If you have followed the instructions in the article below and your computer still can't find your phone as a hotspot do the following:

  • Make sure your computer can connect to other networks.
    • If it can, then the problem is with your phone.
    • If it cannot, then the problem is with your computer. Perhaps you don't have a WiFi card installed, or maybe the one you have has malfunctioned and it will need repairs.

I have the Samsung Note2 and all of the sudden it won't hook up with the home router. I use very little data so I opted for a 1GB data plan. Since I've done that, I can no longer access the home router. My Laptop has full strength but my phone can't access. Can You help? I have Verizon?

Hotspot Connection - ASUS One laptop (Windows 10) doesn't see Samsung Galaxy S4 (Lolipop 5.0)?

ASUS One laptop (Windows 10) doesn't see Samsung Galaxy S4 (Lolipop 5.0) hotspot. Other devices can see the hotspot, but not the Windows 10 laptop. I've done all the available Windows updates already hoping it was a driver issue, but no dice. Do you have any suggestions?. I have tried: WiFi Sense toggles on laptop (Windows 10) for visible and share device on phone (Android 5.0). I think it was caused by: Never been able to connect using Windows 10 laptop. Have connected a Windows 8.1 laptop to the same phone previously.

WiFi tethering is not working on Note2?

I have a phone bought from the US (unlocked). It is a Note2. I am in India for a few days and have bought a local SIM here. I am able to browse the Internet on the phone, but for some reason it is not allowing tethering. Is there any restriction been put or am I missing something?

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

In this case, the restriction is put by the carrier, most likely. You will need to contact the carrier to enable the tethering service.

My Samsung Note3 was set up as a mobile hotspot for my laptop nearly two years ago. It is now no longer connecting?

I now need the access I used to rely upon. My laptop no longer connects through my phone. I removed the device from my phone and from my computer, re-paired them from scratch, and now my computer will not connect. I think that perhaps it will not stop to ask me for a password, which I would expect it to do. The laptop sees the phone in my list of available wireless connection points, but when I click to connect, it quickly says it is unable to do so, and the troubleshooting section does not help. I have Windows 7 on my laptop.

Hi, My PC, Dell, can't find my phone hotspot after I upgraded to Windows 10. My phone is Lenovo vibe x2. Thanks for helping?

My PC, Dell, can't find my phone hotspot after I upgraded to Windows 10. My phone is Lenovo vibe x2. I used to be able to find and connect to the phone hotspot when I was using Windows 8. I tried updating all my drivers and still can't find the hotspot. The only time I can connect to its network is when I use Bluetooth tethering. Could you please help me out?. I have tried: Using WiFi sense and updating my drivers. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure. My Samsung Tab and other Lenovo can find the Vibe x2 hotspot without any problems. On the other hand, my PC also can find the other phone and Tab hotspot without any problems. So it seems to me that both the PC and Vibe x2 network are somehow working fine. For whatever reason, the PC just can't find the Vibe hotspot.
