As displayed in your NETSH output, hosted networks are not supported by your adapter. However, if you're using Windows® 10, there is a native mobile hotspot feature that is supported by all of our latest wireless drivers.
A Hosted Network is when a host device emulates the functionality of a wireless router, creating a new network altogether. Mobile hotspots are similar, but they work as an extension of your already existing Ethernet or Wireless network.

If you're using Windows 8.1 or previous, this will not work. For legacy OS versions, you will need to rely on unsupported third-party tools.
We understand your frustration.
With Windows® 10, Microsoft* introduced a new driver model called the https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/drivers/network/wifi-universal-driver-model WLAN Device Driver Interface (WDI). We are required to follow this driver model in order for our adapters to be Windows® 10 certified and included in the Windows* Compatible Products List.
The new driver model http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/instantanswers/c60dcfa3-c596-41d4-8c1a-b0d738e1d9fd/use-your-pc-a... no longer supports Hosted and Ad-hock networks.
