Windows 7 as an wi-fi access point » IT Geek Diary

20 Nov 09 Windows 7 as an wi-fi access point

Now with Windows 7 you can share your internet connection as an access point with the the drivers that came with Windows 7, Windows also installs the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

 

To configure it use the Command Prompt in Administrator elevated:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=itgeekdiary key=typepassword

 

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Gordon key=1111111111

 

This configures a Wireless Lan network with SSID “itgeekdiary” and protected with the key “typepassword”

Enable Internet sharing on your internet connected network card, in my case that is the Wireless Network Connection modem card. Select the virtual Wifi as home networking connection, wi-fi mini port

Open the virtual miniport wifi adapter properties and uncheck all except IPv4

And at the command prompt type:

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

That’s it !!!

if you want to disable, at the command prompt:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow ssid=itgeekdiary key=typepassword
