Key Takeaways

  • Ensure your smartphone (from which you're sharing the hotspot connection) is connected to the internet, your data package hasn't expired, and the hotspot is enabled on your phone.
  • Stop your device from connecting to other networks. To do that, go to Settings > Network and Internet > Wi-Fi > Show Available Networks. Expand each available network, click on the "ⓘ" symbol, and uncheck the box next to "Connect Automatically When in Range".
  • Try forgetting other available networks except for your primary hotspot connection. Go to Settings > Network and Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Known Networks. Then, click the "Forget" button next to each network, leaving only the one you intend to use.
