I have an HP Pro x2 running Windows 10 Enterprise x64. It has a Verizon SIM card and under Settings > Network & Internet > Cellular, it has
Verizon Wireless (LTE) listed as
Connected. Under Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-fi, it has the switch set to on.
Under Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Network Connections > Cellular, I've right-clicked and selected Properties > Sharing; there I've checked the box for “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection.” In its dropdown, I've selected "Wi-Fi". Current network connection is via the cellular SIM card and it works fine by itself.
Now, under Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile Hotspot, I click to turn on the hotspot, but it switches to off immediately and says:
We can't set up mobile hotspot. Turn on Wi-Fi.
The cellular network adapter info is as follows:
Manufacturer: HP Model: HP lt4211 Gobi 4G Module Firmware: T77H468.V.184.108.40.206 Network type: GSM
The SIM card doesn't have a PIN (it's blank). What am I missing? I've updated the driver for the HP Gobi Module from HP. In addition, I've modified the registry with the following changes so it allows me to have access to the hotspot feature:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Network Connections] "NC_PersonalFirewallConfig"=dword:00000001 "NC_ShowSharedAccessUI"=dword:00000001 "NC_AllowNetBridge_NLA"=dword:00000001
