Are you trying to use something like VirtualRouter? I have had some trouble with these programs especially with Win7/8 compatibility. Generally I am able to solve them with some troubleshooting but there is not one Fix All. Let me know exactly what software you are using to create the hotspot, as well as what operating system you are using.

I need help view viewing a saved wifi password on my nextbook 10.1 intel quadcore tablet. I forgot the password and need it to hook up to my other devices

To view your password you need to open up a command prompt (cmd.exe)

Than type in netsh wlan show profile and press enter. This command will show all of the access point you have connected to in the past

Now type in netsh wlan show profile "your access point SSID without the quote" key=clear and press Enter

example if my SSID is ABCD than I would type it like this

netsh wlan show profile ABCD key=clear

It will show you the password of your access point.

How do i pull up "Netsh" on a toshiba laptop?

Assuming you've already confirmed that the toshiba can supported a hosted network ...
to create a hotspot, at the command prompt, type "netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=yournetworkname key=yournetworkpassword," and hit Enter on your keyboard. Remember, "ssid" refers to the WiFi hotspot's name while "key" is said network's password. You can also use the aforementioned command to change the hotspot's name and password.

To get the hotspot up and running, type "netsh wlan start hostednetwork.

2.Right click connection you want to connect to and hit properties.
3.Uncheck ivp6 and click on ipv4 to highlight it and hit properties.
4.Ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked as well as obtain dns server automatically. if not check them both and hit ok.
5.If this does not work open your command prompt.To do that click on start/all programs/accessories right click command prompt and hit run as administrator.
6. Once open write the following commands and hit Enter after
1. netsh int ip reset reset.log
2. netsh int ip delete arpcache
3. netsh winsock reset
4. ipconfig /flushdns
