    Hello, all.

    I have the Lumia 900 and have the 5GB data plan with hotspot. The hotspot works great, however, if there is no wifi activity for 5 minutes, it turns itself off. Does anyone know how to prevent this from turning off? I use this with my tablet and the tablet periodically polls for updates every 60 minutes or so, but by then the hotspot is off!

    Thanks.

    At this time you can't change this interval. The 5 minute timeout is by design to conserve battery.

    Is anyone else having trouble getting the wifi to connect to the internet?

    My device will find the hotspot, but then not a connection to the internet. FWIW, I updated the cellular data APN/WAP data settings per that video...wondering if I shouldn't have done that? hopefully the update will fix it.

    Hmm. I wasn't having trouble before I was hit with the data issue, but haven't tried to tether since I did get hit by it. I'll have to test it later. My tablet hasn't been charged in a few days and finally died on me this morning. Oops.

    I'll try later and let you know.

    ah hmm yeah, looks like it's working now. funny it still shows an x next to the wifi on my tablet, but then was loading pages. i'm in a sh*tty spot for cellservice though, could just be that it's too slow to consider it fully connected right here.

    thanks!
