    I have a Huawei P9 Plus running Android 7.0. My provider is Vodafone UK and I have a monthly contract. When I use the WiFi hotspot on the phone devices can connect to it but have no Internet access. I tried connecting a Windows tablet to it and by using ipconfig and nslookup discovered that DNS requests to the DNS server seem to be rejected. The question of course is what could cause that?

    Here's the output from nslookup when querying www.microsoft.com:
    ------------
    Got answer:
    HEADER:
    opcode = QUERY, id = 1, rcode = REFUSED
    header flags: response, want recursion, recursion avail.
    questions = 1, answers = 0, authority records = 0, additional = 0
    QUESTIONS:
    1.43.168.192.in-addr.arpa, type = PTR, class = IN
    ------------
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 192.168.43.1

    Got answer:
    HEADER:
    opcode = QUERY, id = 2, rcode = REFUSED
    header flags: response, want recursion, recursion avail.
    questions = 1, answers = 0, authority records = 0, additional = 0
    QUESTIONS:

    And ipconfig:
