Hotspot is not working on FP 3

I’m using a fairphone 3 with /e/ preinstalled. I tried to set up this device as a hotspot. Allow clients to use VPN is activated but USB-Tethering is greyed out and on the overview panel for network and internet it shows “Hotspot and Tethering” is switched off.

How can I activate this function?

thank you for your purchase :slight_smile:

Could you make sure than Airplane mode is deactivated and cellular data is enabled please?

If it doesn’t work, could you provide screenshots of:

  • Settings > Network & internet
  • Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & tethering
  • Settings > Network & internet > Hotspot & tethering > Wi-Fi hotspot

Hi, thank you for the fast reply.

The airplane mode is deactivated and I can send and receive data via mobile provider.

Herr are the requested Screenshots. But I only could find two oft the three requested:

I think you didn’t notice that “WLAN-Hotspot” is clickable. That’s where you will be able to enable and configure your hotspot.
