I have been using Windows 10 Ad Hoc network (netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=wifi key=111111111111) and
(netsh wlan start hostednetwork) for a few months with no problems at all, but suddenly it has stopped working.

I cannot longer connect to it with my android phone. I can see newly created network with internet access in networks and sharing center.

Yes, I enabled sharing on the first network in network properties. No success. Tried reinstalling system. Again, no success. Tried Baidu hot spot,

OTtoto Hot spot, Connectify with no success. My phone detects such created network but, cannot connect to it. Sometime, when trying to enable

sharing on first network I am getting a message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set
to use IP address Your computer may lose connectivity with
other computers on your network. If these other computers have static IP
addresses, you should set them to obtain their IP addresses automatically.
Are you sure you want to enable Internet Connection Sharing?

Any help, please.

Hi braco_kljuc,


Are you able to connect other devices to the ad-hoc network that you created?

Is your phone able to connect to other wireless networks?

Are you using a password on the wifi connection? If so, has it been the same each time you've tested? 


It could be an issue with your phone.

Have you completely rebooted the phone?


You could try making your phone forget the network and then re-establishing a new profile for the wifi connection.
