My phone has two sims both with large data caps that I'd like to use. I use my phone as a wireless access point for my laptop.
To switch between SIM 1/2 for data, I have to go to
settings-->wireless networks --> more-->mobile networks
and then set the network mode. The one which I wish to use for internet goes to GSM/WCDMA/LTE auto and the other 'just phone calls' I switch to GSM only. I then go to
settings-->wireless networks --> dual sim cards --> data network
and set "Sim card to use" to sim 1 or 2.
This seems to work fine for access data on the phone. However, when I'm connected on my laptop via the hotspot, I only get internet access on SIM 2. With SIM 1, the computer wifi connects but says "no internet access". When I run the windows troubleshooting wizard, it says "failed to find DNS". I set my DNS to 126.96.36.199... but no joy.
I've also tried to connect via macs and Linux boxes with the same result. I think that the issue is in the droid.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance :-)
