    I had the same issue..

    This fixed it.

    Connection your phone to the computer (may need to enable developer settings)

    adb shell settings get global tether_dun_required

    If the result is "null" or "1"

    adb shell settings put global tether_dun_required 0
    Reboot phone

    This is what worked for me:
    Settings > Search "Developer" > Developer Options

    **Turn on Developer Options**

    **Turn on Tethering hardware acceleration**

    Restart phone

    I'm not sure what part of these steps fixed it (maybe none or maybe all), but my hotspot works now.

    Switching to 2.4 (I pretty much always use it as a 5GHz hotspot), got it working, at which point I was able to switch back, to 5GHz.
    I've had to do this a couple of times though now, I might try the "hardware acceleration" tweak, next time.

    I'm wary of the DUN tweak (i.e. make all tethered traffic part of that class, to avoid the limits on tethering, per your carrier), I'm sure this isn't entirely legal, at least on some locales, but to-each-their-own, I suppose...

    I turned off the hardware tether acceleration in developer settings and it suddenly worked again. It was originally turned on. After confirming it's working, I turned it on again and now it stays working.

    I guess there was a one-time internal parameter setting problem while transitioning to 9.0 OS.

    Galaxy S9+ updated on 1/30/19. Haven't been able to use hotspot since. Tried developer options and resetting hotspot.
    I'm not confident enough in my computer skills to try connecting to my PC to fix. Any other suggestions?

    It connects to PC and if reconnect it again only few sites work, other show error "Err_connection_closed" or "Err_timed_out".
    Hotspot again start working fine once you restart your phone, but once you disconnect it and then reconnect it after a while, same issue persists.
    I don't know why it's happening and why there had been no update for this after many users have reported it in the past.

    I have 3t and facing exactly the same, it shows laptop wifi connected to hotspot. Some sites works and some don't and sometimes all work fine. And if you use vpn, it also works fine. There was no net connection issues, internet always works fine in mobile, everything is smooth, so for almost a month i thought problem was with laptop. i scanned for virus, uninstall and reinstalled programs just to be sure, checked browser settings, I updated window, updated drivers, tried dns caches clean up and nothing worked so i finally changed the window. And still problem with internet connection was same, sometimes it worked fine and other times just few site . i was so pissed when i finally realised it was all caused by some hotspot issue. I remember 3t initially had hotspot issue but then after update they fixed it, but after pie update, hotspot problem got so much weirder. They should fix this as soon as possible. I have never been more annoyed .
