I can enable a hotspot with My WIFI Router software and a windows laptop. It works well, but I had to open the interface every time to enable. Is there any way to enable it automatically?

Hello aaa4556, and welcome to Geeks to Go.

 

I don't know which software you are using right now to create the hotspot. But this is a task that could be done pretty easy within Windows itself through some settings and commands. here you have a guide on how to set that up: How to Create a WiFi Hotspot Using the Command Prompt.

 

Once you've done that you just need to save somewhere and you system a .bat file (How to Write a Batch File) that has the hotspot starting command. And then add it to startup (How to Enable Programs and Custom Scripts to Run at Boot)

 

Hope this will help. It could be confusing so much links, but in fact it is pretty easy :D.

Hello aaa4556... and :welcome:



I'm not 100% sure I know exactly what you mean.  When you want it enabled automatically, are you referring to booting the laptop up?  If so...

Please let us know if this helps your situation at all.  :prop:

Of course that is what he wanted. The problem is that usually with this kind of software running the software at startup wouldn't help anything, because to get the hotspot running you've gotta press some sort of start button on the GUI.

Great!  Then it's just a matter of creating the batch file, as you already stated.  :yeah:
