    Hey!
    I've been having this issue ever since I got windows 10. Whenever I use my smartphone to create a Wi-Fi hotspot for my notebook it works perfectly for some time and then it just stops working... When it stops working I'm not able to find any other wi-fi network, and I have to reboot my system in order to return to normal. I have all drivers up to date and I've tried with 3 different notebooks (all with Windows 10) and 2 different smartphones (both Samsung S6). The issue repeats always.

    There is a way to force this issue by turning off the android hotspot while using it in Windows.

    Can someone plz help me with this? I don't know what happens.

    how about a different phone model? You used the s6 both times so I'm thinking the issue is with the way the s6 handles hotspots
