Hello, I have an issue with the Ad-Hoc Wireless Network I've created on my laptop through CMD (Running Windows 8.1)
I first followed the tutorial that admin blackguy organized to create my Ad-Hoc network. The reason I made the network was to connect my android phone to internet via Wi-Fi (Alcatel ONE TOUCH Fierce, firmware version:4.2.2) but I am not in range of my wireless router. Now, when I first created the Ad-Hoc network, my android phone was able to connect to it with no problems at all. Then after about 5 minutes using the network, I closed my laptop forgetting that would put it to sleep and it ended the network. I thought that wouldn't be big problem at all but I was wrong.
When I woke my laptop computer back up, my ad-hoc network wasn't up anymore so I went into CMD and did the command netsh wlan start hostednetwork
and started the network. From this point, I was able to see my network on my android phone, BUT I was not able to connect to it anymore. I made sure I typed my password in right, but when I try to connect on my phone, it either just doesnt try to connect at all, or it says "Connecting"
for about 10 seconds and then I get "Authentication Problem"
. I've been trying for the passed few hours now to reset the network, reboot my modem, restart my laptop & android phone, change the ssid name and the password, tons of things, but I just can't seem to connect to the Ad-Hoc network on my phone anymore. Can someone please help me out with this ASAP so I can share my computers internet with my phone???
Sorry for the long paragraphs-
Followed blackguy's tutorial to create Ad-Hoc Network, connected to network on phone just fine, accidentally stopped the network, started network back up, phone cannot connect to said Ad-Hoc network anymore.
Please don't recommend me to use Connectify or Virtual Router as I've already tried these too but I get the exact same result ("Connecting"
> 10 seconds pass > "Authentication Problem"
) I really need some help with this soon, please and thank you in advance.
