Hello and Happy new year to everybody,
: Samsung RV509, i3, 300GB HDD, 3GB Ram, Dual boot Windows7 & LM 17 cinnamon qiana.
Mobile phone specifications
: Nokia Asha 500
Two days ago, I have done a re-installation. Before re-installation, I was actually sharing my Laptop internet connection with my phone, without any problems. Here below is how I used to connect then;
I had not configured or done anything to setup a wifi connection. Everytime I wanted to share my internet connection with my phone, I used to click on the
wifi icon in the tray and click on 'network settings', then click on the 'Use as Hotspot...' button, I used get the security code displayed and another notification that wifi is connected. Then I would start wifi on my phone and when prompted for password I used to enter the security code and I would be connected immidiately.
Now this is not happening. My laptop shows that it is connect to the wifi, but it does not get detected by the phone. I thought the problem may be in my phone. And so I backed up everything on my phone and reset it and updated the software, but still it says no network found!
I searched over the net and did some analysis of the status of my wifi connection through the Terminal.
I do not understand even one word of that output. Here below is the output;
During the re-installation I did one change, I don't know if that is the culprit or not. I installed a new driver for my wifi, I suppose. I am not sure,
. But I don't know how to revert back, if at all I have installed a new one!
Please kindly help me in sharing my Laptop internet connection with my phone.
Thank you & Regards
