Some users have had a hard time connecting to an Android Hotspot with their Windows-powered laptops.
Many a time, this hotspot and WiFi issues are caused by third party applications installed or updated on your devices. An example of such an application is the Babel font.
Steps to fix hotspot and WiFi issue
1. Go to your phone settings and
navigate your way to “Apps” and tap on it.
2. Now tap on the hamburger icon (three dots) on the screen beside the settings symbol and a pop up will appear.
3. Tap on “reset app preferences”.
4. Reboot your device and turn on your hotspot. Repeat step for both android phones.
If this does not fix it, and you own a tecno or infinix phone, go to “Settings” locate and tap on “Apps” and tap on show system apps and reset “OOBE” and Babel fonts/font manager.
