Enable Hotspot: different methods produce different issues
If you enable hotspot with top menu (drag top menu, and then select connection and then enable hotspot), it does not work. But if you enable it with systems options (left menu), it works (Antenna icon appears).
So I thing it is a bug, or at least a bad behaviour.
Yes, it is buggy (https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/1056)
This happens on the Nexus 5 with the dropdown menu:
- Enable hotspot (doesn't work)
- Disable hotspot
- Enable hotspot (works after a while)
- Wi-fi connections no longer work
- Reboot to resolve
