Repeated attempts to get WIFI tethering failed, even after a reboot. I can turn on the wifi hotspot. I used these steps.
- Settings > Wireless & networks > More... > Tethering & portable hotspot > Set up Wi-Fi hotspot,
- (put in my settings - SSID, security "WPA2 PSK", and password)
- Check "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot"
At this point the hotspot turns on and is discover-able by other devices, but when they connect to the hotspot, they can't access the internet. Anyone have a solution to this? Am I doing something wrong? Need this fixed before I travel... TIA
Here's my device details:
Device Model: SGH-I897
Android version: 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
CyanogenMod version: 10.0.0-captivatemtd
EDIT: Ok, I got it working. I connected my laptop using USB tethering, which worked immediately on the first try. Once I had done that I disconnected from USB and tried enabling the portable hotspot again. This time, connected devices could use the internet via the hotspot.
Hope this helps other people.
