Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Q: Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Hey guys,

So, what i'm trying to do is create a wifi hotspot using my computer. In other words, turning my computer into a router. I'm wanting to do this so i can use my ipod at home instead of only when i'm around other wifi hotspots.

My computer is running off of a wired router, so that i can play online on my PS3 as well. I was told wifi doesn't work well with Ps3's normally so i just bought a wired router. So, the mainline internet cord is plugged into a wired router and then another line runs into my computer.

For some reason, after i make an adhoc connection, the computer is not sending the required information to the iPod so that it connects to the internet.

I've tried entering in the information into the Static tab in my ipod as well, and still only get Local Connection instead of Local and Internet.

This is what my connection looks like through the router using ipconfig /all:

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Cromsy,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. You are connected to the router fine with your computer, but that tells us nothing about the ipod because wireless is off (but that's not the whole story either - you need something extra to do what you want). The following article should tell you what you need and how to do it: How to Connect iPod Touch to Windows 7 Ad-hoc Wireless Network. Although it says Windows 7, there are procedures for Vista as well (and the software will work with Vista).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

So, there are many articles out there that will show you how to use cmd prompt to create a wifi hotspot (eg: this article Internet Connection Sharing - Create WiFi HotSpot)

However, is there anyway to do this with TWO separate wifi adapters? That is, use one adapter to connect to your router and the other to act as the router? Some articles seem to indicate this is the ideal setup but no one seems to specify how to control which wifi adapter is used to create the wifi hostpot in command prompt.

Thanks for any help.

If I can get the basics to work, the next step is to try to integrate a VPN so that I can basically use my PC as a VPN router (but with no physical ethernet connection).

From the looks of it the Intel WiMax driver doesn't have an updated Windows WHQL driver. Because of this it also doesn't have the Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport adaptor which is what the adaptor uses to create the virtual access point.

I can't see which version of WiMax adaptor you are using but you might try Windows update for an updated driver for this adaptor.

When you install the updated WHQL driver you will see the virtual driver in the Device Manager and on the Network Adaptors page.

After that it should be easy to set up the access point using commands or connectify software.

Hey,

I've got a Nintendo DS, and I'd like to get it hooked on the internet.
So I bought a wifi usb stick so I can create a hotspot, we've got Wireless Internet at home.. But my DS won't get trough the WPA2 encryption.
Since I'm not pretty experienced with network and creating hotspots, this step is a problem for me.. I've been trying for months now, but I can't figure it out.

Can anybody help me creating a Wifi hotspot? I need to have it open (unsecured) or with a WEP password.. it just needs to give my Nintendo DS access to the Internet..
I've got the following wifi stick:

And I run Windows 7 (And Ubuntu, help for Ubuntu would be appreciated (since Ubuntu is my main OS), but how to do it in Windows 7 is enough )

I have created a wifi hotspot on my work laptop (hp probook 640 g1) I started the hosted network and in the network and sharing page I could see the ssid 'hotSpot1' under the wireless network connection 2 (WNC2) icon. I also could see the ssid in the currently connected to part of the available networks page when selecting the bottom right hand corner bars. i.e.

currently connected to:

workcompany.com internet access

hotspot1 No internet access

However when I share the wireless network connection (WNC) that the workcompany.com is connected to with hotspot1. The ssid is changed to workcompany.com. so both WNC and WNC2 ssid's are displaying workcompany.com.

I have also lost the ssid in the 'currently connected to' section as well it now displays:

currently connected to:

workcompany.com internet access

When I look for hotspot1 from my mobile device I cannot find it. Anybody got any clues. Please help.

p.s. the workcompany.com internet is a domain (if it helps)

I've wasted SO many hours on this this week. Staying in a hotel in Europe with only wired Wifi. I was able to create a Virtual hotspot one night, but then I restarted my computer and I can't get it to work again.

