    Hello guys,

    I'm having this massively frustrating issue.

    I created hotspot on my Samsung J7 mobile and it successfully connects with my hp laptop but it keep showing 'no Internet access'.

    Other laptops and devices cannot to my phone's hotspot but my laptop just wouldn't.

    My laptop can also connect with the hotspot connection of other phones.

    There just seems to be a problem with connection between my phone and laptop.

    When I troubleshooted the response I got was "the dns server may be experiencing problems. Windows help and support can provide more information about dns".

    And when I clicked in next I got this "your dns server might be unavailable."

    Please I need y'all help on this.

    Thanks.

    When you connect to the hotspot, change the DNS to Google OpenDNS. There are several guides on the internet how to do this, and it will differ based on what version of Windows you have.
