How to Use Elixir 2 for WiFi Hotspot

If you have an older Android phone, you may have encountered the issue of not being able to create a hotspot while connected to a Wi-Fi network. This means that you are unable to use both Wi-Fi and hotspot at the same time. In this blog post, we will discuss two methods on how to use Wi-Fi and hotspot on an Android phone simultaneously.

Method 1: Using Wi-Fi Sharing Feature on Android

To use both Wi-Fi and hotspot, you need to enable the Wi-Fi sharing feature in your phone settings. Open the settings app on your Android phone and go to Connections > Mobile Hotspot and Tethering > Mobile Hotspot > Configure. In the Advanced section, turn on the Wi-Fi sharing feature. Once enabled, you can turn on the hotspot and share the Wi-Fi internet on other devices. If your phone has a dedicated Wi-Fi tethering option in settings, you can use it to share the Wi-Fi connection only.

Method 2: Using a Third-Party App

If your phone doesn’t have the Wi-Fi sharing or Wi-Fi tethering option, you can use a third-party app called Netshare No Root Tethering. This app doesn’t require root access and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Once installed, check the box next to the Start Wi-Fi Hotspot option. The app will create a Wi-Fi hotspot, and you can see its name and password. Take note of the proxy address and port, as you’ll need it to connect other devices to the Wi-Fi hotspot.

To connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot on a Windows PC, connect to the hotspot and enter the password you see on the Netshare app. You need to set up a proxy to gain access to the internet. Head over to the Windows proxy settings, enable the user proxy server, and enter the proxy IP address and port number from the Netshare app.

If you want to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot using another Android phone or tablet, connect to the hotspot, tap the settings icon beside it, and select Manual under Proxy. Enter the proxy IP address and port number from the Netshare app.

It’s worth noting that if you have any other device like an iPhone, Mac, or Chromebook, you have to perform similar steps to enable the proxy settings to access the internet through the Wi-Fi hotspot. Netshare has a detailed guide for each platform that you can check out.

In conclusion, using Elixir 2 for Wi-Fi hotspot is relatively easy, and you can choose between the Wi-Fi sharing feature on Android or a third-party app like Netshare No Root Tethering. With these methods, you can use both Wi-Fi and hotspot on your Android phone simultaneously.
