How to make laptop as Wi-Fi hotspot?

©mß

Journeyman
I use MTS Mblaze for internet and want to make my Laptop running Windows8 as a wifi hotspot.
I have already watched many videos on youtube.
ALready tried that CMD method and already tried all softwares(i think).
Now help me with the same keeping in mind that I am using MBlaze.

Tried connectify not working.
Not an option to go to Windows7. What's guarantee that it would work after that?

which laptop do you have?
New HP laptops have an app for wifi hotspot to make a PC become a hotspot taking internet off LAN or Mblaze and so on.

Can you see 'Microsoft Virtual WiFi MiniPort Adapter' in device manager > Network adapters?

Check if your wifi adapter is compatible with connectify. If the hardware isn't capable of creating a hotspot (like Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG which my laptop has), no software would be of help.

It is capable of doing so because I checked it by typing a command in CMD which verified it can.

I have already tried these methods. Not working.

No, there is nothing like Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter.

When you create virtual wifi hotspot, the above entry should be visible under device manager and network adapter list. I have successfully tried creating wi-fi hotspot in my toshiba laptop running win 8. In my PC I am using Edup brand wi-fi adapter and the software/driver itself has an option to create virtual wi-fi.

Yes, it shows when I create.
