    cannot make virtual wifi


    i tried the following command on the command prompt(admin).

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=vikas key=devadutt
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    netsh wlan show hostednetwork

    it woked for first time. but i didnt know how to stop it. i did something foolish to stop it. after that virtual wifi never works.

    you know what i did. there was an icon in the network connections named vikas showing wireless. i right clicked it and disabled it. i actually did that to stop it. after that , icon disappered and virtual wifi never worked again. see, the command prompt image, that is the error message i am getting from the system.
