Hi,

Yesterday i was able to connect to the internet thru my cell phone, running it as an wifi hotspot. I'm on Ghostbsd 19.04. But today no matter how many times i turn on and of wifi on the computer nor does it work to turn of the hot spot on the cell phone.

I see alot of other available wifi connections in the network manager but i have no use for them.

Any advice on this mattter?

Another question related to this, how do i connect to a network which is not listed under available connections in the network manager? Command line fu? :)

I got it to work by changing the hotspots frequency, from 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz.
