Guide to Share Internet on Redmi K60 Ultra (Tutorial)

In this blog post, we will discuss how to share the internet on Redmi K60 Ultra. This smartphone offers high-speed internet connectivity and supports almost all types of network bands.

However, there may be times when you want to share your phone’s data connection with other devices such as laptops or tablets. This is where the internet sharing feature comes in handy.

The Importance of Internet Sharing

In today’s interconnected digital era, the need for internet sharing has become increasingly important. It allows us to stay connected, even in locations where traditional Wi-Fi networks are unavailable, leveraging the mobile data of one device to provide internet access to others.

Internet sharing can be a lifesaver during travel or in instances of home internet downtime. Beyond convenience, it also promotes resource optimization by allowing multiple devices to utilize a single data plan, which can be particularly useful when managing data usage on limited plans.

Various Methods to Share Internet on Redmi K60 Ultra

Before creating a mobile hotspot, you must ensure that your smartphone has an active data plan and that mobile data is activated. This can be through Wi-Fi or mobile data. You can check this by going to the Settings menu.

Method 1: Using Mobile Hotspot

The Redmi K60 Ultra has a built-in feature called “Mobile hotspot” that allows you to share your internet connection with other devices. Before turning it on, you need to set up a Portable hotspot first. To enable this feature, follow the steps below:

Using Mobile Hotspot

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access the notification panel.
  2. Tap on the gear-shaped settings icon to access the device settings.
  3. Navigating to “Connection & sharing”.
  4. Tap on the “Portable hotspot” option.
  5. Then again tap on “Set up portable hotspot”.

Set up a Portable Hotspot

  • Network Name: If you find that you want to change the name of this network, you can easily do so by clicking on the “Network name” section and editing the name as per your preference.
  • Hotspot Password: Input your chosen password for the hotspot. Ensure that it is at least 8 characters long for optimal security.
  • Security: You can choose from different security types, with WPA3-Personal being the most advanced. However, select the appropriate protocol based on the device you are connecting, as some may only support older ones.
  • Select AP bands: In the “Select AP band” option, you can choose between the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band for internet sharing. The 5 GHz band offers better connectivity for short-range devices, while the 2.4 GHz band is better for long-range connections. Select the appropriate band based on your connection needs in the Wi-Fi settings.
  • Hide its SSID: MIUI on Redmi K60 Ultra lets you hide your Wi-Fi hotspot’s SSID, providing added security. By making your hotspot invisible to other devices, only those who know the exact network name can connect. Simply enable the “Hide its SSID” option in hotspot settings. Remember to manually input the network name on connecting devices, as it won’t be listed.

Now that your Mobile hotspot is set up, you can connect other devices to it. Simply go to the Wi-Fi settings on your device and select the network name (SSID) that you have set for your Mobile hotspot.

Enter the password if prompted and you should now be connected to the internet through your Redmi K60 Ultra.

Method 2: Sharing Internet via Bluetooth on Redmi K60 Ultra

With your Redmi K60 Ultra, you also have the option of sharing your internet connection via Bluetooth. This is particularly useful when dealing with devices that do not support Wi-Fi connectivity. To accomplish this, follow the steps below:

Sharing Internet via Bluetooth on

 

  • Navigate to “Settings”.
  • Tap on the “Connection & sharing” option.
  • Then select “Portable hotspot”.
  • Here, you’ll find the option “Bluetooth tethering”.
  • Toggle the switch to “On” and pair your Redmi K60 Ultra with the device to which you wish to share the internet connection.

Once the devices are paired, the internet should be accessible on the second device. Remember that Bluetooth tethering might result in slower internet speeds compared to Wi-Fi hotspot sharing due to the limitations inherent in Bluetooth technology.

Method 3: Sharing Internet via USB Tethering

USB Tethering is another effective way to share your internet connection with devices that do not have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth capabilities. Remember, this method requires a USB cable to connect your Redmi K60 Ultra with your PC. Here’s how to do it:

Sharing Internet via USB Tethering

 

  • Navigate to “Settings”.
  • Tap on the “Connection & sharing” option.
  • Then select “Portable hotspot”.
  • Look for the “USB tethering” option and toggle the switch to “On”.

The device will automatically install the necessary drivers for the connection, and your internet is ready to be shared. Once the cable is connected, the internet from your Redmi K60 Ultra will be accessible on your PC.

Keep in mind that while using USB tethering, your phone battery will drain slower as it also charges from the connected device. However, always ensure that you have a stable data connection to have a seamless internet-sharing experience.

Monitor and Manage Connected Devices

As the owner of the mobile hotspot, you can monitor and manage the devices connected to it.

Checking the Connected Devices List

  • On your Redmi K60 Ultra, go to the “Portable hotspot” option.
  • In the “Manage Devices” section, tap on “Connected devices”.
  • You can view the list of connected devices and their details, such as the device name and data usage.

Disconnecting or Blocking Devices

From the “Manage Devices” section, you can disconnect or block specific devices from accessing your hotspot if necessary.

Troubleshooting

Despite your best efforts, you may encounter connectivity issues with your mobile hotspot. This section provides some common troubleshooting tips.

  • Check your mobile data connection.
  • Restart your Redmi K60 Ultra.
  • Verify that the hotspot password is correct.
  • Check for any software updates on your device.

If you encounter persistent issues with your mobile hotspot, don’t hesitate to reach out to Redmi’s customer support for assistance.
