Re: unable to connect to wifi hotspot on lg g5 - bluetooth tethering works

How do you do a network reset?


There is no unique APN for tethering.  Just us sp.mb.com.  If you cannot find network reset, by perusing the settings, do a search for the setting by name.  I doubt that network reset will do anything in this case as your problem is not with inability to connect to the Public Mobile network.  Could this be your issue?  Some carrier supplied phones have tethering neutered because they don't allow tethering.

@mynewhome  You should select sp.mb.com for data. When you go into the settings for sp mb.com there is a field called APN Type: 

That is where you make the change.

Don't think so, I've used this device on fido for tethering before I switched over.

@mynewhome Have you checked your client wifi's DHCP settings? Does it matches the DHCP addresses that is given out from your LG? More importantly can you ping your LG from your client computer.

@mynewhome 

I am using my LG G5 on Rogers network and I can get the WiFi hotspot.

 

Is your data work with your current APN?

If not, LG G5 needs a network reset after switching provider.

1.  Open Settings. 

2.  Click on the serach button at top right for "reset"

3.  You will have 2 choices.  One of them is Network Settings reset.

Re: unable to connect to wifi hotspot on lg g5 - bluetooth tethering works

I have tried every possible apn setting provided here and still cannot get wifi tehering to work.

Blue tooth is ok, it looks like the only disadvantage is that it is restricted to one device at a time?

Re: unable to connect to wifi hotspot on lg g5 - bluetooth tethering works

@mynewhomeYes BT only allows one device connection at a time. I think you should explore your TCPIP settings instead of APN. BT also relies on the APN settings, so if your BT connection is working, that means your hotspot problem is NOT due to APN.

@mynewhome Did you try resetting your phone?
