A simple script for creating a WiFi HotspotBy Dag, on December 30th, 2016
Edit the script for the desired SSID and password, save and run as administrator.
It will first show you if your computer supports hotspot at all, then press enter to attempt creating one.
Script will halt when done. Press any key again to close the hotspot and clean up.
@ECHO OFF set HOTSPOT_SSID=VerkstedTest set HOTSPOT_KEY=12345678 ECHO Listing driver info you can inspect to check driver hotspot support... netsh wlan show drivers ECHO. ECHO Continue to attempt creating hotstop, or close now. ECHO Driver info above should say "Hosted network supported : Yes". PAUSE ECHO. ECHO Attempting to create wireless hotspot... netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=%HOTSPOT_SSID% key=%HOTSPOT_KEY% netsh wlan start hostednetwork ECHO. ECHO.
