Samsung Galaxy fame-setting up a WiFi hotspot

Here's how to set up a WiFi hotspot with your Samsung Galaxy Fame.

  • Tap the Menu key and then tap Settings.
  • Tap More settings.
  • Tap Tethering & portable hotspot.
  • Tap Portable Wifi hotspots to turn on.
  • Tap Ok on the data/battery consumption reminder.
  • Tap Portable Wifi hotspots (to the left of the Off/On switch), then tap Configure.
  • You now have the option to change the Network SSID (this is what you will see when trying to connect from another device), the type of security and the password. The security is preset to WPA2 PSK but you may need to change this if the device you're trying to connect doesn't support this. The password provided is quite long so you may choose to change it to something a little easier to remember.
  • Once you've finished making the changes tap Save.
  • You can now search for this hotspot using another device - just select it from the list of available networks and enter the password you created.
  • Once connected you'll be able to see the connected users within the Portable WiFi hotspots menu.
