Dear Concern, Good day!! Need your help regarding Mobile Hotspot issue. Windows 10 Mobile Hotspot on my PC is not working. After activating the hotspot on my PC I can find the signal on my android mobile. But whenever I try to connect with that Hotspot signal from my phone with proper password, I failed to get any connection. It says "Failed to obtain IP address". Desperately need your help. Please advise what I can do.

Which Android phone do you have, and what version of Android is it running?

I can walk you through adjusting the Advanced settings for the Wifi network your phone emits, and make sure it's fast, compatible and has a new password that will work.

Then, I'll walk you through what we can do in Windows 10 if the above doesn't work.
