My laptop is not accessing my phones hotspot internet?

Actually, I'm connecting my laptop to my phone's(XIAOMI Note3) hotspot which has access to 4G. When my laptop is connected it shows "you've no access to the internet". THEN I GO TO COMMAND PROMPT AND TYPE COMMANDS . "ipconfig/release" and "ipconfig/renew". NOW MY LAPTOP GETS ACCESS TO INTERNET?. What To Do?. WAITING>>>. It's different because every time I have to type CMD commands to access my phone's internet/not only my phone but all the other phones hotspots but there is no problem with WiFi routers? I have tried: TYPING COMMANDS LIKE "ipconfig/release" and "ipconfig/renew" so it connects after typing those commands in my command prompt. I think it was caused by: I don't know.may be something that I don't know.and also I tried to know but I'm not getting any info regarding this

Laptop doesn't connect to mobile hotspot, what could be the issue?

My laptop was always able to connect to my mobile hotspot but after I did a factory reset on my phone, my laptop doesn't connect. The laptop finds my mobile device and tries to connect but then it says its taking longer than usual to connect and at the end, it says its unable to connect. My laptop used to connect to my mobile hotspot but after factory reset on my phone, it doesn't connect anymore. I have tried: Troubleshooting using the windows troubleshooter, I always try to reset my phone, but other devices connect to my phone except for laptops that have windows as their OS. I keep trying to configure the network settings on my phone. I think it was caused by: The factory reset probably changed something. Because I don't know what else could have caused this problem.

How do I install a driver on my laptop so that it recognize my blackberry hotspot?

I am using a blackberry phone to connect my new laptop to the web. It seems like I need to install the driver to recognize my hotspot. Every other network can be seen and my hotspot is also used for another laptop and I also use it for my other phone when credit is out. All details are stated in the previous box. The laptop is new and working perfectly fine with other network and my phone's hotspot works with other devices. So I just need to install a driver onto my laptop. Anyway, you may help? I have tried: Nothing. I have just looked around and I have been doing some research. I think I might just have to connect the phone to the laptop and see if it'll trigger something. I think it was caused by: Probably just that my blackberry is a little too old fashion for Windows 10 or that I need a driver to install my blackberry hotspot or something? I am going to try it if I don't hear from you soon enough. Thanks
