- Once you are in the Tethering menu, select the check box beside the option ‘Portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
- As soon as you select the check-box, you get a prompt which clearly states that the amount of power consumption will be high.
- Once the check-box has been selected, you can either check the settings for more information, or connect your laptop to the new wi-fi router that will be shown in the list.

If you are around with friends or colleagues you can easily connect it in a group, but the only limitation is that this option supports only 8 connections at a time.
