    When I go to "Settings - About Device - Device Name" the Device Name is "Jack T"

    However when I check wireless networks with my laptop "Jack T" does not show up.

    When I go to "Settings - Connections - Tethering and Mobile hotspot" there I can not configure Device Name and Password for Mobile Hotspot because there is no such a thing to do that.

    So how to do that?

    Device : Samsung Galaxy Note 4
    Android Version : Android 6.0.1 Marshmellow

    In those settings, tap 'Mobile Hotspot' (not the toggle, just the text) and you should be taken to a page with the network name, password, and WiFi sharing (if supported) toggle. If you want to further customize your hotspot, you can tap the menu button there.

    Can you post a screenshot of what you're seeing? I unfortunately don't have a Note 4 handy to test in, so I can only go by what I see on mine, which shouldn't be that different.

    Ok, now I could do it.

    The settings is not at; Settings - Connections - Tethering and Mobile hotspot - Menu

    Rather than it is at; Settings - Connections - Tethering and Mobile hotspot - Mobile Hotspot - Menu

    Thank you very much SpookDroid.

    Hey zansnin777,
    I see you want to use your hotspot so here I follow these point and you will configure your hotspot
    1. Go to settings
    2. Find connections and then tethering and Mobile Hotspot
    3. Then you find first network ssid where you put your name just as you suggest "Jack T"
    Then 2nd option in security you find none or WPA2 PSK
    4. choose WPA2PSK then you find a password tab put your password there.
    5. Now turn on the hotspot and cannet with your pc
    Hope this helps you.
