Unable to use iPhone WiFi tethering w/ dongle


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm having no luck with using my wireless hotspot (iPhone XR, IOS 13.1) on the Tetra via a wireless dongle plugged into the back of the Tetra. My coworkers have Android phones (Pixel 3 and OnePlus 6T), and I am able to use their hotspots just fine. Very baffled by this, as other devices can use my iPhone hotspot with no issues.


Tested with Tetra firmware v 2.4.1 and 2.5.4

Dongle is the Ralink 5370 chipset


Any help is appreciated.

That is interesting.  Have you double checked your networking settings on the Tetra are correct for connection on the iPhone hotspot network?

As long as settings are correct, it should just act like a normal wifi connection. May also try connecting with wlan1 to see if it is something with the 5370 adapter.

I'm not familiar with the iPhone XR so not sure what settings are available for its hotspot feature.
