  1. Mobile Hotspot Issues


    Let's start from the beginning. I enable mobile hotspot on my laptop. I get my phone to connect to the shared internet connection I just created. It takes a lot of time trying to connect, and at the end ''Failed to obtain IP Adress'' appears on my mobile phone. Before you suggest anything I am a computer genius I know almost everything there is to know about settings and related stuff. I have enabled ''Allow other devices to connect'' and everything. So I dug deeper in my computer's settings searched every ''Permissions'' and almost everything related to the shared connection. My phone can't connect, even though my tablet can and pretty much any other device in the house. My phone is the only device that cannot.




    Here's a challenge for you guys.

    Have fun!

    :)

  2. 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.

  3. Mobile hotspot??

    Hi,

    Seeing other Wi-Fi range on your device is normal, especially, other devices that are configured for mobile hotspot. To provide you the appropriate steps that can resolve your concern, we'd like to ask the following:

    • Where did you see the Wi-Fi name and password? A screenshot of it is highly appreciated.
    • Does your mobile hotspot name and password is also shown on it?
    • Are you getting any connection issues on your mobile hotspot?

    Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.

    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.
