Re: Turn Desktop into Hotspot from Tethered Phone Connection

US version Currently unavailable

I tried an Asus router and it would not connect via hotspot or when tethered. If I can turn the desktop into a router I might find a work around on the one device restriction my carrier has on the phone.

Re: "Use as Hotspot" no longer working

I'm running 19.2 mate and EasyTether Pro with success. I want to hotspot my computer to share this connection. I looked in network connections and don't see a hotspot option.

My plan gives me true unlimited data on the phone with no throttling. My Hotspot is throttled to 5mbps plus I can only connect one device to it at a time. I tried tethering to an Asus AC68U and the SIM card would not allow the internet to work. It stumped ASUS tech support. The reason I was requesti...

I am aware of the USB tethering to a router. I tried an Asus router and my carrier is blocking tethering to a router, but not blocking tethering to a computer. They also are blocking me from Hot Spotting to more than one device at a time. This is why I am seeking help to tether in the method I have ...

Re: Can't Get USB Wi-Fi Adaptor to work

Not quite sure what to do with all the info on that page. I can understand sleeper12's instructions (even though they were for wrong kernel). Unless I'm wrong again, I'd assume you do this: cd rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.3.1_27678.20180430_COEX20180427-5959 VER=$(sed -n 's/\PACKAGE_VERSION="\(.*\)"/\1/...

Re: Can't Get USB Wi-Fi Adaptor to work

I found this on a Ubuntu forum if you want to try it. You really ought to check things before you post them. Those instructions are for an older version that doesn't support the current kernels. The OP should use: https://github.com/cilynx/rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v5.3.1_27678.20180430_COEX20180427-595...

[SOLVED] Can't Get USB Wi-Fi Adaptor to work

I can't figure out how to get the Linux drivers to install (CD) so that I can get my USB Wi-Fi adaptor working on my 19.2 64-bit Xfce laptop. I was hoping the new 19.2 would have the drivers. It is a Techkey AC-1200 Wi-Fi adaptor. I have tried plugging the adaptor in different USB ports.
