    Win10 computer & Hotspot on Android phone - Security Key rejected


    Windows 10 Home 64 bit
    Ver 1809

    Greetings,

    Please forgive the brief description in my title but there was extremely limited room permitted. However that is basically the issue. I have a Win 10 Lenovo s145 computer and trying to use the mobile hotspot in my LG K30 Android Phone. The phone activates its signal with no problem and the computer sees it. Tapping the Connect button produces a field which asks for Network Security Key. Entering the key results in "The network security key isn't correct. Try again" or Simply "Unable to connect". When I go to Settings> Mobile hotspot on the computer the status is what you see on the attached image. As you see the original security key was a little weird with that pipe character and I changed it also hoping a new key would solve the problem.

    Any help greatly appreciated. I urgently needed the hotspot service earlier and ran into this issue.

    Thank you for your time,

    EW

    :)

    Win10 computer & Hotspot on Android phone - Security Key rejected

    Is there an app 4 Win10 to click a phone # and dial it on my android?

    Hi there

    about half way in this article shows how I think you can use Windows to do this.

    How to Make Calls, Send and Receive SMS From Your Computer Using an Android Phone | NDTV Gadgets360.com


    The relevant bit is this piece I think

    It's not perfect but it will do what you need. You need to install on the PHONE as well -- this isn't clear from the documentation but it does work and you DON'T NEED THE PREMIUM (i.e PAY) piece.

    .......................
    You can also initiate a call using AirDroid on your PC, but the call isn't shared with your computer. The PC is only useful as a phone dialer.

    1.Click the phone icon at the top of the page, next to the search bar on web.airdroid.com.


    2.Dial the number in the keypad. As you start typing the number, a list of contacts with similar numbers will show up on the right. So you can also click the contact you want to call.


    3.Click the blue Call button. Now you will have to switch to your Android phone to speak to the person. This is an unfortunate limitation and we suggest that you use a Bluetooth headset paired with your phone as a workaround.


    4.AirDroid doesn't let you receive calls via the computer either, but you can reject calls with a text message. When someone calls, you will see a pop-up in the browser window. Click Reject to disconnect the call or Reject with message to send a text message to the caller.
