Hotspots Save The Day

It’s 8:30 a.m. and you have a project due at 5:00 pm later that day. You decide to go to your local coffee shop to get away from the numerous distractions found inside your apartment. You take a sip out of your piping hot coffee and begin to set up camp. 

Scrolling over to the Wi-Fi tab, you wait to be connected. Anxiously watching the Wi-Fi load, a bead of sweat drips down your face. Suddenly, similar to what you’ve seen in your nightmares, an exclamation sign and yellow triangle appear signaling no signal. “This is not good,” you think to yourself. 

You’ve already spent too much time trying to connect to Wi-Fi and moving to another coffee shop would put finishing your project on time in jeopardy. Just as you were about to give up, you recall a trick your good friend once told you: how to use a personal hotspot with Wi-Fi.

  1. First you’ll want to head over to “Settings” on your phone.
  2. You will either see “Personal Hotspot” on its own or you will have to look under “Cellular” where you will see “Personal Hotspot.”
  3. Tap “Personal Hotspot” and slide it on.
  4. Create a password from your mobile device.
  5. Remember to know the name of your mobile device (Example: Elyse’s iPhone).
  6. On your computer, scroll over to Wi-Fi networks and click the name of your mobile device
  7. Enter the password for the hotspot and enjoy!
