Not all wireless adapters support hosted networks, so you need to check to see if your adapter supports that feature.

 

  • Right click on Start and select Command Prompt (Admin) and press Enter
  • In the Command Prompt (Admin) window, type:  netsh wlan show drivers and press enter

In the resulting window, if you see "Hosted network supported  : No"  your computers WiFi adapter does not support WiFi hosted networks.
