CREATE WI-FI HOTSPOT USING CMD

                             
Hello friends !!! Have you ever thought using your pc's Fast Internet connection onto your phone or making it share-able to use on other computers.  WIFI hot spot is the method that allows you to do so. There are many software's which allows you to create hot spot on computer but they are either costly or vulnerable to computer security(they may contain viruses or malwares) .In this post i am going to  explain the simplest possible way to create WiFi hot spot on computer.
You just have to follow the steps given below and you will create your own hot spot network software in no time .
                             


                         <=== METHOD - 1 ===>  



                    USING  COMMAND PROMPT



Step 1 :    click on start menu and type " cmd " without quotes. Now  command prompt  will appear 
                
 on start screen. Right click on cmd and select " RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR" .
           
Note :  It is must that you run cmd as administration   privilege otherwise it will show error in next steps. 
  After clicking , computer will ask for permission select   "yes" then the command prompt screen will appear.
                         
                      


Step 2 :    NOW to check whether  your computer has drivers to support LAN or not, type
" netsh wlan show drivers " without quotes .  It will show the output like the image.
 In the output Hosted network supported :Yes means that your compute supports hosted networks. Verify this.                


  
 If the result is "YES"  then move further else download & install the latest wlan driver for your computer then continue. 

Step 3 :  Type " cls " without quotes ,this will clear the screen .


Step 4 :   Now  to create the hotspot network  type following code in cmd  :

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Hotspotname   key=password
                replace hotspotname with your desired ssid  and password with your password(at least 8 character) for the network and hit enter . for example we are creating our hosted network                   
like this : 
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Geeks4yu key=ANISALAM
                         
             
     
  Now your hot spot network is created but currently it is offline. 

Step 5 :  To start the Hot spot you just created type 

                   netsh wlan start hostednetwork 
                  and hit enter key


Step 6 :  now you will find your hot spot in all wifi enabled devices near you computer(dependent range). connect to it by inputting you password chosen during creation and enjoy !!  
now you can close command prompt if you want.

Step 7 :    To check hot spot status type  following code  and hit enter                                                                            
netsh wlan show hostednetwork





    Step 8 :  To stop the Hot spot type following code and hit enter                                                           
netsh wlan stop hostednetwork


Step 9 :  Again if you want to start hot spot just run cmd as administrator and type                          
                    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
       and hit enter . To stop repeat step 8.

 Step 10 : in case  you can't access Internet make sure your LAN connection is sharable 
if not do this : 
    > > To share your Internet connection on this hotspot go to the Network and sharing center and click on Change adapter setting.



            >>  Here right click on the Connection that you use to connect to Internet and select "properties"
            >>  In properties go to "Sharing" tab and check the box "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" and select the network connection name that is used by your hotspot.(For this check the Network Connection Window and look for Connection which says Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter). And save it. Now your Internet connection is shared.  




 Step 11 :  that's it ....... enjoy your own hot spot network without any software  easily.

<=== METHOD - 2 ===>

                                                

                          USING NOTEPAD


If you think above steps are too technical or you are not familiar with command prompt , here is the second method to create hotspot. steps are :

 Step 1 :    hit  "window key + R " or goto start menu and select " RUN" . In Run box type                                "  NOTEPAD  ".
 Step 2 :   Open Notepad, copy and paste below code into it.
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=HOTSPOTNAME key=PASSWORD
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
  • Change the SSID value colored with red with the name of your hotspot.
  • Change the key value colored with red security code required to authenticate users.     
Step 3 :  Save this file as HOTSPOT.bat Make sure you have given the extension as " .bat "
                 

Step 4 : Create another notepad file and paste the below code into it.
netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
Save this file as Stopwifi.bat This file is to stop our Wi-Fi Hotspot.
So from now when ever you want to start the Wi-Fi Hotspot, simply right click the HOTSPOT.bat file and RUN IT as administration , your Wi-Fi hotspot will start to broadcast.
 As soon as you are done you can double click the StopWifi.bat file and your broadcast will be stopped.
