    Networking two computers and sharing files using iphone hotspot


    Hello,

    I'm trying to find a way to provide two computers an internet connection through iphone hotspot, and share files between them at the same time.

    Does anyone have any tips for how to do this?

    I have had some success with:

    iphone's internet --> Personal hotspot via usb to Win 10 --> "Mobile hotspot" through win10 to share connection via wifi, but as soon as I start to transfer files, I get bsod errors.

    There's got to be a way to do this... Right? I cannot seem to be able to set a static ip and still have internet enabled.

    Hoping I'm just missing an easy solution.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    :)

    Personal Hotspot on iPhone not detected on Thinkpad T480s

    I used to be able to connect my iPhone 6s (iOS 13) to my Thinkpad T480s (Win 10 Pro, 1903, latest updates) via USB-C and use the personal hotspot on the iPhone to connect to the internet. This worked without any issues for several years through several upgrades of iOS and Windows.
    Now I switched to an iPhone 11 Pro (iOS 13) and the T480s does not detect the iPhone's personal hotspot any more. Personal hotspot is turned on on the iPhone 11 Pro. The T480s sees the iPhone and I can browse its content.
    The personal hotspot on the iPhone 6s (also iOS 13) is also not detected any more since I updated the following Apple software on the T480s to the current versions:
    • AppleApplicationSupport64
    • AppleMobileDeviceSupport64
    • AppleSoftwareUpdate
    Am I missing something here?
