Hi All,

 

I would like a wireless hotspot on my work PC, because I am too far away from the router to get a good signal...

 

I've tried creating it using CMD (instructions here: http://woshub.com/how-to-create-a-wi-fi-access-point-on-windows-10/) although I could never get internet to work on the hotspot, even after sharing the Ethernet connection.

 

Does anyone else have any simple ideas for me?

Cheers, that makes it much easier, but uses the same approach as the link above and for me it doesn't work.  Perhaps it is blocked by our IT (says no internet connection)?

Yes, probably it is blocked by a group policy.
