    Turning on Mobile Hotspot for wifi sharing causes browser issues


    I am on windows version 20H2, I recently had to start sharing my wifi connection from my PC to my phone, the connection is fine and everything works correctly on both ends, but when the mobile hotspot is on, if I open a web page on my PC browser I will get a (Server Not Found) Error, and when I reload it goes to the page normally. It seems very random sometimes, but I am sure it does this for every first page I open after a browser restart at least. I cleared my cache and cookies but it's still the same. Everything else is fine, and the mobile hotspot is the only new thing that I did before it happened so I'm sure it is the reason.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    :)

  2. Error "The wifi network .... didn't respond" when using PC as mobile hotspot

    Original title:- Use my PC as a mobile hotspot

    When my PC has a cellular data connection, I want to turn it into a mobile hotspot to share my connection with other devices.

    To do this I follow these steps.


    • Select the Start button, then select Settings > Network & Internet
      > Mobile hotspot.

    • Select Edit, enter a new network name and password, and then select
      Save.

    • Turn on the control under Mobile hotspot to share your cellular data connection.
    After that I enter my Password to my nokia lumia 925 phone and try to connect to my new wifi network.

    But it says "The wifi network .... didn't respond"

    • I enter my password correctly.
    • Turn of my wifi in pc

  3. Wifi turns off automatically when a device is connected to my hotspot


    Whenever a device is connected to my hotspot the wifi is turning off automatically thereby stopping the hotspot.

    I have unchecked the Power management option i.e, Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
    All driver are updated to the latest versions.

    Turning on Mobile Hotspot for wifi sharing causes browser issues

    2 wifi devices, can I use one for mobile hotspot?

    There's absolutely no need to bridge your devices in any way. You just turn Mobile Hotspot on, on any Windows 10 device with WiFi, and you are done. Both of your WiFi devices still continue to use their default network connection, while one of them is sharing its connection through the Hotspot.
