Hello Anderson88,

 

 

Intel® Wifi HotSpot Assistant is not supported with Windows® 10, therefore, it is not possible to use it in this configuration.

 

 

We would like to mention that the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N WiMAX 6150 is considered a legacy adapter and does not have full driver support for Windows® 10, however, it may work with Windows 8* or 8.1* drivers:

Hello Jeffrey,

 

 

With Windows® 10, the wireless connections are managed by the Operating System, so, Intel® WiFi HotSpot Assistant is not required to automatically connect your PC to free Wi-Fi hotspots.

 

Furthermore, this feature is being discontinued and is no longer available with Intel® PROset/Wireless Software 19.0.x or later, for Windows* 7 or 8.

If you are referring to the ability to use your PC as a Wireless Hotspot (access point), please be aware that this option is not currently supported either.
