My HP chromebook 14 laptop has never connected to my portable Hotspot, as a matter of fact it does not detect it all. Please what could be the problem and possible solution. Thanks

Are you trying to do an ad-hoc network from the hotspot?  I would try using AP mode if possible as even Android phones will not display ad-hoc wireless networks

I'm trying to connect from my mobile phone, Leagoo Kiicker( Android OS). My tablet was able to connect succesfully but my Chromebook didn't.

Check to see if the hotspot is using 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz, the chromebook might not have support for 5Ghz

What do you mean by channel. Do you mean IPv4 & IPv6?

2.4Ghz wifi covers about 14 channels depending on what country you are from.  In the US, it is limited to 1-11 and some devices might not work on 12-14 no matter where you are
