Well, it's unfortunate I have a 5 year old laptop with Intel Pro Wireless 3945BG, that doesn't support Hosted Network (Wifi Direct) with its latest drivers. Or, does anyone know what is the remedy for this or any latest drivers that supports wifi direct on 3945?

To anyone still wondering about this topic, there is, as of Windows 8 GA no ad-hoc funcitonality. If your wireless card support WiFi direct then you can try http://www.addictive...otspot-creator/ or http://www.addictive...l-wi-fi-router/. Hope that helps :)
