How Do I Get Around The 5 Device Connection Limit For Wi-Fi Hotspots?

Question: How Do I Get Around The 5 Device Connection Limit For Wi-Fi Hotspots?

Is there any way to connect more than five devices to my iPad hotspot?

Asked by Don O.

Answer:

Yes, it is possible albeit a little convoluted. Connect to your hotspot from a Mac and then go to System Preferences > Sharing in OS X. Turn on Internet Sharing on the Mac and proceed to setup the internet-sharing network. Once created, all other devices can then connect to the internet via the Mac which is actually going through your hotspot.
