How to Create Wifi HotSpot using Notepad

Wifi HotSpot.jpgMost of the time we find it very difficult to create a Wifi HotSpot on our computer. Even I also find it little hassle task to do because I need to go through multiple options which might looks very tedious. Here today I going to show you that how can you create a Wifi HotSpot with a single click.For this we’ll use the Notepad (built-in text editor in windows) and a simple batch code.Follow these steps carefully:-

For Creating Wifi HotSpot

  • Open Notepad.
  • Now just copy/paste below given code into Notepad

  • netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Name key=PASSWORD
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork

  • Now change the values of SSID and KEY (written in RED colour).
  • Here SSID represent your Hotspot Name & KEY represent your wifi Password,this password is for security purpose to protected it from unauthorized access.Note that your password must contain minimum 8 characters and always try to choose a strong password which consists digits and atleast one capital letter but must not contain any special character.
  • Now just save it as CreateWiFi.bat.
  • Now to create or start your Wifi Hotspot just double click on it or open it.

How to Stop this HotSpot

To stop this HotSpot we have to make another batch file. For this first of all open Notepad and copy/paste below given code into the Notepad.

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

Save it as StopWifi.bat.
That’s all…Now whenever you want to start your HotSpot open CreateWiFi.bat and to stop this open StopWiFi.bat.

Here’s the Explanation of the code we used above

  • Netsh – this is used for remotely or locally access or modify Windows Network Configurations
  • Wlan – Wireless LAN
  • set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=” ” key=” ” – This command configures the WLAN Name And password. Actually it configures the Wireless Hosted Network a new WLAN feature of Windows 7 and windows 8, with this feature your Windows computer can use a single physical wireless adapter to act as a client to connect with a Hardware AP .while the same acts as a Software AP allowing other wireless-capable devices to connect to it.
  • netsh wlan start hostednetwork - Start Wifi HotSpot which we configured above.
  • netsh wlan stop hostednetwork – Stop Wifi HotSpot.
