    Hi,

    I am using Nokia Lumia 720 (OS version 8.0.10517.150) for internet sharing and have had DNS issues lately. When connecting to hotspot with my laptop I get DNS server is not responding error. Phone has data connection and I can browse the internet through phone but cant use it to share the data connection. When I connect my laptop with other wifis it works fine also so the fault must be in Lumias hotspot generation.

    Had the same problem few weeks ago but then restarting the device and changing hotspot settings helped but it does not do the job right now.

    Any ideas?

    I'm just facing the same issue on my lumia 920 with WP8.1 developers preview.
    Seams like DNS of internet sharing is not working (looks like phone is using some kind of MS DNS server, which maybe be down).
    so I changed in adapter settings DNS server from automatic selection to Google DNS:
    8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4,
    then internet sharing on my W7 laptop working like charm. Issue is I have to change it back while im connecting on my office wi-fi.
