    Welcome to Android Central!

    No, your phone is correct. When your PC is connected to mobile hotspot, it's doing other things - perhaps downloading updates to Windows, or fetching calendar/contact/email from a cloud service - in the background. In other words, you may only be using a web browser, but the computer is doing more than that behind the scenes.
