Can't connect to wifi with my cell phone that has a hot spot

I never have trouble connecting to wifi in a building with wireless but tried to connect in the car as my phone is a hot spot and am unable to do so.  Only suggestion was to get rid of MAC filter.  I have no idea where to find this or how to do it.  Any help appreciated.

Re: Can't connect to wifi with my cell phone that has a hot spot

My phone is a moblie hot spot and I have no problems. I turn on the hot spot on the phone first then I turn on the nook and check the web settings to make sure the nook is picking up the phone, sometimes I have to tell the nook to connect with the phone wifi because it is picking up other wifi's that are in the area.

hope that helps

It has been reported that NOOK Color will not connect to ad-hoc networks.  It wouldn't surprise me to find out that NOOK Tablet is the same.

 

If your phone is creating an ad-hoc network, this is probably your problem.
