Microsoft Hosted Network Adapter missing after updating to Windows 10. Please help!

I can no longer create a hotspot since I updated to windows 10. Microsoft Hosted Network Adapter doesn't appear on Device Manager so I can't fix it using the suggestions google gives. This is stressing me out! Smiley Indifferent

    It's a driver issue. You can open a command prompt and run netsh wlan show drivers and see if it supports a hostednetwork. Update to the latest driver at Acer. If Windows 10 keeps installing the same bad driver, I recommend you roll back to 8.1

    It says "No" when I did the cmd thing. What I did is, I installed the windows 8.1 driver and it works fine now. Thank you Smiley Happy

    That's great. Take a look at Start8. http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/

    To me, this completes 8.1.
