Windows 7: Creating a wifi hotspot from my PC

Creating a wifi hotspot from my PC

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. I am using a wireless modem and I don't have any router.I surfed google and found a lot of software and tutorial to create a wifi hotspot but none of them works.

To create hotspot using only Windows 7, I followed this tutorial but I don't have "Set Up a wireless ad hoc network" option.

If you see the following pictures, u will get the idea :

As I said above, none of the software work for me.All of them show problems when I try to connect.
So, any solution?

Thanks in advance

From the looks of it the Intel WiMax driver doesn't have an updated Windows WHQL driver. Because of this it also doesn't have the Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport adaptor which is what the adaptor uses to create the virtual access point.

I can't see which version of WiMax adaptor you are using but you might try Windows update for an updated driver for this adaptor.

When you install the updated WHQL driver you will see the virtual driver in the Device Manager and on the Network Adaptors page.

After that it should be easy to set up the access point using commands or connectify software.

How can I make my WiMAX driver a Windows WHQL driver and how to install Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport adaptor? If I do those two things will I be able to create hotspot?

Note : My WiMAX Network Adapter is up-to-date, I checked it.

Thank You,

If the driver won't support the virtual WiFi then you are out of luck unless you get another adaptor that does support it.