Here is what I did:

1) made sure no other virtual Network adaptor programs were running (I had Hamachi LogMeIn on this laptop too. I exited it and killed the process). Also made sure I wasn't currently connected to wifi occupying the adaptor.
2) Download and install Virtual Router Manager 1.0 from https://virtualrouter.codeplex.com/
3) Run it and tell it to set up a virtual network with the name [SSID NAME] and password [password]
(this app basically just automates the Windows Shell commands that creates a virtual network adaptor).
4) Right click on the Ethernet adaptor that has the working net connection and choose Properties -> Sharing and tell it to use the Virtual Network Wireless adaptor created in step #3
5) Right click on The Virtual network adaptor created in step #3 and UN-check support for IpV6. This handy tip got it to work in the first place.

So it worked ONE night. ? But I?ve repeated this steps 5 times now, and NOTHING. It doesn?t even create the wireless network for others to see. I?ve rebooted a few times too.

See this screenshot of what my adaptors look like:

Hi there,

I'd tried with Ad-hoc networks but for some reason other devices couldn't connect to the network I created. I'm just wondering what I could've done wrong!

Ok, you only require one wireless NIC in order to create a hosted wireless network, you can receive and send the wireless through a single NIC. You can use either one for this but you don't need both.

You can use the command prompt to set this up but using the connectify software might be a better choice if you want to connect on start up. You can also do this with a virtual router, take your pick.

Connectify For Windows 8

This one shows the manual set up using the command prompt.

Or you can install a virtual router.

Hello,

I have recently bought a new pci wifi lan card (Ralink rt61 turbo) and have plugged in and installed drivers. Initially the drivers the company I bought it from told me to install didn't work, but after some googling found the correct drivers and downloaded from Ralinks website. However these didn't work either.

When using the Ralink wireless utility it says that the card is disconnected, however in device manage it is both connect and the correct drivers installed and everything is perfectly fine.

I ignored the wireless utility and hoped that windows 7 would still be able to use the wireless card as past experiences have shown to be true. This case however I get nothing. Windows 7 says that the wireless card is experiencing problems, it doesn't show any of the routers that should be shown.

I have been looking around a lot and there have been several drivers that should have worked and they haven't.

I would have thought that the antenna is broken or the card doesn't work however when I use it with ubuntu instead of windows 7 it works perfectly fine without any hassle, so the card is definitely working.

Any advice that anyone can give on how to resolve this would be very welcome.

Thanks

I'm having a problem that's been on and off with my.wifi for a while. I have a Yoga 2 Pro and the WiFi card seems to disappear completely and I can't get it back without removing all the batteries and leaving it a while. It's not like it needs a driver update, it totally disappears as if it's not even installed and won't show up in any OS or even under the "rfkill list command". It appears to be completely failing. Thing is I've swapped it out and it seems to be some part of the operation that mounts it that isn't working. I notice that it installs into the power board and not the motherboard. Would swapping this fix it? Does anyone have any ideas?

Ok here's my problem. I have a berklin wifi reciver on top of my house in a cantenna focusing at a satellite dish. It's pointed at my cousens house 3/4 th's a mile away. I have permission to use their internet and it's encrypted.
But since the wifi reciver card hooks up to my computer usb. what I want to know is. How can I hook up my netgear 54mbps router up to my computer so I can brodcast a wifi signal in my house.

My Laptop was connected to my WIFI and everything was ok. I left my laptop on for a few hours and when i came back to get on my WIFI did not work. It says that it can not identify the network and there is no internet access. I have tried almost everything i can find to try and fix this issue but nothing seems to work. I did a factory reset hoping that it would fix the issue but sadly it did not. I can use the hotspot on my phone to connect to the internet. when i run the troubleshooting program it says "The default gateway is not available". I use this laptop for work and i need to be able to connect to our WIFI. This is costing me money every day that i dont have access.

I haven't used AVG in years so I am guessing go into AVG firewall rules and look for Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) and allow any/any for inbound/outbound traffic.

