I've created a GUI solution to your method. It is lightweight (less than 200kb) and works only with a click

Well yes. The virtual wifi which you create is just like any router. So anything that has a wifi receiver can connect to it :thumbup:

i was able to create the virtual AP using the steps provided by the OP. However, my phone will pass authentication, will show obtaining IP address and then it won't connect. Then the status will show as Saved, Secured. It will reconnect and then a message will appear the says "Attention! network disabled. Poor connection."

anyone has any ideas how to fix this?

Well looks like the device is having problem in taking the IP address. You sure have shared the internet from LAN properties?

1. Make sure that virtual wifi adapter created has an IP address. System automatically sets it to 192.168.137.1.

2. You can try is try setting the IP address manually in your S2 to 192.168.137.xxx, anything except 192.168. 137.1 and xxx can't be greater than 225.

Now this would skip the" obtaining IP address" when connecting.

I tried setting static IP but still it didn't work. But i managed to get it to work by uninstalling Dell Wireless Lan utility and re-installing the wifi driver. I'm thinking Dell utility is not compatible with it and it's causing it to not work properly. Anyway, it's all good now so thank you!

To all those who use Dell laptops with Dell Wireless 1540 wifi card and can't get virtual AP to work, you can try doing what I did.
