Creating an ad hoc network in Windows 8.1

On Windows 8 and 8.1, you can host a wireless network so that multiple PCs can play a LAN game or share files. Open a new command prompt as administrator:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=MyWirelessNetwork key=MyWirelessNetworkPassword1111

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

Then when you want to stop sharing

netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
