I disabled and re-enabled it many times. Still no clue whats goin wrong I always get the error saying
"C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan start hostednetwork The hosted network couldn't be started. A device attached to the system is not
functioning."
The commands before that are running perfectly. The virtual adapter and everything is also enabled.
netsh wlan show hostednetwork

C:\Windows\system32> netsh wlan show hostednetwork

First of all go to the device manager now go to View>>select Show hidden devices....Then go
to network adapters and find out Microsoft Hosted network Virual Adapter ....Press right click
and enable the option....
Then go to command prompt with administrative privileges and then go for the following
command:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow
netsh wlan start hosted network.

Your Hostednetwork will work without any problems.

At first simply uninstall wifi drivers and softwares just keep wifi drivers + from device
manager....network adapters...remove all virtual connections
then
Press the Windows + R key combination to bring up a run box, type ncpa.cpl and hit enter.
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=How-To Geek key=Pa$$w0rd
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
netsh wlan show hostednetwork

Same issue.
I solved the problem first activating (right click mouse and select activate) from control panel
(network connections) and later changing to set mode to allow (by netsh command), to finally
starting the hostednetwork with other netsh command, that is:
1.- Activate (Network Connections) by right click
2.- netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow
3.- netsh wlan start hosted network
Good luck mate !!!

This is a perfectly good line. And if it doesn't give any errors, you can run with it. Nicky Smits Mar 13 '14 at
