    When I enable the "Hotspot on my Z10, I then try to use this for my internet connection for my tablet while travelling, but it then asks me for my "Network Security Key". Where do I find this key?

    In Hotspot press the Button on the Toolbar called Configure- Third one down in the list is a Text Input called Password- press the little eye reveal button on the right side of the Text input.

    Is the Z10 asking for the key or the laptop?
    If laptop, then its the password you are setting the Hotspot with.
    To view this:
    • Turn on the Hotspot on your Z10.
    • Tap Configure and the bottom of the screen.
    • To the right of the Password slot, tap the "eye" icon to unmask the password.
    • This will be the "Network Key" needed to allow the laptop to connect to the Hotspot.


    If the Z10 is asking for a "Network Key", then you may have not completed the Hotspot setup.
    To set it up:
    • Turn off the Hotspot.
    • Tap the Configure icon at the bottom of the screen.
    • You can use the default Hotspot name, or change it to your own.
    • You can enter a password for the Hotspot, tap the "eye" icon to unmask what you type in.
    • Set the Inactivity Time slide to your preference, this lets the device shut off the Hotspot to save battery power if no one is using it.
    • Toggle the "Allow connected devices...." to your preference, this activates or deactivates the ability for other users of the Hotspot to exchange data.
    • Tap Save at the upper right when done.
