    I tried to mirror my tablet on the fire tv stick via the hotspot activated on my mobile phone linked to the mobile net. That doesn’t work. Is this normal / is there a solution?

    Many thanks and best regards,

    If that’s the case then why do apps (HP printer app) not recognize my Hotspot as WiFi when bluetooth can see the devices? I suggest that your article doesn’t go far enough. In this instance, the difference is so huge that I cannot agree with your assessment of these two terms being synonymous with each other. One starts out as an airwave frequency (2.5 GHz) and is transmitted to ISP, typically a cable company, along a physical cable (“analog”), while the other signal hits a celltower and gets converted at the telephony ISP (telco) digitally. So when I try to connect my printer to my phone, its looking for an IP address and not an RF. I guess, I’m not even sure. Maybe the app developers need to fix the app. I don’t know. Can you help me understand?

    If a internet plan says that its hotspot is limited to 3gb, does it means the same amount of data (3gb) also applies to wifi modem ?
