enter image description heremy laptops hotspot is on,but doesn't show laptops name in my mobile wifi settings.Any one knows??what the problem is?.

  • It's not enabled in the picture. It appears on but on the left column it says it's disconnected. That's happens sometimes when it didn't create a hotspot correctly.
