot is great if you’re at a hotel that charges per device, or if you’re on a plane and you connect your laptop but don’t want to pay more to connect your phone.

It’s really more of a power user tool, but if you’re looking for a good solution, Hotspot is free to try out, and the basic version is free with some limitations. If you pay for the Pro version you can even use your PC as a Wi-Fi repeater or a wired router, or share a tethered connection off your phone.

Creating Your Own Wi-Fi Hotspot without Software

Press the Windows + R key combination to bring up a run box, type ncpa.cpl and hit enter.

When your network connections open right-click on your Wireless network adapter and select properties from the context menu.

Now switch over to the Sharing tab and allow other devices to use your machines internet by selecting the first checkbox and then unchecking the second before clicking on the OK button.

Now right-click in the bottom left of your screen, to launch an administrative command prompt.

The first thing we need to do is set up the wireless network, this is done using the netsh command like so:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=”How-To Geek” key=”Pa$$w0rd”

Where ssid is the name of your network and key is the password you want users to connect with, its also worth mentioning that the access point is created with WPA2-PSK (AES) encryption.

Now we are ready to start broadcasting our network:

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

image

The last command you will need to know is the show command, it will tell you things like the channel you are on as well as the number of clients connected to your network:

netsh wlan show hostednetwork
