Wifi Hotspot Nexus 4 15.04 stable
So, I just got my Nexus 4 up and running, but there seems to be no option for a wireless tether.
I have a good data connection with my network. Any help is much appreciated.
Hi @xanthipus. I haven't used it for a while on my N5, but I used to find that sometimes I needed to "refresh" it by flicking flight mode on and off. Also sometimes, I had to go into "settings" rather than just drop down from the notifications menu.
thanks for getting back to me, it appears to be all good now.
The hotspot toggle switch appeared approximately 3 hours after network activation.
I did run the first two commands from
They seemed to fail, but perhaps a delayed effect?
Pleased to hear you've got connected, @xanthipus
The hotspot does work now, however, it does not start up consistently. IE seems to need a few toggle cycles to get it to start up. Just wondering, is this a Ubuntu Touch thing or a 5 year old Nexus 4 thing?
Also, is there a way to add a password to the hotspot?
That was my experience too, @xanthipus. I don't know whether it's a phone or an OS issue though.

How often did you toggle the flight mode? I can't get it working on the nexus 4... But it works almost perfect on the pro 5 (using it frequently). I would assume its an 'os issue' but not appearing on all phones... On the pro 5, theres dialogue for setting a password in system settings -> network -> hotspot.
Yeah, sometimes it was quite a fiddle, @hummlbach. I think I did the old turn the phone off and on again when it was particularly stubborn!
It seems that I have to toggle the flight mode most every time I want to use it. Will update if I find a way to password protect it.

Did anybody manage to make any progress on this issue? I also have no hotspot option in system settings on my Nexus 4, now running 16.04 OTA-5. No amount of toggling the flight mode switch makes any difference.
