  1. Can't share cellular Internet over WiFi


    I have a Thinkpad T450s with Sierra wireless with "unlimited bandwidth" contract, but sharing over WiFi doesn't let Internet connection. How the can I mask the shared WiFi that makes the celular believe that only the laptop is connected?

    Hello
    Jonathan
    ,

    Certain features may not be available even after upgrading your device due to hardware limitations, region, mobile operator and so on. You can try to resolve the issue by doing the following:

    • Enable Data connection by going to Settings > Mobile network/Cellular > Data connection > On.
    • Disable the WiFi connection by going to Settings > WiFi > Off.
    • Restart your phone.
    • Activate Internet Sharing by going to Settings > Internet sharing > On.

    Let us know what happens after doing the said troubleshooting steps.

    Is it possible to share internet connection via remote desktop?

    RDP is not capable of Internet sharing, so you can't share Internet using RDP with standard applications. There are many way to share Internet from a Windows box to another one. I suggest you to use VPN. You should do following steps:

    1. Run VPN Server on your server with unlimited internet access
    2. Connect to VPN server from your limited computer

    Hello Graham,

    We regret the inconvenience and we also appreciate the time and effort you have put in to resolve the issue. Let me assist you.

    Before we proceed further, let us know a few more details on the below questions.


    • What is the make and model of the laptop you are using?

    • Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue? Is it an abrupt issue?

    • Did you verify if the Internet connection Services is running?

    • Are you normally connect to internet even when the network sharing fails?

    • Do have any System Restore point set in Windows prior to the issue?

    We also need which of the following cases of network sharing applies to your case:

    1. One laptop using its Ethernet connection for Internet access and its WiFi adapter to broadcast.

    2. One laptop that is connected to the Internet through a mobile USB modem and broadcasts the wireless network through its WiFi adapter.

    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to check if the following steps help to resolve the issue.

    Step-1. Disable wi-fi adapter.

    Step-2. Enable it again.

    Step-3. Create wi-fi hot spot again.

    Step-4. Now share network connection from where internet is connected to wi-fi hotspot adapter.

    Write to us with the updated status and the required information related to Internet connection Sharing in Windows, for us to be able to assist you further.

    Thank You.
