Internet Sharing not working

I am having Nokia Lumia 710 with Vodafone(India) 2G activated.

 

I have updated my phone to latest firmware and OS and got hte Internet sharing option in my settings tab, But even then I am unable to share internet.

 

Others are able to connect to my network if I share but when they try to browse internet,none of the internet pages are opening. Then I have tried to share my internet to my laptop(Windows 7 OS). I was able to connect but I was unable to surf anything.  

 

Can anyone help me finding the issue?

Re: Internet Sharing not working

You need a 3G/H connection. Sharing a 2G connection would be extremely slow..

Hi,

If you go into your settings > mobile network make sure the highest connection speed is set to highest or 3G.

Hi Sithick

Are you sure your network provider allows tethering?

Re: Internet Sharing not working

As Raoul_Duke mentions: Check that your carrier does not block this.

Also try restarting your phone.

Hi,

 

I have downloaded the latest Network Set-up app from nokia. With the option to edit APN and updating to correct one(manually) wifi-sharing is now working on my phone.

 

You can search the web for APN setting for your carriers below is example of site:
