I have try to share my Samsung note 10.1 (Model Number : GT-N8000) portable hotspot last night but it fail. After that, i cannot access to internet via data network mode(the 3G/H+ sign disappear next to my signal meter ) but the Wi-FI is functioning.

My tablets details are: Model Number: GT-N8000 Android Version: 4.0.4 Baseband version: N8000XXLGA Kernal Version: 3.0.15-861995-user se.infra@SEP-118#1 Build number: IMM76D.N8000XXALGA

If anyone has an idea why this would happen, please give me a shout. It's so frustrating having no data connection for the most of my day.

Regards, May seng

  • Have you already tried a reboot? Maybe some services got "confused", which a reboot might solve. In the worst case (if there's no better answer and you cannot wait any longer), a factory-reset would be your last ressort...

  • "it fail": what exactly happened? Was there an error message? Could you see the hotspot from another device? Could you connect to it?

it seem like the line provider problem to me..

try to check the setting-more-mobile network-access point name

check the setting there..or download new access point name..

if this not fix the problem.. u need to call the provider line to help u fix the problem.



There might be a number of explanations,

First you might have set your handset to ignore 3G networks when connected to a wi-fi connection.To check this, try deactivating the wi-fi and see what happens. If the problem is still there, then check whether use 2G network is enabled, and disable it. try enabling 3G go to applications icon-settings-more settings-mobile networks-mobile data

if there's a tick on the mobile data, then its supposed to work. So switch off the wi-fi first and try whether it will work.hope you get to solve this let me know if you do.

It might also be a provider problem like stated by some, either check the APN settings with the provider, or try getting a friend to show you the APN settings. You could also try getting a different microSIMcard to see whether it will work because that might also be a problem.
