    How to create WIFI network without internet connectiion


    Hi,

    How can i create local WIFI network without having internet access on my pc. This seems to work if I have access to internet but when i disconnect internet connection my PC ( virtual router ) cannot see anymore other devices..

    All other devices that are connecting to my virtual hostednetwork are working without any problems expect my pc. What have i missed that my PC where virtual hostednetwork is running cannot see devices in "virtual" network without internet access?

    What virtual machine are you talking about? The computer WiFi would have nothing to do with the VM. But in order for the VM to see devices on the network. You have to be connected to the network through wired or wifi connection.

    I would like to share network between devices without having external router. 1 have on pc ( without internet connection) which i have turned to wifi hotspot

    Like this: Create WiFi Hotspot On Windows 8,8.1/7 Using Command Prompt ? CMD

    But these instructions seems to be ok, if pc ( router) is connected to internet. Should i get this work also without internet connection ?

    You are wanting to use ICS. ICS is a bad thing. Do yourself a favor and invest into a router. They are cheap these days. You can get a Wireless-G with 10/100 LAN ports, for around $20.
