  1. Hotspot sharing not working


    Good Afternoon,



    After the last windows update, I've been finding impossible to share my pc internet connection with my phone.



    Whenever my phone connects to the hotspot I get the message that there isn't any internet connection, and in the hotspot settings I can't see my phone being connected to it



    So I selected the network that I want to share the connection, selected properties ->sharing and there I cannot change the network that is already selected (to put the one I want) and I don't know why.



    I tried multiple times to update all the drivers for the adapter and for the Wi-Fi board. I allowed the sharing in the change advance sharing settings and I even disabled windows firewall.



    Does anyone know why or what should I do?



    Thank you in advance for your help

    :)

  3. 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.
