Mobile Hotspot Mint 19

Post by MalabarFlash » Fri Oct 26, 2018 11:51 am

I was able to use my existing computer/hardware to create a mobile hotspot in Windows about a year ago. Windows update made that impossible. I found some links for Ubuntu 18.04 and earlier versions of Mint. The menus shown are different from mine. I need help creating a hotspot. I am hard wired to the ethernet and do not own a router.

Are you trying to use a cell phone to create a mobile hotspot? If so what cell phone are you using?.

No, I get the Internet through an ethernet cable connected directly to my desktop computer.
