Mobile Hotspot Not Working after Windows 10 Fall Creators Update? Try Connectify Hotspot for Free!
Along with Microsoft's mid October 2017 launch of its Fall Creators Update, many users saw their mobile hotspot functionality in Windows 10 stop working correctly. Even our very own Connectify Hotspot was affected by this, as we're using APIs from Microsoft.
Unfortunately by the time this blog post was written, Microsoft did not release any fix for that, so that makes the smart engineers at Connectify the only ones to have come up with a solution. It is included in Connectify Hotspot 2018 and solves the mobile hotspot not working issue in Windows 10.
