This is a sporadic issue. It has worked a few times.

MLawr7 encountered this issue on my PC and was waiting on me to provide the log, but I was unavailable. It is attached.

Hello BRich22,

 

Thank you for your response, 

 

Could you please let me know if you are trying to use the mobile hotspot on 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz?

2.4GHz works, "any available" works (but only offers 2.4), 5GHz throws the error.

 

Unlike MLawr7 I have never had 5GHz appear when using an iphone 8+, Oculus Quest or Oculus Go (each of which routinely makes use of 5 at other locations)

Thank you. That was frustratingly simple... and frustratingly badly flagged by Windows.
