Solve "The Hosted Network Couldn't be Started.." Error

While creating the WiFi network, sometimes we get "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation" error when we run netsh wlan start hostednetwork command through Command Prompt in Windows. To fix this error follow the steps.

Step 1> Go to the Control Panel then select Device Manager.

Step 2> Go to the View tab and click Show hidden devices

Step 3> Now from the list of devices, expand Network Adapters.

Step 4> Right click on Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter and select Enable.

This will enable the Ad-hoc connection. If Ad-hoc connection is still not connected then run netsh wlan stop hostednetwork from the Command Prompt. Then again try to start the connection through netsh wlan start hostednetwork.
