    Hi guys, Justin here.

    A few days, ago, I was wondering if I could make my laptop a mobile hotspot, so I did a Google search and follow the instructions here:

    How to turn your Windows 7 or 8.1 laptop into a wireless hotspot | TechRadar

    In short, I went into cmd, and did the following:

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyNet key=MyPassword

    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    Now, after I did this and selected my Wifi adapter as the router, the icon disappeared, which I thought was odd. After doing that, I tried connecting to my laptop but it didn't work, so I reverted it with instructions from the same website:

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=disallow

    netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
    After disabling it, I tried connecting to my home's Wifi and it showed Limited Connectivity. I thought it was a problem on my Router's end, so I restarted my router to no avail. The following day, I brought my laptop to uni and tried connecting to its Wifi, and it showed Limited Connectivity as well, and it had been working for the past 6 years I've had my laptop with no issues. Both times, my phone could connect absolutely fine. I'm quite convinced that attempting to change my wireless adapter into a router was the cause of this. I urgently need access to wifi for class, and I'm at my wit's end. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated.

    Warm regards,

    Have you tried the simple remedy of using Device Manager to remove the wireless adapter and then reinstall the drivers?
