Good Morning,


I have just purchased a Cat S61 smart phone. I can connect to the hotspot but I have no internet access. 


any ideas?

Was this helpful?

Hey 24bit, welcome to CrowdSupport!


Any change since you posted this?


While it's not a Telstra handset, it should still be able to pull the required settings from the network. The first thing I would try is:


Settings -> Network & Internet -> Mobile Network -> Advanced -> Access Point Names


To see if anything is populated there. If there is not, try the hamburger (three dot) button at the top right, and hit "reset to default."


If nothing happens, you'll need to manually configure the APNs which you can find here: https://tel.st/q5zf7


The community will correct me I'm sure, but there is a third APN off of which the Hotspot Function works, telstra.internet, with settings the same as the telstra.wap one published on the link above. According to my Pixel 2 XL, it is called "Telstra Broadband."

Hey big_dan, I'm in the same boat as you. Did you have any luck with your hotspot internet access?
