    Xbox wont connect to my hotspot

    Well, your console has to connect to the Hotspot. The Hotspot only provides WiFi, and does not connect to devices itself.

    Set up your Hotspot to be visible. If you use a smartphone as Hotspot, be aware that you can NOT use Bluetooth as tethering method. The phone needs to use WiFi to share it's cellular connection.

    Some modern phones are able to bridge a WiFi connection, but usually, if you set up a WiFi hotspot on your phone, the connection to WiFi gets disconnected, and the phone connects to the Internet via it's cellular network, and shares that connection via WiFi.

    Go to your console's network settings and let it search for WiFi networks. Does your Hotspot SSID (Network Name) show up in the list?

    If not, check your phone settings.

    If the SSID shows up on the console, connect to it, and provide the Password that the phone provides (or that you set up in your phone for the Hotspot).

    Depending on your cellular data plan, it might not be permitted to use Laptops, PCs or consoles via cellular hotspot. In that case contact your phone provider.

    Also be aware, that multiplayer through such a hotspot is usually problematic.

    My wifi doesn't work

    Does your wifi work with all other devices other than the Xbox?

    If you think there's something wrong with the Wifi card in your console, then you can easily check it by enabling hotspot on your phone, and then use that hotspot as wifi on your console.

    playing purchased downloaded games offline

    Hello. if the console is in main mode, you don't need to connect to the internet. if you are in secondary mode if you need to logged in and be connected to the internet. a possible solution to this second scenario is to create a wifi network with the mobile
    phone and use the phone data

    Xbox Doesnt Always Connect To Home Wifi...?

    I have the same router but have no problems connecting 7 devices. How far is the console from the router? How many bars does the console wifi have? Is the console surrounded by anything?

    Xbox one app for Android phone

    Also it should connect automatically to your console as long as you have it set to Connect to your console under the Settings on the app. And make sure that both your phone and the console are on the same WiFi. This is how it will automatically recognize
    it and connect, if that's what you'd like to do. :)
