I love playing multiplayer games like Counter-strike, NFS etc. But a wireless ad hoc network is relevant 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 has a user friendly option for this under Network and Internet settings in Control panel. But latest versions of Windows have removed this functionality from Control panel.
There are lot of online tutorials for creating wireless ad hoc network using the command line in Windows. Most of the people might feel it as little difficult to work with. So I have developed a small application called WinLAN using which you can create an wireless ad hoc network within seconds.
Download WinLAN and follow steps given below:
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.
