    Is this works with any HW? In my case, after clicking on Use as Hotspot it asked me to disconnect from xxx (current WiFi connection) (this is expected and fine) but then revert to using the normal mode of connecting to the existing WiFo network. I am speculating that it does that because my HW does not support being an Access Point. But this is just speculation on my part….

    I’m also trying to share my wired connection as a WiFi (infrastructure) hotspot with my Android phone, but when I followed the instructions as given for the last picture, it starts showing the “trying to connect to WiFi” moving symbol.

    It then asks for the password again, as if it is trying to connect to a WiFi, even though I’m not asking it to connect to a WiFi, but rather, want it to be a WiFi hotspot.

    After that, it just disconnects, never having set up the WiFi hotspot. I’m using a HP Pavilion g4.

    Any ideas? Your help is appreciated. Thanks.
