One of these features is the possibility that Windows 11 can be used as a hotspot, in order to provide access to a WiFi network. This functionality is now having problems, simply because a recent update was installed and it has a bug.




The hotspot functionality is something that users have gotten used to using constantly. Brings a WiFi network anywhere, without the need for any additional equipment, giving Internet access to all devices.

This very interesting capability is now having problems in Windows 11, as a result of a simple update that Microsoft recently released. It simply works after the first device is turned on, but it loses access to the Internet, which is essential for this function.

After installing KB5014697, Windows devices may not be able to use the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. When trying to use the hotspot feature, the Hosting Device may lose its Internet connection after connecting a Client Device.
