    OnePlus 9 Pro 12/256 here, on latest

    Wi-Fi hotspot seems not working for most of my devices... my car doesn't detect the OnePlus network at all even after several refreshes, my Android TV detects it but cannot connect.
    My most recent laptop (Lenovo YogaSlim7) is the only one that can detect and connect, while my Surface 3 cannot detect it too.

    Already tried to change SSID, security options, password, and Wi-Fi band, but nothing changes.

    I think there's something related to Wi-Fi 6 options that acts weird, because the Lenovo is the only one between my devices that support Wi-Fi 6, even if the related option in OnePlus 9 hotspot settings is disabled.
    Anyone else with same problem?

    Oh sorry. I've overlooked that you already posted that.
    Did it work before? Because if that is the case I'd report a bug.

    I have the phone for 4 days, and it updated to as soon as I got it out of the box, so I didn't try with previous releases.

    OnePlus 9 Pro 8/128 - Same problem. I can't share connection neither WiFi nor USB.

    UPDATE (2021-05-05): After some investigations, I got the problem solved. It was a problem with my carrier (I could share the internet connection if I was connected to a WiFi network). I contacted with them and they fixed my problem (it was a problem with the configuration of the APN).

    My laptop connects fine. But I get intermitant connection drops and reconnects notifications on the phone. Not enough to interrupt the internet usage. That's even with the latest FW.
    When I connectd another phone to the hotstop. There was a warning from the other phone the connection was not stable.

    I'm having the same issue and my current software version is

    The WiFi tethering works on 2.4GHz. But on 5GHz mode it doesn't work. My laptop has an ax200 chip and it can connect to 6GHz and other bands. But with oneplus it's unable to connect. Except in 2.4GHz mode.
    I have not able to find any solution as of now.

    I have the exact same problem with my Oneplus 9. I cannot connect any device onto hotspot. I need this fixed urgently. Please advise.

    Sounds daft but have you guys tried changing the protocol for the hotspot to WPA2 instead of 3? I had an issue with my Chromebook not liking it, changed that and it worked fine afterwards.

    I still get some stability issues. When in online Teams meeting with the laptop and when I use phone at the same time laptop drops from the oneplus hotspot. So for example opening phone will drop the connection. Of course it resumes right after, but it's enought to drop me from the teams meeting.

    Happened to me multiple times, so it's easily reproduced. Settings were normal: 2G Band, WPA2, no wifi-6 standard hotspot.
