The Windows 10 June 2022 Cumulative Update is now available for all supported operating system versions. This month’s cumulative update fixed several issues, including a bug that prevented Microsoft Excel and Outlook from starting. Fixed another bug affecting the Internet Explorer mode window.
Although the list of fixes in the June 2022 update (KB5014699) for Windows 10 is taking quite a long time, as the company has solved many problems, Microsoft has also issued a warning. According to the updated release notes, a bug in the Windows 10 June 2022 update could break the operating system’s Wi-Fi hotspot function.
It is quite common to use a smartphone or tablet as a personal hotspot to share the super fast 5G wireless internet connection with other devices at any time. On Windows it is also possible to create a hotspot and share the internet with other devices. You can even use Windows 10’s built-in hotspot feature as a Wi-Fi extender.
After Windows 10 June 2022 Update, users may not be able to use the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. This has been confirmed in reports on Feedback Hub:
“After installing KB5014699 I had issues with network connections resetting every 5 minutes. This includes RDP sessions, SMB sessions and a session between the bridge and an IoT device. When I disabled the Network Bridge, I need for my work with the IoT device, the problem is gone,” commented one of the affected users.
“Turning on Internet Connection Sharing breaks the ability to access the Internet on the computer sharing the connection. Even sites running on localhost run forever and time out,” commented another user.
“Enabling ICS also destroys the ability to RDP to computers connected to the network adapter that is sharing the Internet connection. Notably, I can still connect to port 3389 via telnet on the computer sharing the connection, but the RDP client just runs “Configure Remote Session” forever, explained one of the affected users how the bug also broke RDP.
Microsoft has now been quiet documentation to flag a bug where users encounter unexpected issues when using the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. If you are affected, the host device may lose its connection to the Internet.
In other words, this bug can break your device’s Wi-Fi. If your device’s internet connection has been acting weird lately, it’s probably because of the cumulative update. You can resolve the issue and restore Internet access on the host device by disabling the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. Follow these steps to completely disable the Wi-Fi hotspot:
- Open the Start menu.
- Open Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile hotspot.
- Under ‘Share my internet connection from’, make sure the ‘Share my internet connection with other devices’ option is turned off.
In most cases, following these steps should reduce Windows 11’s Wi-Fi issues.
