Are there settings for my mobile hotspot where I can assign ip addresses?

I was wondering if there were settings like logging onto the domain of a router. Is there a way to assign ip addesses to certain devices that connect? I am using my Gs3 phone. Any help would be appreciated.

msnagyjr,

Great question! There is not a way to assign an IP address to a particular device. You can control what devcies are able to connect to your mobile hotspot though the "Allowed devcie list". Settings>Mobile Hotspot (On)>Allowed device list.

Well I use my hotspot for my xbox when my internet is down. I have never had a problem before with using it, and now all of a sudden I have problems with my xbox not getting an ip address.

Thanks for the info masagyjr,

Has your hotspot recently completed any software updates? It's possible that the new software is not compatible with using Xbox.

Thank you,

I appreciate your reply, msnagyjr. I apologize there is no way to downgrade the software. Have you been able to connect the Hotspot to other devices?

Thank you,
