How to Create Wireless Ad hoc network in Windows 8 and 10 in one minute

Read Time: 2 mins

In this article I will explain how to create Wireless Ad hoc network in Windows 8 and 10 in one minute. We all love playing multiplayer games such as Counter-strike, NFS, Fifa etc. But a wireless ad hoc network is required to connect your buddies to the game. Creating a wireless ad hoc network in Windows 8 and 10 is a tedious task since we have to use command line tool (cmd) to get it done.

 Windows 7 had a user friendly option for this under ‘Network and Internet settings’ in Control panel. But latest versions of Windows have removed this functionality.

There are lot of online tutorials for creating wireless ad hoc network using the command line tool in Windows. Most of the people might find it a little difficult to deal with as lots of commands are required to run. So I have developed a small application called WinLAN using which you can create a wireless ad hoc network within seconds.

Download WinLAN and follow steps given below:

WinLAN.exe (1881 downloads)

1.  Open the WinLAN.exe.

2. Give your network name and password in the fields SSID and PASS respectively.

3. Then click on Create button to create your network.

That’s it.  Your network has been created !!!

 

 

Note: Click on Stop button to close the network.
