I keep seeing this issue but not one seems to follow through on the fix.
I had the same issue and after pulling my hair out with tech support I tried some things of my own that worked.
I decided to see if foxfi would work "free no root version" when reading the material, they alluded that some Samsung devices were quirky.
Per foxfi instructions when you go to download it.... some samsung
phones have issues.. need to turn on wifi but don't allow to
connect to anything..
I then installed foxfi "free without root"... rebooted and was
able to get instant hotspot when activated!...
then I turn off foxfi and turned on the stock hotspot and now it works!
So I"m thinking all is well but will it work without foxfi installed?
I then uninstalled foxfi, rebooted and turned on hotspot "with
wifi off" ,now my stock hotspot works instantly when turned on
with internet access!
This time I turned it the hotspot off again.. turned wifi back on
and logged onto a network in my house "wireless".. once logged on
I tried to activate hotspot again. This turns off my wifi in the
act of activating hotspot, but the hotspot now works!
I rebooted just to confirm one more time and still works!
