Laptop hotspot not detected by other laptop

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-ac122tu
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello Team,


The issue is that,  the hotspot shared from my laptop is being connected to android phones, but it is not detected by other laptops.


Those other laptops can detect other WiFis, but not mine (the hotspot from my laptop).


I checked for settings, to find out, if there is any limitations on the number of devies connected, but its not that.


I have reinstalled all the network adapter drivers and restarted my laptop, but no use.


Please help me regarding the issue!!!
