Turn laptop into Hotspot


If you have ever wanted to turn your laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Feature was hidden by default because of incompatibility with many of the devices and drivers. The feature can be enabled through some simple command 
Open up the Run command with Administrative permissions and run: 
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Hotspot key=passwordhere
Set the network adapter with: netsh wlan start hostednetwork
After running the command, you should notice
“Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter”appear in your network and sharing settings.  
Enable “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection” 
under your Sharing tab, under properties. After you have configured everything, you should 
be allowed to wirelessly connect to your laptop with your mobile devices.
However, this isn’t very useful to the everyday user, but has its future possibilities.
