My Windows 7 ASUS X53S connects to the internet through the Intel My Wifi Technology
Centrino Wireless N-100.
I will not allow me to enable the computer as a WiFi spot. When you right click the green
icon with the x on it, and you click "Enable Intel My WiFi Technology", it does not.
Any ideas are appreciated.
The driver is current.
Please go to Control Panel - Programs and features and let us know the version of Intel® PROset/Wireless Software that you are using.
Also, in Control Panel - Device Manager, check the driver version used by the Intel® Centrino® Wireless N-100.
Can you confirm if this was working before, or if this is the first time you try use this feature.
If possible, provide a screenshot of the issue.
I solved the problem as follow:
I had an existing My Wifi Hotspot functionality that just stopped working. After many hours, found that an automatic software update that was performed did not install all the required features of the My Wifi driver, rendering it unable to "Enable" when you click on it. Sadly (stupidly) the Intel My Wifi software does not give you a warning message of the missing driver features - it just goes back to "Not enabled" - no message, no nothing.
