Click Start, type CMD, right-click the Cmd.exe link and select ’Run as Administrator’. Now type the following command: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyNet key=MyPassword
and press [Enter]. Replace ’MyNet’ with the name you’d like to use for your custom network, and ’MyPassword’ with a password that’s a little harder to guess. Still at the command line, type netsh wlan start hostednetwork
and press [Enter] to fire up the virtual adapter. Now click Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Centre > Change Adapter Settings, right-click your internet connection and select Properties. Click the Sharing tab, check ’Allow other network users to connect…’, choose your virtual Wi-Fi adaptor – and that’s it. Any nearby Wi-Fi enabled device should see a new network appear with the SSID you defined above. They’ll be able to connect to it using your password, and can then immediately share your internet connection.
