MAC address question - WiFi hotspot won't allow full access to internet?

Hi, I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus and have set up wireless hotspot. However, when I connect my laptop to it, I have only limited access. Is this because I have a MAC address on my phone and the laptop is not authorized to connect? If that is the case, how do I fix it?

WiFi printing from phone, laptop, while maintaining WiFi connection to internet?

Here's my equipment. I have an older linksys router (connected to my printer and desktop-which is not WiFi capable), laptop capable of WiFi, WiFi capable printer (canon), and Galaxy S4 phone (which is my I-Net connection).

I usually tether my phone to my laptop and when I want to print I connect via cat 5e cable to the router (but cannot leave it connected without interfering with I-net). I want to print from laptop and phone to printer wirelessly, but I still want to be able to connect my desktop to the printer via router (cat 5e wired). so basically I need two networks, one wired and one WiFi, and the WiFi needs to include my inet connection on my phone. been trying to figure this out on my own but think I hit a wall.

Hi! How can I see the password of my hotspot? I don't remember it, and I have to connect a new laptop?

Hi! How can I see the password of my hotspot? I don't remember it, and I have to connect it with my new laptop.

If you are connecting your laptop to a router, then you will need to reset your router and reconfigure it. Unless you have written it down on a sheet of paper or in a file, you cannot see the password anywhere. The tutorial on resetting the router can be found here (click this link).

If you are checking the password on your mobile smartphone, then you will need to press the home button. Then, tap on "Apps" > "Settings" > "More.." > "Wireless & Networks" > "Tethering & portable hotspot" > "Portable WiFi hotspot". Check "Show password" to see the WiFi password.
