    I am unable to connect to laptop using secured mobile hotspot (wifi). My laptop requests network key to access internet. The password that I entered for WPA2 PSK does not work on the laptop. There is no problem connecting when mobile hotspot settings are unsecure or “open”.

    Thanks for any assistance,

  2. it will work with WPA2 PSK, you need to enter at least 8 characters long password on your Android Phone wi-fi hotspot setting. If it is still not working shorten the network SSID and check again. It will surely work with WPA2 PSK password. Still your wi-fi not working please tell me your Android Phone Model and Software Version.
