    Okay so this program used to run great for me and I don't know
    what happened. Recently, I can't enable wifi encryption or my
    computer won't connect for some reason and the passowrd is
    correct and everything so I have to turn off encryption to
    connect. Now the newest problem is sometimes,
    more often than not, i'll be browsing on the computer and all
    the sudden web pages will stop loading but the computer and my
    phone both still show tethering on and connected.
    What is weird about this is, I can still go to facebook
    on my computer, that is the only website it will load
    when it's acting up like this and I have no idea why. So to get
    it working again, I go into settings on wifi tether and change
    the channel to any other channel than what it's currently on
    and it resets wifi tether and then I reset my wifi on my
    computer and re-connect to the wifi tether connection and
    then all web pages will load again until it acts up again
    which can range anywhere from 10 minutes until it does it
    again till sometimes it will work great for a couple hours
    before it acts up and I have to reset everything to load web
    pages, except like I said, facebook for some reason. So if
    anybody can help me out as to why my computer will no longer
    connect with encryption enabled and why out of the blue, it
    just stops loading web pages unless I reset. Thanks so much
    for any help!

    You can try to uninstall it and reinstall it. Which Hotspot app are you using? System default or another one? I recommend this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.snclab.wifitetherrouter
    Good luck
