Can not start the hotspot on the Windows 8 system?

Can not start the hotspot on the Windows 8 system?

C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan start hostednetwork
The hosted network couldn't be started.
The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.

Any clue?

I think you have not started wifi service or you missed to allow to use hosted network. see this command:

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=”QueryHome” key=”queryTech” 

here mode =allow,after successful run,shows that the hosted network mode has been set to allow and now you can use this state to start hotspot.after running this command,To start hotspot,run below command and let me know if it is working properly.

netsh wlan start hostednetwork

I did that but it was giving the problem, however once I rebooted the machine and problem was not there.
so after rebooting machine,hotspot is working properly?
Yes but its giving new problem, I am trying to share the LAN connection but sharing is not getting enabled.
have you shared your network by following these steps?
Network and sharing center->your connection-> properties->sharing-> select your connection which you want to share like ethernet/ethernet2

I installed Fedora 19 on my laptop, and it worked beautifully with the already installed Windows 8. When I upgraded the Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Now it boots straight to Windows 8.1 and grub does not appear.

I disabled secure boot in the firmware.

I do not even know which version of grub was booting the UEFI system before; it just worked.

Can anyone suggest:

  1. What grub would the Fedora 19 installer have provided to boot it and Windows 8? (grub2, grub-efi,...)
  2. Can anyone point to any documentation on how to fix this?
