Hello Arris,

 

 

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.

 

 

Please try the following:

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.

 

 

Best regards,

Hello Arris,

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.

Best regards,

 

Carlos A.
