    WiFi Hotspot Problem in My Laptop


    Hi, I have installed windows10 pro in my laptop. I used window8 before it. I was able to make wifi hotspot in my previous windows8. But in this windows10 pro I can not use wifi hotspot with my samsunggallaxy s3 phone. I have used several types of wifi hotspot creator software, like, my wifi router (I used it before), my public wifi, baidu wifi, virtual router and with COMMAND Prompt. Phone is showing connected, but cannot access to the internet. Please help me.

    My laptop config:
    Asus dual core
    model: a42f

    Are you trying to turn a wired Ethernet connection into WiFi? I don't know if this works in Windows 10:
    Turn Windows Into A WiFi Hotspot Share Your Internet Connection

    I can tell you an alternative that I have used which worked fantastic on a family vacation for us:

    Amazon.com: HooToo Wireless Travel Router, USB Port, High Performance- TripMate Nano (Not a Hotspot): Computers Accessories

    That little unit worked great in several roles on my trip and can be powered from a USB port - or USB wall charger. In the car I had it plugged into cigarette lighter USB charger for power, it powered a USB hard drive with movies and created a WiFi LAN so the non-drivers could watch movies on our laptops/tablets. Using Open Garden software I was also able to share the data connection from our cell phones to our WiFi only tablets/laptops when they were all connected to the same WiFi LAN created by the unit.

    You can plug a wired Ethernet cable into it and it will create a WiFi LAN for you - so in a location with wired Ethernet you can plug in your USB hard drive, have all your computers connected via WiFi for file sharing/streaming, and internet browsing via the LAN connection. The hotel LAN connection stays on a separate subnet so other users on the hotel LAN can't get to your computers/shared hard drive.

    At one location I was able to connect the unit to the resorts WiFi which was out of range of our laptops/tablets and it repeated the signal for us so we could have internet in our cabin after the resort told us WiFi internet was only available in their lounge, although it did take a while for the unit to acquire the WiFi signal and pull an IP address, but once it did it kept it and we were good to go.

    When it says "not a hotspot" it means that it won't connect to a 3G or 4G cell phone data signal and convert that to WiFi.

    There is software out there to use your computer as a Hotspot. No need for extra hardware.

    In the Command Prompt window, enter the following command:

    netsh wlan show drivers

    If you see line: Hosted network supported : Yes it means your Wi-Fi adaptor will work, and you can share your Wi-Fi signal easily.
    If not, either your adaptor does not support this, or you need new drivers.

    If OK, see below
    Share an Internet connection and turn a Windows 7 or 8 PC in to a Wireless Hotspot (even on a VPN)! | Infrastructure Systems Group Blog
