Currently, I have a broadband Internet connection that's connected through an ethernet. I need to share this connection with my family's mobile devices and laptops. However, when I try this using the Windows 10 mobile hotspot, I get this message: We can't setup mobile hotspot because your PC doesn't have an Ethernet, Wi-Fi or cellular data connection. But I am connected to the broadband. What should I do to get this connected?

    Several reasons are there. First check if you have latest driver for network adapter/ Ethernet card. Next run the network adapter troubleshooter.On the Windows 10 search bar & type troubleshooting then click troubleshooting from the list shown. Click view all on the left pane, then click on network adapter. Now click on next & follow the on-screen instructions. You can check the configuration/settings from here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/instantanswers/c60dcfa3-c596-41d4-8c1a-b0d738e1d9fd
