Create your Hotspot using command prompt without any software

All you might have used Hotspot from your smartphones with the flick of a button. But when it comes to windows you will install software to make an hotspot. But it is not necessary to start your hotspot with such kind of software. You can start it with a simple technique using the windows command prompt and it is better that the software.

Create your Hotspot using command prompt without any software:

  • First click on start and search for "cmd".
  • Now right-click on it and click Run as Administrator.

  • Type in the command prompt without quotes "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=yourHotspotName key=password"
  • Here modify the "yourHotspotName" with the name you like to set for your hostspot and change the "password" and make it a complex one.
  • Now it's time to start your hotspot. Type "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" without quotes.
  • Navigate to Network and Sharing center in your control panel.

  • Now click your connection (which has internet access) and click on properties.
  • Now on the sharing tab, check the option "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection" and select your hotspot name from the drop down list.
  • All the devices connected to your computer will receive internet connection.
  • To see the status of your connection type "netsh wlan show hostednetwork".
  • To stop your hotspot type "netsh wlan stop hostednetwork"
  • That's it. Now you can start and stop your hotspot anytime you want.

If you receive any errors during these commands, then type "netsh wlan show drivers" and see if there is a line like "Hosted network supported : Yes", if no then hotspot is not supported by your system.
