    Wi-Fi Hotspot

    You have the possibility of turning your Motorola Droid Razr HD or Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD into a Wireless Mobile Hotspot. Thus, you can provide internet to other Wi-Fi enabled devices, such as tablets or laptops.

    1. Tap Apps.
    2. Tap Settings.
    3. Select Tethering & Mobile Hotspot.
    4. Check Mobile Hotspot.

    It is highly recommended to set Hotspot Security and Password to protect your smartphone from unauthorized access. To set up security:

    1. Tap Mobile Hotspot Settings.
    2. Configure Mobile Hotspot.
    3. In the SSID field enter a name for your hotspot.
    4. You now need to set up the type of Security that you want to have, either Open or WPA2. It is recommended that you choose WPA2 – this will require you to set up a unique password that others will need in order to access your Wi-Fi hotspot. Thus, it will prevent any unauthorized access.
    5. You can switch to different Channels if you notice interference after the hotspot has been active for a while.
    6. When finished with the settings, tap Save.
    7. Now, when your Hotspot is active, other devices can connect to it if they enter the SSID that you set up, select a Security type and enter the correct Wireless password.

    Note: The Wi-Fi power will be turned OFF and your smartphone will start using the mobile network for internet access whenever you turn the Wi-Fi hotspot ON, so pay attention to your monthly data allowance.
