I have an issue with Redmi Note 5 Global Oreo where hotspot is not turning on or not receiving any data.
Found a fix, no root needed. Credits MIUI VN. You can try this also if you can't send files via Shareit, etc.

Requirements:
Minimal ADB Fastboot Tool

Instructions:
1. Download and install Minimal Adb Fastboot Tool on pc.

2. Go to Settings > About Phone > Tap MIUI Version several times to enable Developer Options.

3. Go Back and browse to Additional Settings > Developer Options and Enable USB Debugging, Install via USB, USB Debugging (Security settings), Enable view attribute inspection.

4. Connect Phone to PC and phone will ask for a connection permission, tap Allow.

5. Now open command prompt. Type the following codes:
Code:
adb devices
Code:
adb shell
Code:
settings put global tether_dun_required 0
Code:
reboot

@Addymore, exactly. The best answer they could tell you is to do a factory reset or to wait for updates. Lol.

I tried everything with their stock rom.... Even edl with clean all... Lol....! Hotspot not connecting to pc in any case.... Lol...! On miui forum pple were saying it is the the hardware issue....! But the RR rom gave me hope....! It was just working....

Then saw the simple adb lines.... Haaaaa!

Hi there,

I am on miui global 9.5 / Stable 9.5.19.0 (oEIMIFA) stock MIUI. I had previously been on 9.5.6.0 but updated the MIUI version. Since updating to 9.5.19.0, I have found that when I set a hotspot from my Redmi Note 5, the connected device is able to connect to the internet, however, my Redmi can no longer connect!! This seems backwards but is very frustrating as I was hoping to be able to use both devices at the same time! On my other devices I can share a hotspot while still using mobile data!

Is there a fix for this? I applied the adb fix mentioned above but it did not change the problem.

THanks in advance!!

If it was working earlier, go to settings and reset bluetooth, wifi and network settings and restart your phone.

Dear people for whom it has worked, could you please tell me where you found drivers for the Redmi Note 5?

I'm asking that because once adb+fastboot is installed, the command adb devices lists no devices at all. I am guessing that's because I have not installed drivers, but there aren't any to be downloaded from mi.com (or I haven't found the appropriate section).

I am running MIUI 10.0.6.0, updated a few days ago from 9.6.x, and I've bought the phone three weeks ago and hotspot never worked. I confess I have been desperately trying to make it work.

My OS is Windows 8.1, up-to-date.

Thank you.

PS: I read the OP again and it says "Connect Phone to PC and phone will ask for a connection permission, tap Allow." but my phone never asks me for a permission; I just hear sound notifications, but no dialog or prompt appears on-screen. The only moment when I see a dialog with an OK button to press is when I enable USB debugging.
