I have latest KDE Neon, with Plasma 5 desktop. For sharing my wired internet to other devices via wifi, I have followed this easy guide: Create Wi-fi Hotspot Using KDE Plasma 5, but with an Android smartphone, I cannot see the new created SSID.

With this Android phone, I have connected successfully with many wifi networks. I don't suspect on it.

How can I diagnose the problem? Misconfiguration, KDE bug, wifi driver bug or problem with the card manufacturer?.

UPDATE

Result of ip addr show command: 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever inet6 ::1/128 scope host valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 2: enp4s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 1000 .... 3: wlp2s0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN group default qlen 1000 link/ether 78:92:9c:01:37:9c brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

Number 1 is loopback, number 2 is ethernet and number 3 is regular wifi, and is unconnected. But wifi hotspot doesn't appear.

  • Is this still an issue? I have the same OS as well so I can test this in the next few days – DeveloperACE Jun 23 '18 at 22:16
