Connect to adhoc wifi networks in Windows 8.1

keywords: joikuspot, adhoc, mobile, tethering, Nokia, Windows 8, Windows 8.1

You need to follow tutorial here to manually create network with needed name and password, remove both ticks (connect auto, connect even if not broadcasting).

*not sure if this was needed, but I went to device manager and in the properties of my WiFi card set AdhocChannel=6 (same as in Joikuspot)

Then, open Command Prompt (As admin):


netsh> wlan

netsh wlan> set profileparameter name="ssid" ConnectionType=IBSS

then try connecting to your adhoc network

netsh wlan> connect “ssid”

if it worked well, create .bat file with the following command

netsh wlan connect “ssid”

and execute it everytime when you need to connect to adhoc network.
