The hosted network/soft AP feature is not supported on the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 with driver version 18.30 or later. Windows® 10 introduced a new driver model, therefore, the hosted network function is no longer supported.

Thank you for answering Jonathan!!!
My Operating system is Window 10 and my driver version is 188.8.131.52.
I would like to Use my PC as a mobile hotspot.
If this driver is not allowed to hosted networks , which driver could you recommend me ?
As noted in the FAQ document linked before, hosted networks are no longer supported; however, Windows® 10 version 1607 (Windows 10 Anniversary Update) introduces a similar feature called the mobile hotspot.
