Turn Your Windows 7 PC Into a Wireless Hotspot for Free

There are some free and paid softwares with wich you can turn your windows 7 pc into a wirelss hotspot, but are not so good or they didn’t satisfied my needs.

With 2 lines of code you can make from your windows 7 pc a wi-fi hotspot for free. This is usefull if you have tablets or phones and you want to share the internet connection at home or at the office and you don’t have a wireless router.

Run cmd  and type 2 commands

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyFreeWirelessHotspot key=mypassword
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

 

 

Only the first time you have to share your internet LAN connection to your new wireless connection as picture below

 

 

and that’s it! Your free windows 7 wi-fi hotspot. No software required.

 

 

 

 

 

P.S.: You can start your wireless free hotspot on windows 7 with just one line of code

netsh wlan start hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyFreeWirelessHotspot key=mypassword

    this is awesome, we have super crappy wifi in our dorms and placing a laptop by the door gave us a really strong connection throughout our room. any idea how to do this for a phone?

  • Joel Charley

    tried this and when i tried to start it, it came up with the following error “The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation”. Any ideas as to how to fix this?

      You could try to run cmd as Administrator

  • Drory

    Like Joel, when I ran the 2nd cmd line I got the same error message “The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation”

    I hope the 1st line didn’t screw anything up!

    Hi, 
    Thanks for this wonderful 2 line hotspot, However, I am unable to connect from any of my devices. My ipad & mobile both connect to the laptop, but no internet activity is seen.a. I am trying to share the 3G connection from the USB dongle.b. My wifi adaptor is on and connected to the net but the hotspot status continues to show “No Internet Access”Is there something else I need to do ?
