What Is A WiFi Hotspot?

Sharing internet through one device by making it a hotspot to available for all the wifi enabled device. Which device shares internet is called wifi hotspot, it means it is the source of internet access for other devices.

All we know that it is very easy to make a wifi hotspot in an android device. It is inbuilt feature in Android O.S. But what for a Windows PC? Yes, we can do it with the many softwares available in the Internet and market, but you want to do it yourself without any software?

First of all, Run Command Prompt as an administrator.

Type netsh wlan show drivers

If you see, Network Hosted Supported : Yes
Then, It is good to go.

Type command, 
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NameOfwifiHotspot key=yourpassword
where, NameOfwifiHotspot is your Wifi Hotspot Name, which you want to create & yourpassword is your Password for Wifi Hotspot.

This command will make the Wifi Hotspot with above information.

Keep other things same. Click on OK.
