How To Hotspot Windows 11

In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of setting up a mobile hotspot on your Windows 11 computer. A mobile hotspot allows other devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to connect to your computer’s internet connection. This can be extremely useful when you are in a location with limited internet access or want to share your connection with friends and family.

Setting Up a Mobile Hotspot on Windows 11

  1. Firstly, ensure your computer is connected to the internet through Ethernet or Wi-Fi. If it isn’t already connected, go to the Network & Internet settings and connect to a network.
  2. Open the Settings app by pressing Win + I on your keyboard or by clicking on the Start button and selecting Settings.
  3. In the Settings app, go to Network & Internet.
  4. On the left-hand side, click on Mobile hotspot. If you don’t see this option, your computer may not support mobile hotspots.
  5. In the Mobile hotspot settings, turn on the toggle under Mobile hotspot.
  6. Under Share my Internet connection from, choose the internet connection you want to share. If you’re connected to both Ethernet and Wi-Fi, you can choose either one.
  7. Now, under Share my Internet connection over, choose whether you want to share your connection via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Wi-Fi is recommended as it usually has a better range and faster connections.
  8. Next, click Edit to configure the hotspot settings. You can change the network name, password, and the type of security for the connection. It is recommended to use WPA2-Personal security for better protection. Click Save once you are done.
  9. Your mobile hotspot should now be active. To connect your devices, go to the Wi-Fi settings on your device and connect to the network you just created, using the password you set.


Setting up a mobile hotspot on Windows 11 is a straightforward process that can provide internet access to your devices when you’re on the go or in areas with limited connectivity. Remember to always secure your hotspot with a strong password and be mindful of data usage, especially if you’re on a limited data plan.
