Hello and thank you.

I am trying to connect my laptop to my my phone. I tether my phone to the mobile hotspot no problem. I find it in my list of wi-fi options on my laptop. But when I click on the option for my phone, I get the annoying Microsoft redirect, which defaults me to an inactive page even when my wifi says I'm connected. turn off metrobyt-mobile.com/mobile-hotspot-notification.html at DuckDuckGo.

How do I work around this glitch, this redirect? Thank you.

Log onto your Cell Phone carriers web site and check your plan or give them a call. The Cell Provider has to Enable Tethering in your plan, if it is not already. Many require an extra charge to Enable it.

I did just that a little bit ago. And apparently my plan refreshes at midnight on the 4th automatically. I paid my plan 2 days ago but it didn't refresh. So I phoned them, and yes, as you say, they refreshed my plan and connection resumed. Sorry for the confusion. And thank you very much for your persistence. Wonderful.
