If you consult the specifications of your mobile, you will surely find the WiFi Hotspot function or WiFi zone. It is a characteristic that integrates the vast majority of smartphones, including the terminals with the most basic features, since the only requirement for it to work is that we can connect to mobile networks , whether they are 3G or 4G. But what is that of the WiFi zone? As we said, our smartphones have the ability to connect to mobile networks, which means that they can connect to the Internet from anywhere, making them an autonomous access point in itself. Imagine that you have your smartphone with you but your tablet can only connect via WiFi and you need to send a document by mail, what you can do is create a WiFi zone from the mobile connection of your smartphone, you connect the tablet and you already have a connection in the two teams. By creating a WiFi zone we turn our smartphone into a kind of portable router . We are talking about tablets, but we could connect any device with or without a WiFi connection, and this method also works through Bluetooth or USB . We tell you how you can create a WiFi zone with your Android smartphone in a few easy steps.
1) The first thing to do is enter the Settings menu , which you can access from the applications menu or from the notifications drop-down. Then click on More , just in the Wireless and networks section . Once inside this menu we go to Anchor network and WiFi zone.
2) The next thing we have to do is click on the Portable WiFi Zone box and after a few moments it will be activated, now we can configure the connection. All you have to do is choose a name , the type of security (better to leave it in WPA2) and a password . We click Save and that's it.
3) We have already created our WiFi zone and this will be indicated by the icon that appears in the status bar, right at the top of the screen. What we have to do now is take the equipment we want to connect, in our case we have done it with an iPad, and scan for wireless networks. We select the one we have just created and enter the password.
As we said at the beginning, we can also share the mobile connection of our smartphone through Bluetooth or USB. These methods are intended to use computers that do not have WiFi , but the result is exactly the same. To do it via USB you have to choose the USB tether option , but it will only be highlighted when the cable is connected. In the case of Bluetooth, the two devices must be paired . The creation of a WiFi zone or network anchoring is very practical, but we must bear in mind that our telephone provider offers us a limited amount of data, so do not get excited and start downloading very large files or you risk ending your monthly fee quickly.
