How To: Extend a (Hacked)Router's Range with a Wireless Adapter.

Extend a (Hacked)Router's Range with a Wireless Adapter.

Hi Elite Hackers!

Welcome! to my 4th post. This tutorial will explain, how to extend a (hacked) AP's range with a wireless adapter. I made this guide because after hacking an AP it was difficult to connect to it (poor connection) and further exploit it. You can also use this:

1) If you don't have a Router
2) If you want to extend range of your own Router/Wi-Fi/AP

Step 1: Connect Your Wireless Adapter:

Here, I will be using TP-LINK TL-WN822Nv3 Wireless Adapter.

Step 2: Host a Network:

Copy this in a notepad and save it as Host.bat (this will create a batch file)
You can also go to network setting and then create an Ad-Hoc network, but that doesn't work in Windows 8 , So:
@echo off
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=D.I.E key=diediedie keyUsage=temporary
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

(don't paste these lines "----")

  • SSID is the name of hosted network.
  • KEY is the password/passphrase.

Step 3: Open the Batch File:


If an error like this appears: "Cannot host network, device or resource busy...." Inform me in the Comments section.

Step 4: Grant It Internet Access:

  • Open Control Panel.
  • Go to Network and Internet.
  • Then Network and Sharing Center.
  • At the left side/pane, click on Change adapter settings.
  • You should see a Local Area Connection* 13 (D.I.E) this is your hosted network and you should also see a Wi-Fi (TP-Link... for me) connection
  • If you don't see a Local Area Connection... Then:
  1. Press Windows Key + R, type devmgmt.msc in the Run dialog box and hit Enter, this should open Device Manager.
  2. In the Device Manager window, expand Network adapters, from the list pick the microsoft virtual adapter, right click and select ENABLE.
  3. Then follow this guide again.
  • Now using your Wireless Adapter, connect to a network (a hacked network which you want to extend it's Range)
  • I have a list of hacked APs in my locality:

I will use the first one's internet connection.

After SUCCESSFUL connection, get back to Network Connections window.

  • Right Click on the Wi-Fi connection, then select Properties.
  • Go to sharing tab, then check the two check boxes.
  • Choose Local Area Connection* 13 (or other) under the Home Networking Connection.
  • Click OK.


  • You have successfully extended the range of the Hacked AP.
  • There you go your new Wi-Fi!
  • REMEMBER TO CONNECT TO YOUR HOSTED NETWORK (D.I.E.) instead of connecting to hacked AP of-course.
  • Also you will have to keep your PC on, you can change the settings of the wireless adapter so that it does not turn off when PC goes to SLEEP.


Keep using your Neighbour's Wi-Fi for free, always, forever, no connection delays or timeouts.
Keep your android connected to it. Use it as much as you can, it's yours.

Thank You!

Nice post how does this actually work and can I do this on Linux?

Hello Buckeroo,

This works by, extending a router's range with a high range wireless adapter, so that other devices like phones etc which don't have a good range can connect to the adapter instead of the poor ranged router

Yes, it works on Linux but why would you wana do that?
Edit: See the 1st picture in this guide.

So bear with me here , what I'm getting is that the wireless adapter acts like an AP but its internet is accessed through the actual router? So its kinda like a rogue AP.

I usually hack with linux

Yes exactly!

However, this guide doesn't tell how to hack etc. Instead it tells what to do after hacking an AP, actually, how to efficiently exploit it.

Anytime Buckeroo!
