Hi, I have been searching all over the internet for the same topic, but can't seem to find any, so I thought I should post it up. Please forgive me for my limited computer knowledge.

Anyways, I was trying to share my Ethernet through my "Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)" on my Windows 8 laptop. (Sometimes I can't find my internet through wifi on my Xperia and it guess frustrating trying to reset it for a thousand times) So I went on and started up command prompt with admin and all that, and used the code: "netsh wlan set hostednetwork ssid=JOSHCY key=1234567890" etc. and "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" etc.

Everything works fine EXCEPT when I started connecting to the virtual wifi network I have created, my devices (Xperia) and my Window Tab read the connection as "Limited".

So I looked around and realize that I didn't follow up the step of sharing my Ethernet to my Virtual Wifi. But everytime when I press Ethernet Properties -> Sharing -> Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection Home networking connection: JC-PC (JOSHCY), a message pops out and says:

"An error occurred while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled./ Internet Connection Sharing cannot be enabled. A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for automatic IP addressing."

So I reboot and try the whole process again, and realized that the Ethernet is being shared to a connection called "Wi-Fi" that is "Not connected". When I disable the "Wi-Fi", however, the Virtual hotspot disappears as well...

I am not sure what's going on, or what might have I done wrong, but totally confused and help would be really appreciated!!
