Want to make your Asus laptop a WiFi hotspot for your mobile phone? Can you use Asus notebook as a Wi-Fi hotspot? It’s easy to create a free WiFi hotspot on your Asus PC to share internet connection with other mobile devices, like an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Samsung Galaxy, HTC One, LG G3/2, Sony Xperia, Motorola, or any other Android phones and tablets.
You can instantly turn your Windows Asus laptop, notebook or desktop PC into a sharing WiFi hotspot. Microsoft has built the “Virtual WiFi” technology into Windows 7 and up, but you need to type several commands in order to set up your Asus computer WiFi hotspot, especially on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Since many users have reported that using commands can’t get the internet access on smartphones, we do not recommend you to try it.
Instead, without typing commands, you can easily use your Asus computer as a free WiFi hotspot with just one click. OSToto Hotspot (formerly called 160WiFi) is the “turn your laptop into WiFi hotspot software”. This Asus computer to hotspot converter is free and enables you to make your Asus laptop, notebook or desktop computer a WiF hotspot with just one click. Any WiFi enabled devices can connect to the hotspot access point and then share internet connection with the password.
Free download and install OSToto Hotspot on your Asus computer for Windows OS, including 64 bit or 32 bit Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
Before You Turn on WiFi Hotspot on Asus Computer in Windows 10/8.1/8/7/XP/Vista
A computer needs a wireless network adapter in order to build a wireless hotspot. Without the wireless network adapter, you can’t convert your computer into a WiFi hotspot no matter how. Therefore, check if your Asus computer has a working wireless network card before you are going to transform it into a WiFi hotspot or wireless router.
Most laptops and only parts of desktop computers come with a wireless network adapter already installed. You can check if your Asus laptop, notebook or desktop computer has a wireless network adapter. Here is how:
1. Open Device Manger. You can click on the Start button of your Asus computer, and type “device manager” in the search box. In the pop-up results, click on Device Manager.
2. In the Device Manager, find “Network adapters” and double-click on it.
3. Check if there is a network adapter that includes “wireless” in the name. If yes, congratulations. Your Asus computer does have one. If no, you need to buy one (such as a USB wireless LAN network card) to install on your computer.
Another important thing you have to do before making a WiFi hotspot on your Asus PC is to make sure the wireless network adapter is detected by your computer and is working properly. You will see a yellow mark near your wireless network adapter name in the Device Manager if there is any problem, and regularly it’s the driver issue. Try to fix the wireless network adapter driver, and then you can continue to turn your Asus computer into a WiFi hotspot.
