After updating to Android 10, Wi-Fi hotspot feature has no internet connectivity.
0
Yesterday, after updating to Android 10, everything went smoothly but my devices, when connected, show no internet access.  So far I've tried a Windows 10 laptop and another phone.  I have done a Network Setting Reset on my phone, but it did not help.  Any other ideas I could try?  This is the same across bluetooth, usb tether, and WiFi using Android 10 OS.  If I use pdanet's functionality it works, but my carrier kicks me off after about 20 minutes.  I confirmed with my provider I have tethering and hotspot on my account (AT&T).

For me, I can turn on the hotspot without a hotspot plan.

Hi Justin,
 
The WiFi hotspot functionality works fine with my Pixel 3 XL on Q for me.
 
Please try fully powering off and restarting
 
Also, restarting the phone into Safe Mode where all 3rd-party apps are disabled would also be worth a try. .

This didn't seem to work, though I hadn't thought of it - I forced the radio on with data in safe mode and it still wouldn't connect.  Thanks for the suggestion!  I'll try factory resetting and go from there.

Chatted with Google support yesterday and the steps they walked me through seem to have solved my problem: no wifi disconnects since I did this (and it did not involve factory reset, whew!):

Go to settings > System > Advance > Reset options > Reset WiFi, Bluetooth and mobile network.
... If Pixel on Google Fi and no SIM card, uncheck the box to clear SIMs.

Go to settings > Apps and notifications > See all apps > Settings > Force stop.

Go to settings > Apps and notifications > See all apps > Settings > Storage > Clear storage.

Go to settings > Apps and notifications > See all apps > Settings > Three vertical dots on the top right corner > Uninstall updates.
--- skip if no three dots (I skipped this cuz no three dots)

Restart the device for the settings to be applied and check if the WiFi stays connected.

You mean to go into the applications and notifications menu and click one by one forcing stop, clearing storage and uninstalling update?
That seems to be really time consuming for me. I've got a whole lot of applications installed (as most people, I presume).

Same here on pixel 1 xl. WiFi tethering stopped to work after updating to stable Android 10. Other devices connect to WiFi hotspot fine, although they got no internet connection. Tried to reset network settings, no effect.

In the past I had to use the tether_dun_required to 0 via ADB; in this Android 10 this does not work any more;

factory reset did fix the issue for me (I wasted my time trying everything else before).

Worst of all, Samsung did download a new update without my consent and I was simply unable to reject it !

The problem came back immediately.

I will try to stay away from Samsung smartphones in the future, it seems like they are trying to push their broken tech very aggressively.
