Default Hot spot problems

Hi all

Sorry if this has already been covered... I searched for quite a bit and couldn't find any solutions to my problems.

Problem #1: When my laptop is connected to my phone hotspot, sometimes it drops the connection and reports as "no internet connection". If I turn the hotspot off and back on again, it reconnects just fine. This happens randomly and started a couple of weeks ago.

Problem #2: Sometimes when I turn my hotspot on, I get the "verifying account" message and the spinning icon, but the hotspot never turns on. I have to reboot the phone to get it to function.

My phone is completely stock, not rooted, and has the stock ROM. These problems both developed recently... I've been using the same setup problem free for 10 months.

Any ideas?

Yeah if you can't fix it with a simple reset, root and run custom rom.
