    mobile hotspot worked perfectly, 2hrs later doesn't work


    Using Windows 10 Laptop mobile hotspot to get internet on Samsung phone.

    I turned it on at 8am connected and surfed on phone, easy. then i turned it off. i came back at 10am and turned it on, but now the phone doesn't show it in available wifi connections anymore.

    what could possibly have gone wrong?

    :)

  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. Windows 10 Mobile hotspot not working because of firewall


    Hi!

    Im currently only able to have ethernet internet, but im also trying to share this connection through windows 10 "mobile hotspot" to give wifi to my other devices.

    The problem is when my firewall is on, the mobile hotspot doesnt work but as soon as I turn it off it works perfectly fine.

    How do I allow windows 10 mobile hotspot through the firewall?

    Thank you very much in advance!
