    I have tried the command line netsh crap and this doesnt work. (error: The hosted network couldn't be started.
    The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.) Best I can tell is that it isn't possible because there is no power mgmnt on the marvel wifi adapter?

    I know there is native hotspot support for the SP3 with the built in 3g/4g. But alas mine is not that type. Please help or am I just out of luck.....

    Welcome to the forum

    They used to call that network communication/connection sharing but it has been available in Windows for quite some time now. The only way it could be done now would bee with a 3G/4G equipped device.

    It was at one time known as ICS, Internet Connection Sharing.
