Setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot on your device allows you to access your iPad’s cellular connection from other Wi-Fi enabled devices like laptops, smartphones and other tablets. You can set up your iPad to function as a personal Wi-Fi hotspot provided its running iOS 4.3 or later.
Follow these five steps and you will have your own Wi-Fi hotspot.
Tap the “settings” icon on your iPad
Tap “network”and choose “general”to access the network settings.
Tap the “personal hotspot” option located halfway down the list.
Tap the small button labeled “off” at the top of the Personal Hotspot menu. The button should slide left, turn blue and switch to “on.” If this option is not available, you don’t currently have Wi-Fi hotspot capability on your iPad. Contact your wireless service provider to add this feature.
Enter a Wi-Fi hotspot password. You will only have to complete this step if you have Wi-Fi hotspot capability.
If you do have a tablet or device that you want to use as a hotspot, don’t hesitate to give us a call if you need help.
