Here is the tutorial for how to create a wifi hotspot in windows 7, windows 8, windows 8.1. You don’t require any software like connectify. Just follow this simple steps and make a virtual wifi Router or Wifi hotspot.

All you need to do is run the following two commands in cmd –
Open cmd with Run as Administrator.
1) netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifiname key=wifipassword
2) netsh wlan start hostednetwork
Best solution – Make a batch file of it and just run the file every time when you start the pc.
To make a batch file –
First write the commands on a notepad

Then save it with the extension bat.  e.g. wifi.bat
Your batch file is made and now execute the file with Admin Privileges.
Important – For this to work, your sharing should be on in network properties for  the network/ethernet connection that you want to share through your  wifi:
Go to Open Network and Sharing Centre ->Change Adapter Settings(On left panel)
Your wifi hotspot would be Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adaptor in the Network Connections.
Go to the properties of the LAN/ethernet/WiFi connection and make the changes accordingly.
Your wifi hotspot would be ready. :)
To stop the wifi hotspot –
Write the following in command prompt : netsh wlan stop hostednetwork.
