XS Max hotspot no show

I turn on hotspot on my XS Max and turn on wifi, but leave blue tooth off. My hotspot doesnt show on either my 2018 macbook pro or my older one. It just cant be seen.

It has shown on occasion, but is mostly never seen. e.g. Ive been trying for the last 30 minutes to see it and even connecting manually but its not there.

Re: XS Max hotspot no show

Hi @ches, you're saying that the Mobile Hotspot network name doesn't appear in the list of available WiFi Networks? 


Does it work over USB or Bluetooth? 


There's some handy advice up on Toms guide that you might find useful.
