How To Turn You Computer into a WiFi Hotspot

Create your own wifi hotspot on Windows 7 or 8 –

You don’t need connectify or any other software for it. Also, you can save yourself from that 90 minutes counter in connectify.

All you need to do is run the following two commands in cmd –

Open cmd. Make sure you’re running this as Administrator.

1) netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifiname key=wifipassword

2) netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Best solution – Make a batch file of it and just run the file every time when you start the pc.

To make a batch file –

Write the following information in a notepad document and save the file as “hotspot.bat” or something similar.

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifiname key=wifipassword
 
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

You can simply double click the new .bat file to launch your hotspot :).
Important – For this to work, your sharing should be on in network properties for the network/ethernet connection that you want to share through your wifi:

Go to Open Network and Sharing Centre ->Change Adapter Settings(On left panel)
