  2. Turn on your WiFi Network
  3. Go to Network and Sharing Center and click on "Change adapter settings"
  4. And Note the Name of you WiFi network adapter.In my case its "Wi-Fi"
  5. And Open the properties window by right clicking on you internet adapter card (your network adapter name could be "Ethernet Or Local Area Connection")
  6. On Sharing tab choose "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet Connection" and select the WiFi adapter name that you have noted in step 4 and click OK.
  7. Open Command Prompt as administrator (Evaluated Command Prompt)
  8. Now type Below Commands 
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid="XYZ" key=Password 

(at XYZ give the desire name that your WiFi Hotspot will show while connecting and Type desire password in place of "Password")
