Activating portable wifi hotspot will turn off your wifi..........Have you tried with a sim in as the hotspot utilizes your data conection as a wifi hotspot. So I am pretty sure you need the sim inserted??

Oh I thought WiFi tethering uses your WiFi not data connection I have a 2 gig data connection and I don't want to waste it. I an going to try with sim card.

Edit: sim card inside but turns off WiFi and turns on 4G LTE
