Mint 20 hotspot problem

Post by philmch »

Newbie here - first post.

Changed over to Mint 20 this morning. Generally working well but I cannot set up a wifi hotspot when wired into my hub. It worked ok in Mint 19.

Under Network Settings, the Use As Hotspot button is greyed out. Wired is on, Wireless is off. Same with both on / both off / Wired off & Wireless on.

I'd be grateful for any help or suggestions. Thanks.

Just found out I have the same problem. If I hover over it says 'system policies prohibit use as a hotspot'
