    I have this problem quite sometimes, but this time I can't handle it.
    So, I have an HP Laptop with Windows 10 on it. I have several times, almost everyday using this Mobile Hotspot feature, I usually connect my Android Samsung A3 2016 easily.

    Today, I connected my Samsung to my HP Laptop Mobile Hotspot, and it worked just fine.
    Suddenly my laptop slept and when awoke, I found that my Samsung lost its connection to the mobile hotspot. Then I tried to see, and the Mobile Hotspot turned off.
    I tried to turn it on again, and it on.
    I then tried to connect my Samsung, but can't.
    It said "failed to obtain IP address".
    I keep trying and still can't connect, and my Samsung always try to connect.
    Then I turned the mobile hotspot off. and turned it on again. And still cant connect.
    I turned the Wi-Fi off, and turned it on again, nothing.
    I turned my Samsung Wi-Fi off, and on, and tried to connect, and still can't connect.
    I turned my Samsung off, and on, and tried to connect, still nothing.
    I opened the setting of my mobile hotspot, and I found the shared connection status is Internet.
    I tried troubleshoot, and nothing.

    So, anyone has idea what's going on? :(

    By the way, I also have tried to use "hostednetwork" setting, and I also can't connect my Android to it. I have used hostednetwork before the "Mobile Hotspot" feature came on Windows 10.

    did u try another phone to connect it? if it caused by the system, re-setting the hotspot in you laptop. I dont mean just turn on/off, resetting the hotspot. It seems the IP address' wrong. But can't exclude the problem of your Samsung.
