Users are able to share their Wi-Fi connection with other devices, such as smartphones and tablets, by making use of the hotspot function on their device. When connecting to the internet, host devices can do so using either Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or a cellular data connection.
An update for Windows was distributed by Microsoft earlier this past week. Following the installation of that update by Microsoft, a previously undiscovered issue with the Wi-Fi hotspot feature was found.
If you require a hotspot, it looks that deleting the update is the best course of action. Microsoft has not yet made available a patch for the issue, but we hope that will change shortly.
