I'm not sharing this to make money or anything, I'm just curious if anyone knows if this is legit? They have a website and a facebook page. Here's the ad I saw:
"Earn passive income renting (a tiny fraction of) your internet
Power the future of smart technology. Install a tiny, secure smart IoT device hotspot. Earn $100 per year.
The CoastFi Hotspot is a tiny device that connects to your WiFi network to create a secure, and encrypted access point to the internet for smart device technology, like bike & scooter shares, package deliveries, and sensors. No costs or impact on your internet speed."
From my tests, no. Performance is atrocious.
So I've been testing a couple of the new Intel AX200 160 MHz PCIe cards (sold for about 30$ on Amazon) and unfortunately, when you create a hotspot in Windows, it only connects with a channel width of 20MHz on Quest and Quest 2. That means the link speed (as displayed at the top of the computers tab) will be 287 Mbps instead of the 1200 Mbps that a normal AX connection provides. This makes the whole experience quite poor. Not sure if it's a driver bug on Intel's side or a hotspot limitation in Windows but I cannot recommend this setup today.
So what is the best setup for wireless PC streaming?
Using a dedicated router working in AX only mode with your computer wired to it with Gigabit Ethernet is probably the best setup you can get. Something like the TP-Link AX1500 for example which is 79.99 USD. Alternatively, you can use a tri-band router with one band reserved for your Quest running in AX only mode. Those are quite pricey however.
Second best option (and the recommended one for most users on a budget) is to use an AC or AX router with your computer wired to it with Gigabit Ethernet. It's best to separate the 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands into different SSIDs so that the Quest doesn't switch between them when the signal strength changes.
Hope those suggestions help, cheers!
OK so currently, my 2017 Audi A4 is using a T-mobile SIM which works OK for the most part, but the radio in my car is built for an AT&T eSIM. I live in a developing area so T-mobile reception here is "fair" most of the time so I'm looking for a cheap AT&T MVNO that provides hotspot data. Speaking of data, it doesn't have to be unlimited, and I think 2gb is probably enough, but I think 5gb will be better. Anyways looking for suggestions, thanks!

I have the SE model, just the GPS without cellular.
At home, it's connected to my phone no problem. But the moment I leave the house, the red "no phone connection" icon pops up even though I have the iPhone in my pocket.
I have to go to my iphone's bluetooth settings and manually tap my watch there for it to connect. And when I did, it asked if I want to use my iphone's "Personal Hotspot".
Does that mean the Apple Watch needs a constant wi-fi in order to be connected to my iphone? I thought it only needs bluetooth like airpods.
I keep tapping the icon and the Wi-Fi turns on for a few seconds then turns off due to "network error." I paid the surcharge for this service. Also tried to use the Bluetooth tether option.
Hey guys. As I said in title; I want to share my Wi-Fi connection via hotspot. My purpose is extending the range and establishing internet connection to my computer which has no wifi feature. How can I do that? I have an iPhone 5.
I'm thinking of using my phone as a wi-fi hotspot to play Arena on a laptop. Does anyone know how much data this will use up on my phone? I don't have unlimited and I'm thinking it may end up being too much.
I wanna ask if there's a way to get list of individual connected clients to a hotspot I host on my phone and potentially blacklist them.
All I see on LOS17.1 is number of devices connected.
So I regularly use my Quest 1 with VD with my gaming laptop (Alienware i7-9750 2.6GHZ with a GeForce GTX 1660ti) and it actually works REALLY well. Played through all of Half Life Alyx and Lone Echo with it, with very low latency and few issues. I was using the Link cable for a while when starting Half Life and just kept on running into problems.
My current set up has my laptop plugged directly into my network and i'm using the quest in the same room as my router (an older Apple airport with a 802.11ac) connected to a 5ghz network. I have tried connecting directly to my laptop using a mobile hotspot before (with the laptop in the same room as the quest), and that also worked equally well.
I just saw a post that the Quest 2 will support Wi-fi 6 802.11ax. I was thinking about upgrading my router to support this so I can get even better VD performance. But then I realized that my laptop actually has a WiFi 6 802.11ax card (Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650x 160MHz Wireless network Adapter)! Does anyone know if I can just use the mobile hotspot on my onboard Wi-Fi card if that would actually take advantage of the WiFi 6 receiver on the Quest 2?
