How to enable Wi-Fi HOTSPOT feature on the Nokia Asha 311?

Hey guys,

I have been trying to figure out how I can enable Wi-Fi hotspot feature on my Nokia Asha 311. Is it possible? I have an unlimited data plan with my network operator and was wondering if I can share that to my laptop via Wi-Fi.

Anyone who has tried this please share with us. Is there a special Wi-Fi hotspot app for Nokia Asha 311 that may come in handy for this?

Dude, its just a Nokia Asha running on the Nokia S40 OS. Wi-Fi hotspot is for smartphones.

I haven't really tried it out but I think you can! Go to "Settings" "connectivity" "Wifi". In the "wifi" screen you will have the option to "on" or "off" your wifi. PAY ATTENTION to the "OPTION"( 3 horizontal white lines locate below the network signal indicator). Tap on the 3 white lines and a menu will appear. There will be 2 options to choose, 1) Add New Network, & 2)Settings. Select "Add New Networks" and it will ask you to key in a network name, after that you will enter a Wifi broadcast setting page which will ask you to enter "SSID", "Security Type", "Broadcast SSID", "advanced setting". When done setting up, a network icon will be displayed under the option to "on" or "off" your wifi. I'm using the version 5.92 software and did not notice whether there is such an option in previous versions of software. If there is, try it out, but just to remind you that after I updated my software to ver. 5.92, the Wifi has got connection problem and also with other bugs, you might regret if you update to 5.92. Please tell me whether my guide works and if you have any idea on Wifi connection problems in ver.5.92, do advice. Thank you!

Hi! Could you tell me what info should be for "SSID"?

Sorry, I think your method is used for opening or reminding SSID and password of other wifi hotspot.

It's not work on Nokia Asha 311.


Sadly for you, there is no Wi-Fi hotspot feature on the Nokia Asha 311. AM using this phone and have gone through all the settings but no Wi-Fi hotspot settings.

There may be an app out there for Wi-Fi hotspot but am not sure.
