    Is it even possible to set up an wep or unprotected, mac filtered access point on win8.1 ?

    bought myself a wifi dongle so I wouldn't have to compromise security of whole network and i just noticed idiots from ms decided they know better what's good for me.

    Using tp link TL-WN721N, official software soft-ap is quite useless since it only allow wpa2 (prolly doing same thing as command line). Same goes for other third party software I've found.

    I use this to start a adhock network on windows 8.1

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=<network name> key=<passkey>

    netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    netsh wlan stop hostednetwork

    -edit-

    Paste in CMD

    I too haven't found a way to do so. Albeit a bit more of an expensive option, you might want to look into getting a router that supports a guest network running alongside your primary network.
