    : 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.

    Xbox wont connect to my hotspot

    Hi, it might have something to do with your data plan. I connected mine once with my phone which was 4G and a pretty strong connection.
