  2. Windows 10 Mobile Hotspot Not working

    Hi,

    Your Bluetooth connection may be enabled which prevents you from setting up your mobile hotspot. To have this addressed, we suggest turning off the Bluetooth connection and see if you're able to set up your mobile hotspot. Follow these steps:

    • Open Settings and select Devices.
    • Click Bluetooth, then toggle it OFF.

    Once done, check if you can now turn on your computer's mobile hotspot. Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

  3. Mobile Hotspot

    We appreciate that you have tried the suggested steps above. Have you tried to connect other devices to the mobile hotspot on your PC?

    Since the issue is still the same, we suggest that you uninstall/reinstall the network adapter driver and check if this will resolve the issue. Follow the steps below:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device manager
      .

    • Locate for Network adaptor and click on it expand it.

    • Right click on the device and click on
      uninstall
      .

    • Once you are done uninstalling the driver, restart the computer. It will automatically install the generic network adapter driver.

    We can also update the network adapter driver. Skip step 3 from the above steps and right click on the device and click on update.

    Feel free to post back for any updates.

    Hi Mohammad,

    The issue that you’ve encountered when using the hotspot on your
    Windows 10 computer may be caused by some configuration or files mismatched. To sort out your concern, we suggest that you run the Internet Connections troubleshooter from the
    Control Panel. This process will automatically scan and correct the possible cause of the issue. To do this, you may follow the steps below:

    • Click Start, type Control Panel and press
      Enter
      .
    • On the Control Panel search box, type Troubleshooting and select it from the search results.
    • Click Network and Internet > Internet Connections and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.
    • After running the troubleshooter, you may check if you’re able to use the hotspot properly.

    Keep us updated about your concern for additional assistance.
