Windows 10: Using laptop as mobile hotspot sometimes internet does not connect
Using laptop as mobile hotspot sometimes internet does not connect
So currently I do not have a router available (I have a wired connection to the internet) but I want to be able to check emails on mobile through wifi. I found a link (How to Turn Your Windows PC Into a Wi-Fi Hotspot) showing how to use your laptop as a 'wifi hotspot'. When the laptop is connected to the wired connection at work and I switch on the mobile hotspot as shown in the website, I am able to connect to the internet on my mobile through my laptop. However, this does not work at my home.
I would appreciate any help given to solve this problem.

Running any kind of security software?
Yes, I have an antivirus running. But I use the same laptop to connect at work and at home.

And that antivirus is what company's? There are third party software to allow you to setup a device as a Bridge for letting devices use the Wifi as a connection. If you do a search on here, you will find the threads, along with the Tutorial.
I'm having a similar sort of issue. I was using my laptop as a wifi hotspot for my chromecast and it was working initially, however now my chromecast can't seem to find the network I created. Windows informs me that I'm 'sharing connection over the 5 GHz network band' and that this might be causing some devices trouble connecting to the network. Does anyone know how to configure it so that it shares over a 2.4 GHz band instead? Thank you!