I use an Ethernet cable and as such I followed this guide (How To Turn Your Windows 8.1 Device Into A WiFi Access Point) to obtain WiFi for the rest of my other devices (Smartphone, iPad, Nintendo 3DS etc.)

It used to work but for whatever reason my other devices can no longer detect my WiFi HotSpot T_T Or if they do and I enter the right password, I'll just get 'Unable to join' for whatever reason... help anyone? I also noticed the 'Sent' part of my Private Network is stuck at that particular value or increases really slowly...

A:Help, WiFi hotspot not working T_T

First make sure your cable is good, they are fairly easy to break.

Ever since switching to Windows 10, I haven't been able to start WiFi hotspot

When I try wth My WIFI Router
it gives the message:

"Fail to start your WiFi hotspot 1002".

"Computer's wireless card doesn't support WiFi hotspot creation".

I also tried other WiFi softwares, and also via Command Prompt to set a hostnetwork

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid="name_here" key="password_here"

It gives the message

The hosted network mode has been set to allow.
The SSID of the hosted network has been successfully changed.
The user key passphrase of the hosted network has been successfully changed.Click to expand...

But when I start the hostednetwork via

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

It gives the message

The hosted network couldn't be started.
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.Click to expand...
I have updated all the drivers, am running Lenovo Z51-70 laptop and all the drivers on the site has been updated for Windows 10.

Hi,


I've been using a hotspot wifi with my Windows 7 computer for several months now. The hotspot requires login, the redirect is automatic. This morning I tried to connect and it says This site can?t be reached www.hotspots.de took too long to respond. I tried connecting with my phone, everything is working fine. I've tried connecting my computer to another (slower and weaker signal) hotspot which does not require login in, works fine.

I've done a troubleshoot on the network, it came out with the following message:

resource (www.hotspots.de) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts. The remote computer isn't responding to connections on port 433, possibly due to firewall or security policy settings, or because it might be temporarily unavailable.
Windows couldn't find any problems with the firewall on your computer.

I'm using avast. I tried switching off all the shields, made no difference.
Also, if it is the antivirus that is blocking my connection, why is it only blocking this particular hotspot, while I can still connect to other much more inferior one and browse the web?
I work at home using the internet so it's imperative for me to have a good connection. I might be using a lot of data, and it's a public hotspot, so it made me suspect that they might have blocked me from that particular hotspot? Is it even a technical possibility?


Please help!

Arthur

A:BSOD while using Wifi Hotspot and LAN

Hiya and welcome to SevenForums!

Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r.
Install the latest updates from Windows Update.

Do the exact same steps for chkdsk /r but instead of typing in sfc /scannow type chkdsk /r.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I am unable to start Wifi Hotspot on my Windows 10 Pro 64bit PC. I have the latest Lenovo Z51-70 laptop. I tried using CMD prompt, external softwares like OsToto Hotspot, MyPublic Wifi, My WIFI Router. My laptop used to get Wifi hotspot activated before I re-installed Windows 10 again.

Additionally I don't have Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter listed in the Device Manager under Network Adapter.

I have Internet Connection Sharing enabled for my Ethernet connection.


STEPS/TROUBLESHOOTING

1. Re-installing Windows didn't help.

2. Error messages I got in the softwares I used.
a) OSToto Hotspot: "The wireless card is not found 1. Check if the wireless is turned on. 2. Is wireless adapter driver installed?"
b) MyWifi Router: "Fail to start your Wifi hotspot. Error 1002. Computer's wireless card does not support wireless hotspot creation.
c) CMD Prompt: The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

3. I tried doing netsh wlan show drivers, it gave me this. I don't understand why it shows Hosted Network Supported as No. Because I used to get WiFi hotspot on Windows 8.1 and 10 on my laptop before.

I have it set up manually through command prompt to a certain name and password, but once in a while, it defaults to "LDC_SAP_(PC name)", with the same default password. I would then have to re-enter the information I changed it to again.
 
How can I prevent this from happening?
