    Since I don't have a wifi router, I had some problems setting up network connection on my asus note. I decided to write a little guide for those who want some connectivity on their note and don't have a wifi router, and want to use their windows computer as a wireless access point.

    As it turned out, asus doesn't like connecting to ad-hoc networks (atleast I could't get it connect), so instead you have to set up a network based on virtual wifi miniport:

    Run cmd with admin rights and copy this:

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid='your network name' key="yourpassword" keyUsage=persistent
    Now go to your windows network manager, change adapter settings, check if something new apeard, if it didn't you did something wrong (or your wifi adapter is old), if something did (most likely it will be labeled Wireless Network Connection X) then, right click the interface which has internet (most likely Local Area Connection), select Properties, go to "Sharing" tab, select the check box and select the newly created wifi adapter.

    When use this command to start your network:

    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    Go and try connecting ;)

    To stop networking:

    netsh wlan stop hostednetwork
    *If your wireless network card is too old, this might not work.
