Earlier posted about creating a wifi hotspot in Windows laptop using freeware software, now I’d like to repost the same trick using command prompt without any software. I thought using command prompt would more complex so I avoided this method at that time but it is very easy you can execute this trick within few simple steps. If you have a problem with the earlier method which I posted you can try this alternative method. It works well on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.  You can share this internet to any Wi-Fi device.
