Mobile Hotspot not working

2018-07-04, 16:33 PM

I'm using lenovo k8 note. Recently i upgraded my device to android 8.00 version. Since then, whenever I turning on my mobile wifi hotspot it started and also I can connect to that. 

But it shows "connected, no internet" I tried my best pls give some solutions through updates.

Thanks & Regards,

Dass.A

Re: Lenovo K8 note hotspot not detecting in Windows 10 after Oreo update

I tried it, but that didn't help me. Still the system doesn't detect my Lenovo K8 Plus Hotspot.
I also checked other devices were detecting mobile hotspot, but System is not detecting. This issue started after the OREO update

Go to your APN settings. Click on the one you have active and look for APN type. In there type the words "default,dun" without quotes then hit ok. This should fix the no internet problem

Internet connection is there.
But when I "Switch on Hotspot", other mobile phones around me are detecting it but my Laptop is not detecting it. I did reset my network connecction, deleted all passwords from System but still It is not detecting hotspot which is switched on from my phone whereas it can detect all other connections.

I tried reseting, changing names and passwords, nothing helped me!

Yea ive been trying to get lenovo to fix that issue as well for a while now. Im still having that issue with no permanent fix. From what Ive seen, the problem is area related. Something like if the place you live has low signal coverage or more rural than urban. You might get it to detect on your PC if you go closer to town. That's what happens for me. But i did find a temporary fix which I posted it on page 5 using PDAnet. It has alot of steps but its really simple once you start. The only thing is you'd have to find a good cracked foxfi key unless you wanna purchase the app for about $3 lol

But I use my System sitting less than a meter away with mobile in my hand.
Other devices with are even at next room detect the hotspot, also the system detects hotspot with are in next room but doesn't detect the hotspot from this phone which is kept next to it.
I will try the option you said though, also please do let me know if you find any other fix.
Thanks.

Lenovo K8 Plus Hotspot is not detecting in windows 10 after Oreo update

2018-07-13, 18:52 PM

The Lenovo K8 Plus hot spot is detecting and working fine in mobiles phones, but in laptops k8 plus hotspot is not detecting. I too tried different laptops, K8 plus hotspot is not showing in the wifi list. But USB tethering is working fine. I called Lenovo customer care (1800 419 6686), they asked me todo network reset, reboot, Hard reset the phone and factor restore. But nothing helps, Still hotspot is not working and there is no way to restore to Android 7
