I enabled my laptop as a hotspot and connected my tablet through WiFi. Then I turned WiFi on and it shows me the network but it tells me I'm not in range.
After that it shows network disabled and poor connection. How do I get over this?
If the hotspot ssid shows in your Android device means, definitely it wont be an Ad-Hoc network. Most probably the the problem would be getting DHCP ip from your laptop. Try giving static ip to both hotspot network and your android device.
