WIFi hotspot - fernando_c_m - 07-08-2020

I am not sure when this stated working.
I checked yesterday and the menu entry was enabled, so I gave it a try.
It worked flawlessly. I connected three debian devices and did apt-get upgrades. Not once the connection was dropped and speed was around 1Mb/s. With my previous android based phone this was a nightmare: connections were dropped randomly, download speed was sluggish.
Again thank you for making this real.

For me the gotcha was having to disable bluetooth to get the menu entry working. It's a bit confusing because there's no warning or indicator to tell you this is the case, but once I figured that out it has been working perfectly for the last week or so.

Ok, thanks. It could be. I think bluetooth was disabled on my PP to save battery time, but I didn't bother to check, if it was really so, or only a UI toggle button with no function at all.
