Since upgrading to 5.0.1 All the computers\phones I try to connect to the S4 Hotspot are connecting with wifi or USB.
However, I get no internet connection. On windows I get information that there is something wrong with the DNS server (when trying to solve the problem with windows).

Did anyone else encounter it? (I didn't find anything on Google or this forum about this).
I only found something about AT&T blocking issues requiring rooting, however I don't have AT&T device.

Hope for your help,

I just upgraded my 9505 to version 5.0.1 on Sunday, and tried setting this phone as a hotspot as I normally do. My android tablet and windows 10 PC that normally connect to this phone come up with "No Gateway". Brilliant..... Luckily i have a spare Nokia Lumina to get me out, hoping they fix this soon.

  1. Check system date and time on your device.
  2. Delete your Portable Hotspot and set up a new one.
  3. Does internet connection work on device? If you can't open any internet page on it - check internet Access Point settings.
