Question [Q] Any way to force the mobile data network?

I have a need to connect to a WiFi device (Camera) not connected to the internet and be able to get internet data via 4G at the same time. Is it possible to force connection to the mobile network for data with the WiFi on? Rooted on KK.

TIA

All I can think of would be to tether your data, portable hotshot to the camera.

No you can't. I would say tether like the previous post said.

Thanks for the replies.

Any suggestions where I can learn about portable hotspots? Is this a device requiring a separate data plan and acts like a mobile wifi access point? The camera I'm attempting to use wants to be on it's own network.

I've tethered before to a PC thru both USB or Bluetooth, but not familiar with hotspot.

I've tried Wifi tethering, but the camera wants to act like a router/master and can not be changed. The SSID and passwords are the only settable things.

Ad Hoc is not an option. It does the address assignment and security password management. Maybe I need a different software on the phone? Or maybe a configuration I'm not doing??
