Update: it got worse later, at a point where it would disconnect for about three minutes at a time and then reconnect for about 30 seconds, unbearable.
That makes a hotspot more or less good for nothing. Hmm. We need to determine if it's hardware or network.
Have you tried the hotspot in multiple areas? If so, is the problem the same no matter the location?
Just wanted to check in with you to see if you were still having troubles with your hotspot. Let us know
