    I have 2 phones, one with enabled wifi hotspot (unlimited company data) and second Huawei P9 with Android 7 (personal with limited data usage). When i want to connect to the wifi hotspot it is marked as mobile hotspot. In past i was able to change these setting under setting / data usage / mobile hotspots to threat the wifi as normal access point and now i can't.

    Any idea where i can change it now to threat the wifi mobile hotspot as normal wifi? Or any application which will allow me to change these settings?

    In which phone? It should look like normal wifi to the P9 - just "forget" the connection, then connect to it again.

    If it's not acting like normal wifi in the one running the hotspot, speak to IT - they must have changed something. A hotspot is just a normal router and wireless access point running in a phone. It has no control over the signal it's connected to, though, just as your home router can't control your provider's signal.
