    Try reinstalling your hotspot

    This works in 20.04

    Re: hotspot not visible in 20.04

    Sorry but what i mean is that my laptop is not showing my mobile's hotspot name in visible networks of wifi settings.
    I want to connect my laptop to my mobile hotspot and not to create a hotspot using my laptop.

    Oh...
    That's how I also hook up to the internet. At times I need to reboot my phone so the connection will show up. Have you tried that? And there are times when a reboot of ubuntu NetworkManager is necessary, even though it refreshes itself. That's all I have

    yeah sometimes when I restart my Laptop it starts working but again after 1 to 3 hours it stops. And its a pain to restart the laptop everytime this happens. I will try rebooting the network manager and report.

    There are different ways of doing this

    I'm on a virtual system and cannot test the different methods.

    Re: hotspot not visible in 20.04

    Is your driver up to date?

    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network && inxi -n
    Open Software Updater and go to Settings>Drivers. That will check for drivers.

    Also check syslog for any clues
    Code:
    cat /var/log/syslog
    And there is this

    I currently have nothing else to offer
