    My hotspot and USB tethering are not working properly after updating the OS to android 9.
    Though each mode connection is successful phone is not sharing data to the connected devices and hence the device/laptop shows "no Internet available".

    I too had an issue with hotspot but fixed it by changing the hotspot name to something other than OnePlus 6 and password of my own pick. Maybe give that a try. As for usb tethering, i have no issue with it, works just fine.

    Same issue for me after update to Android 9.0. For me, it works only if I put the tethering in 2.4 ghz, not 5 ghz. Same for you guys?

    I am also having this issue, however I have NEVER been able to get my hotspot to work through wifi, bluetooth or connecting with a USB cable! Have tried all the suggestions through endless blogs and other forums to no avail. Have tested my other devices and even contacted windows support and have narrowed down the issue to the Oneplus 6 handset. Can someone please fix this bug urgently :(

    I've had Android Pie for weeks now and hotspot was working fine. However, it stopped working today as well.

    I can connect my other device to the hotspot but there will be no internet. Any suggestions?

    Nope, because you're on the user side complaining. There's no OP devs on this side.

    Hi guys,
    I've experienced the same behaviour since one week, actually since my last android security update.
    I'm not on a OnePlus anymore (too expensive to change the broken screen, I switched to a xiaomi mi a1, cheaper than changing the screen).

    Anyway, I found a solution on some old OnePlus threads regarding tethering. It worked for me. I'm on vacation but it would have been a problem for me, as I'm working through my 4G connection.

    Change this setting with adb shell : https://forums.oneplus.com/threads/no-internet-access-over-tethering-wifi.530209/#post-16129196
    And don't forget to reboot your phone. I switched from the null value to 0 and it didn't work. I restarted the phone et voilà.

    Tell me if it worked on OP.

    I'm still have issue for me after update to Android 9.0. For me, it works only if I put the tethering in 2.4 ghz, not 5 ghz. Could anyone help please?

    I'm having the same issue with my OnePlus 6T, latest update (Dec 2018). I have to set up my hotspot for 2.4GHz only as the 5GHz will work for 5-10 minutes and then disappear.

    I too have this issue but I fixed USB tethering by doing this

    wifi > hotspot+teht.. > wifi hotspot > toggle turn off hotspot automatically to off
    also try changing you AP band or security if it still not work

    i know this sounds weird but i couldn't connect my PC to wifi via phone usb and spent 20 mins trying to figure out how to fix.
    i somehow randomly tried this and now i have working USB tethering.

    I fixed it by following someone else's thread here - Go to your 4G APN and change it to ,DUN at the end. So I'm in the UK and my APN is three.co.uk - so I changed it to three.co.uk,DUN and saved it - didn't even need to reboot BOOM hotspot on 5Ghz no problem.

    So simple but it works!
