Hello enryHo2006,

We would like to thank you for sharing the solution to this problem. I'm sure it will come in handy to many other customers.

It might be important to note that starting with driver version 18.30, the hosted network/soft AP feature is no longer supported for most adapters.

If you have any doubts or further issues relating to your Intel® Wireless Adapter, feel free to let us know.

Kind regards,
