  1. Sharing a WiFi connection through Windows Hotspot using 2 adapters


    Hi,my issue has been discussed before, 4 years ago thread closed: 2 WiFi adapters, one to receive, the other as hotspot - Microsoft CommunityI would like to share an internet connection that is established using an external USB-WiFi adapter through a hotspot in Windows 10, using the internal WiFi chip for the hotspot. Use case is as described in the earlier posting.While sharing a wired connection through a hotspot works like a charm on my Windows 10 system, sharing a WiFi connection through a second WiFi device will not work.

  2. wifi hotspot connection issues

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Let us follow these steps one by one to check if that makes any difference.

    Step 1: You may run the Network Adapter troubleshooter to check if that helps.

    • Type Troubleshoot in the Search bar of your PC and open the Troubleshoot settings.
    • Scroll down the right pane and select ‘Network Adapter’ and click on ‘Run Troubleshooter’.
    • The PC will then start checking for the possible errors and will possibly detect the issue.
    Once this is done, restart the PC and check the wifi hotspot connectivity.

    Step 2: If the issue persists, then you may want to
    update the Network driver
    and check the status.

    Step 3: You may also want to change the adapter settings.

    • Open Mobile Hotspot settings on your PC.
    • Press ‘Windows key + I’ to open Settings and go to ‘Network and Internet’.
    • Scroll down the left pane and select ‘Mobile Hotspot’.
    • Go to ‘Related Settings’ from the right pane and click on ‘Change adapter options’.
    • Identify your mobile hotspot adapter, right click and go to ‘Properties’.
    • Open Sharing tab and Uncheck “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection”.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

  3. Wifi turns off automatically when a device is connected to my hotspot


    Whenever a device is connected to my hotspot the wifi is turning off automatically thereby stopping the hotspot.

    To turn the Windows 10 hotspot on, in first step I have turned on the Wireless Network Connection as shown in the below image.

    After that I did following steps in Command Prompt(Admin) for hotspot
    1. netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyWiFi key=mypassword
    2. netsh wlan start hostednetwork

    In netsh wlan show hostednetwork command, it shows the hotspot had started successfully as shown in the below image.

    I have unchecked the Power management option i.e, Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
    All driver are updated to the latest versions.

    From the above screenshot, the Wi-Fi 2 is which I am trying to connect. When I right-click on Wi-Fi 2 and click on Connect/Disconnect, It shows the already connected Wifi through USB mini adapter.

    When I Disable WiFi and try to connect through WiFi 2 then it shows an error "Change settings, such as making a connection metered"

    The device utility does not show any Wifi available connections though there are 2-3 wifi connection is there.
