    My Asus K013 won't connect to my Samsung S3 Mini's wifi hotspot, it will let disconnectedt and connect entering the password etc but it carries on searching for other wifis. So when I reentered the password it would come up with the wifi logo that it was connected but it wouldn't the top of the screen. I'm desperate for a resolution!

    Welcome to Android Central! Do other devices connect successfully to the hotspot? Are you certain that your mobile plan comes with hotspot usage? Not all of them do--or they require a fee to activate it.

    My hotspot has worked for months prior to this, with other phones or tablets. My tablet has connected perfectly ever since I bought it in January although my top up was due it shouldn't have mattered because I get unlimited tethering it was just the tablet's connection to the hotspot that was the issue. Internet tether via bluetooth works perfect but the hotspot still will not work.

    Can you try clearing out the hotspot, then setting it back up again? Or try setting it up without the wi-fi security (which is usually WPA2). Do that temporarily only, as a troubleshooting step--you don't want your hotspot to be open permanently when you're in public.

    A hot spot is for accessing an internet connection, not file sharing unless you are trying to email them

    Had the same problem for a long time, you might accidentally have enabled so that only approved devices can connect to your phone.

    I put my tablet in the list of approved devices to connect to my phone-hotspot and the problem was resolved for me at least.
