User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140716183446

Steps to reproduce:

1) Click on "Settings"
2) Go to "Internet sharing"
3) There is a Wi-fi hotspot option


Actual results:

You can enable Wi-fi hotspot but then Wi-fi is disconnected. Device needs mobile data connection.


Expected results:

Flatfish only has Wi-fi and doesn't support SIM cards. There is no mobile data connection so this feature will not work.

I think it will be useful if we able support STA+AP or USB sharing network from/to host in future.

Indeed, it is almost no benefit at the moment.

However, the host of user still can connect to the Tablet via the wifi hotspot feature, without Internet, but it constitute a LAN, maybe there will be particular purpose at the moment or future, like files sharing via wifi LAN.
