problem solution
a computer doesn't connect to the mobile hotspot's ipv4 or ipv6 manually select broadcast channel 4 or 6.

Note: 4 is much slower than 6

if that doesn't work:

  • check to see if it needs time to connect
  1. click on the wifi icon on the computer's task bar
  2. right click on the phone's wifi network
  3. click status
  4. check the sent bytes
  5. if it's increasing, but the received is 0, wait until the received starts increasing
  • keep switching between channel 4, 6, and auto-select (along with manually turning on and off on the computer with each switch) until the computer recognizes the internet
  • note: the hotspot will manually turn on and off, but it will need to be manually done on the computer
  • if the computer automatically connects to the hotspot, disconnect it, turn the hotspot off and then on, and then manually connect to the wifi network on the computer
  • some apps may get in the way of the computer accessing the hotspot, so turn those off and then try again with the turning on/off of every device to see if it helps.

- try removing it from all sides, even where not expected

pick out dirt with a rolled napkin or cloth corner

put everything back and try to turn on the phone
