I tried tethering my Galaxy Tab A 2016 Model SM-T580 to my Moto G phone without success. The phone is all set up with Bluetooth tethering switched on in Hotspot & Tethering. I have switched on Nearby Device Scanning in More Connection Settings as I can't see any other option that I think is relevant.
QUESTION to any Tab A users:
Is tethering possible with the Tab A.
If so. how do I set it up.
Hi, thanks for replying.
I have set up WI-FI Hotspot name and password on my Moto G phone. My ID Network allows tethering. I'm not sure where and how I set up tethering on my Galaxy Tab A. Except for my WI-FI the only other connection I can use is Bluetooth. I use it successfully to transfer files between the two devices.
I have Nearby Device Scanning turned ON on More Connection Settings but a connection is not happening.
Can my Tablet be used for tethering to the phone. I'm starting to think it's not possible.
I'm trying to set up a mobile hotspot on my phone so I can tether my Tab A to use the internet. I only used the example of transferring files by bluetooth to explain that scanning works for that.
I have easily set up my Moto G phone as a mobile hotspot. I have given it a name and set a password. It is turned ON.
I think it's just waiting for someone to find it but what do I know I have never tried doing this before.
My Galaxy Tab A 2016 Model SM-T580 is a different matter. That is why I'm posting here.
I can't find any menu item or link for tethering or hotspots. That is why I asked "Is tethering possible with the Tab A". I thought other users of Galaxy Tab A 2016 Model SM-T580 would be able to tell me.
This is what I have done on the Tab A but it hasn't worked.
Under Connections, I selected More Connection Settings. Then I selected Nearby Device Scanning which is switched to ON. There is a little grey screen 'searching' or its flickering.
I think this hasn't worked because my Tab A can not tether.
