Your phone needs to be connected to the mobile network for tethering to work. You cannot use your phone's WiFi connection with your Laptop. If your phone is connected to the mobile network and tethering still doesn't work, you will need to call your carrier to make sure that you're paying for tethering. Some carriers don't include tethering as a part of your plan and you will have to pay extra. If tethering still won't work for you, you'll need to take your device in for repairs, as it sounds like your WiFi chip is experiencing issues.

Will tethering always work between a tethered cell and WiFi laptop?

I'm purchasing a refurbished laptop for someone but she has no WiFi and we decided she can use her cell which has tethering. I attempted to purchase a refurbished Lenovo, but store told me it will not work for this model. I thought if tethering capabilities are available, and if the laptop has WiFi, it would work. Are there obvious reasons a laptop will not accept tethering?

Hi There, how to connect Galaxy S4 as a hotspot to a Lenovo MIIX 510 laptop/tablet (with Windows 10)?

Could not connect my phone to a hotspot to the laptop for hrs... I did manage with a nexus. The Galaxy S4 would not share the password or give a code for connection. I was in a location with no WiFi. Can a Galaxy S4 be set up (like you making the name and the password)?. The Nexus phone had that and connected to the computer but the Galaxy S4 just gave the name no password. I have tried: I have tried the method described in the article and got so far as to find the phone, however, no password. I think it was caused by: I think the Galaxy S4 was not setting up properly and I am wondering if in this case, one could set up the phone
