I can't tether or hotspot on a Nexus 5

This has been an issue for awhile, but we’re in a pandemic and unfortunately the wifi isn’t working (for 2 more days at least!).

I am running /e/ on a Nexus 5, mostly everything works great, but I’m unable to share my data with my laptop via either a wifi hotspot or USB tethering. I don’t expect that this is an issue with the laptop (running Linux) because I am able to connect easily to my roommate’s wifi hotspot (which is how I am writing this!)

I’m not sure exactly where to begin with trying to fix this issue? Any pointers would be appreciated! :slight_smile:
