It’s smart to have a backup option for those times when your Broadband can’t keep up with demand. When speed problems arise, you can resort to using a smartphone’s hot spot feature, which turns the device’s cellular connection into a miniature Wi-Fi network.

Cellular networks are designed to handle larger amounts of users, so chances are that your smartphone’s data connection will be faster when your broadband is overwhelmed. The process is referred to as creating a mobile wireless hotspot.

HOW TO SET UP

How to Create a Mobile Hotspot with an Android Phone

To set up a mobile hotspot on your phone, follow the following steps:

1. Turn off the Wi-Fi radio.

2. Plug the phone into a power source. The mobile hotspot feature can draw a lot of power.

3. Open the Settings app. It’s found on the apps screen. Some phones may feature a Mobile Hotspot or 4G Hotspot app. If so, open it instead.

4. Touch the “More” item in the Wireless & Networks section, and then choose Tethering & Portable Hotspot.

5. Touch the box to place a check mark by the Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot or Mobile Hotspot item. The hotspot is on, but you may want to confirm some of the settings. If the hotspot doesn’t come on or the item is disabled, your phone is incapable of creating a Wi-Fi hotspot.

6. Choose the Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot item to give the hotspot a name, or SSID, and then review, change, or assign a password. Touch the fields on the Set Up Wi-Fi Hotspot screen to assign a name and password. Touch the Save or OK button to set your changes.
When the mobile hotspot is active, you see the Hotspot Active notification icon. You can then access the hotspot by using any computer or mobile device that has Wi-Fi capabilities.

NOTE: Don’t forget to turn off the mobile hotspot when you’re done using it. You can do that by removing the check.
