How to Make Your PC a Hotspot with Intel® My WiFi Dashboard

By turning your computer into a Hotspot, you can give other devices access to resources that your computer is connected to, including the Internet.

Note This feature is not present for Intel® My WiFi Dashboard lite.

How to make your computer a Hotspot:
  1. On the Options bar, click on Hotspot. It should now say on.
    • The Hotspot settings tab appears showing the Hotspot SSID and the Hotspot password. This is the information you will need to enter when accessing the Hotspot from another computer or device.
  2. Click OK to close the Hotspot settings tab.
Note If this is the first time you are using the Hotspot feature you will see the default SSID and password. You should change the default Hotspot settings to maintain security over what computers or devices have access to this Hotspot.

To configure Internet connection sharing, see Hotspot settings.
