Share VPN over Wi-Fi on Windows

Sun Apr 19, 2020 10:05 am

Hi,

I need to share my WiFi from a Windows machine. My goal is to be able to use my Windows PC as a wireless WiFi hub with VPN capabilities. Need to use external USB wireless adapter, the PC doesn't have buildt in WiFi network card. Trying to follow this receipe on how to share a VPN connection over Wi-Fi but get the following message:

The USB wireless adapter is an ASUS USB-AC56. I'm not able to find anything relevant in the documentation, so I'm unsure if I need to troubleshoot the ASUS or Windows.
Any suggestions?

Steam has a free program called Omnify Hotspot that apparently does what you want.

May not be worth anything - however I had a similar issue when I was trying get my chromecast not to see my network location.
I eventually presumed (which maynot be true) the error was because the laptop had a built in hotspot function.
Therefore I just ended connecting my chromecast to the laptop hotspot function to get around my issue.

If this info is not worth anything ...by all means throw it away !!!!!

What about Cyberghost VPN? This is good VPN for torrenting?
