    Phone is not detecting Windows 10 hotspot


    Until recently, I have been able to connect my phone to my Lenovo laptop's mobile hotpot without issue.Now, when I turn on my hotspot, the hotspot name will not display on my phone. I can locate the hotspot in my phone's list of saved networks, but when I try to connect that way, I get a message that I'm out of range, even when my phone is right next to my laptop. I have also tried connecting with my old phone and the hotspot name will not appear there either, so I am deducing that it is a problem with the laptop.Things that I have tried so far:Restarting my computer and my phoneChanging the n

    Windows not discovering mobile hotspot

    I think you have already answered both of the other points I would have checked so I have nothing else useful to suggest -
    - Your computer can detect other 2.4GHz networks/hotspots
    - Other computers can detect your phone's 2.4GHz hotspot

    I have deliberately altered some Windows settings to hide unwanted local networks [not just stop any connection to them but hide them from appearing in the list of available networks]. But you have not been taking similar measures or you would have said so.

    As a final check, see if your phone's mobile hotspot appears in the list of detected networks using
    NirSoft WiFiInfoView

    Best of luck,
    Denis

    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?
