Hi Friends,

Can anybody help me to resolve the following issue ??????

I am using Intel My WiFi Dashboard and when I tries to Share my internet to make WiFi HotSpot, It Says "Connect To Internet".

I am already connected to internet using Broadband but Wifi dashboard didn't detect my connection.

The reason for My Wi-Fi Dashboard not detecting your connection is because you have a "public network" profile on your connection. Windows doesn't allow internet sharing when you are connected to a public network. Change your connection to "Home network" and Windows will allow network and internet sharing with that profile. Your Wi-Fi dashboard should now be able to see that you have internet connection and be able to create a hotspot.

Sujesh, it will be necessary to connect via wireless LAN and disconnect your wired connection for Intel® My WiFi Dashboard to be able to share your internet connection.
