How to fix the hosted network couldn’t be started

Running the netsh command can give us problems such as “The hosted network couldn’t be started: The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.”

Firstly, we are trying to create a wifi hotspot and its critical for us to know – A hotspot is a site that offers Internet access over a wireless local area network (WLAN) through the use of a router connected to a link to an Internet service provider. Hotspots typically use Wi-Fi technology.

The main reason for the error to pop up is you are most likely trying to configure it on your LAN adapter which is why it won’t work. Also it could be that your wifi adapter doesn’t have hotspot capabilities. So lets test it out.

2. In the Device Manager window, right click on the network adapter your system is using and select Properties.

 

3. On the property sheet, switch to Power Management tab, check the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power option. Click OK.

Close the Device Manager and reboot. Retry to start the hosted network now and this time it should work fine without any error.

If the issue still persists, run netsh wlan show hostednetwork command and notice the Hosted network status section. If it says Not available, it means your machine doesn’t have hotspot creation capabilities as the hardware required isn’t present.
 
You can also buy a wireless adapter on amazon. The TP Link (TL-WN722N) seems to work great for sniffing and dos’ing purposes and not expensive at all.
