Why you want to use your Windows PC as a mobile hotspot for your smartphone or smart devices, rather than the smartphone or smart devices to connect direct to the Internet?
Well a few scenarios include 1) you have only limited Internet/mobile data quota on your smartphone so you prefer as much as possible to connect to other source of Internet, 2) there’s no Wi-Fi connection nearby and only LAN connection, so you plug your Windows PC to LAN connection and share the Internet to your smartphone / smart devices via mobile hotspot, 3) want to use Windows PC as Wi-Fi repeater, because the Wi-Fi router doesn’t reach your smartphone / smart device, 4) Your PC has bigger data plan than your smartphone, so you want to make use of it. I’m sure there are other valid scenarios on why you want to use Windows PC as a mobile hotspot.
Here’s how to use your Windows PC as a mobile hotspot
|The steps written here are tested on:|
a) Latest Windows – at the time this article is written is Windows 11 Pro Insider Preview Build 22543.rs_prerelease. In you are also using Windows and would like to install Windows 11, check the link here to get them installed: Getting Windows 11 and installing on your Computer at JILAXZONE.
Should you are using different version of Windows, the steps may be slightly different but should not deviate too much. Anyway, in case you have questions / issues, feel free to put them down on the comment section down below, I’ll be more than happy to help you.
1) On your Windows PC, click the Start button and search “Settings”. Click on “Settings” to open the Settings window.
2) Under Settings window, go to Network & internet > Mobile hotspot.
3) Under Mobile hotspot window, configure the following:
a) On Share my Internet connection from, choose the internet connection you want to share.
b) On Share over, choose either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Since nowadays smartphone and smart devices have Wi-Fi, then recommended is to share over Wi-Fi. However if you have device that has no Wi-Fi option but Bluetooth only, then choose Bluetooth instead.
c) On Properties, you can optionally edit the Network name, password and network band. You can leave all default in case all default settings are ok.
4) Turn on Mobile hotspot by toggling the switch to ON.
5) Once Mobile hotspot turned on, you can configure the Power saving option. Turn on to enable Power saving, turn off to disable Power saving. I would recommend to turn off Power saving if you are using Windows PC that’s always connection to wall socket.
Once Mobile hotspot is turned on, now it’s time for your smartphone or other smart devices to connect to the Mobile hotspot, configure the device’s Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to connect to the Mobile hotspot.
