  • Question

  • Hello people, I had  just got win8 os in my system.and i want to Convert my Windows 8 laptop into Wifi Hotspot using DWM-156, sharing wifi to my mobile gadgets but using command prompt setting i'm stucked in a step to fix these issue and that is "Administrator privileges" issue. As i am here with all the following steps... 


    Step 1: Launch an elevated command prompt under Windows 8 (one with administrator privileges).

    Step 2: Run the following command to verify that your network interface supports virtualization: netsh wlan show drivers..

    Here in command promt screen shows- C:\Users\Admin> netsh wlan show drivers .. after entering it shows detail of

    Interface Wi-Fi

    Drivers and all that and  in between it shows message" Hosted network supported:Yes"

    So upto step 2 i am all set but after these i am stuck in a problem in step 3.. Here step 3 is..

    Step 3: Now, set up the ad hoc wireless network using this command. Replace the parts in markup tags with your own choices . Here command is:netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<enter_network_name_here> key=<enter_password_here>. in command prompt i type

    C:\Windows\System32>netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=rajeev key=12345678

    after entering this command i got a message "You must run a command from a command prompt with administrator privilege" and i cant able to proceed forward. I will also say that my administator name is 'rajeev' and i tried different names in command prompt. i also don't have the knowledge to make or change administrator in system. please help me in these
