    If my z10 is connected to a wifi network why is it that when I create a mobile hot spot with my z10 that the wifi connection is disabled forcing my phone to use mobile network data.

    Should I not be able to create a mobile hot spot on my Z10 that utilizes the wifi connection it has? I have tried everything to get this to work. Perhaps I'm missing something.

    Thanks in advance for any comments or help.

    First and foremost, it's a security concern. By allowing access to a network by circumventing possible security measures in place, you put the network and it's assets at risk. Just because you can access the network on your BlackBerry, doesn't mean that you are allowed to access it on your laptop via your BlackBerry.

    Secondly, by using the hot spot, you are using the device's wifi chip and antenna for host mode, accessing another wifi signal requires slave mode. Different uses are interfering with each other.

    Doesn't work that way....

    Mobile Hot Spot is for using your Mobile Network Connection and sharing it.

    What you want to do is turn your phone into a wireless repeater or extender.... don't know of anyway you can do that with a Z10.
