    Use this link Create Wifi Hotspot in Windows using Command line
    Or you can use the app Open Garden if you are using Android.

    although the solutions provided above will work but if you want a solution without any software, then you can use this batch program to set up a wi-fi hotspot:

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=Bharat key=12345678
    netsh wlan start hostednetwork

    … here the wi-fi hotspot will be created with the name “Bharat” and the password “12345678”

    Hope this helps

    There are two ways of doing it:

    1. Note: This only works on Windows 7.

    Go to Network & Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings. Select your Ethernet and Wifi Adapters, right click and make a bridge connection. Then go back and click on Create a new connection, select Ad-Hoc connection and set it up, voila your laptop/PC is turned into a Wifi Hotspot.

    2. You can use software’s like:

    i. Connectify Hotspot
    ii. http://www.wifihotspotcreator.com/
    iii. http://virtualrouter.codeplex.com/

    Hope this will help you! :)
