WiFi Connection Sharing? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I am currently in the process of trying to use my windows 10 laptop as a mobile hot-spot, or use the shared or bridged connections to enable my Playstation 4 to use my laptops internet. My laptop uses WiFi. Every time i go to share the connection it freezes, stops working, then has a com surrogate error. And when I try to use the mobile hot-spot it just freezes and doesn't give me an error description.  Is what I am trying to do possible, and if so what am I doing wrong?
