    I have had Windows 10 on my WT8-A-102 forever, but I just tried to set up a mobile hotspot. It's not working, and I see in the device manager that I am missing the Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter. My Broadcom wireless adapter driver is version 5.93.102.22 from 2015, which must have been installed by a Windows update because the original, still available to download from Toshiba, is version 5.93.97.182 from 2013.

    Have any of you been able to get a mobile hotspot running on a WT8-A-102 with Windows 10? If so, what wireless driver are you using? Should I install 5.93.97.182? Would that make the Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter show up?

    Problem solved. It works. It just does not show up on the computer that creates it, only on others.
