    BAD_POOL_CALLER error trying to use windows 8.1 laptop as a WiFi hotspot.

    Dwilliams99

      The title explains the question pretty well. Anytime I try to use my windows laptop as a WiFi hotspot, it ends up crashing about 30 seconds in and I end up getting a BAD_POOL_CALLER error. I am currently using the Intel Dual Band Wireless driver recommended from the Asus website (which is my brand of computer). I have tried using the most recent version from the Intel website, but it ends up causing a different error all together (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION if I remember correctly). I've tried factory resetting my computer on two different occasions and tried a couple different versions of the driver with no luck. As of now, all my drivers are fully up to date (with the exception of the Wireless driver since I'm using the one the Asus site recommends). Does anyone have an idea on how I can fix this?
