When using iOS USB tethering, it is important to not be connected to the DataHub Wi-Fi at the same time, as this can cause a loopback scenario.

For example, your iPhone is connected to the Wi-Fi from the DataHub to get internet, and then you try to share your internet on your phone through USB tethering. In this situation, you should go to the iPhone Wi-Fi settings and select the DataHub Wi-Fi, then select Forget Network.

Further troubleshooting steps:

  • Restart the iPhone used for tethering.

  • Make sure the latest iOS update is installed – Failing to update your iPhone could impact performance and cause issues.

  • Verify that your cellular data plan allows hot spotting, as some plans may not offer this feature, which would prevent the tethering option from functioning.

  • Reset your iPhone Network – resetting your network can easily fix a tethering issue. To Reset your Network Settings go to Settings > General > Transfer or Reset [Device] > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This also resets Wi-Fi networks and passwords, cellular settings, and VPN and APN settings that you've used before.
