It's telling: we can't set up mobile hotspot


Under these settings, you can select 2.4GHz or 5GHz. How about 6GHz for those of us that have WiFi 6E enabled cards? Is there an advanced configuration tab that can use those channels to maximize the link? 1500mbps for my Killer AX1675x. Use case - Airlink over Quest 2 via mobile hotspot. Thanks.

@ammarjaved i do not get the edit function under the properties area.


After I enable mobile hotspot on my computer I can not browse the internet on my computer while hotspot is enable. only on my tablet I have to disable the hotspot in order to browse the internet on my PC
