I recently replaced my S9 with an S22 the past week and I use my phones internet hotspot to connect with my gaming laptop, an Asus Strix, CPU: AMD Ryzen9 5900HX, GPU: RTX3080, but since changing to the S22 my hotspot briefly loses connection in games every 2 minutes or less disconnecting me from games, however, if I connect to the phone Via Bluetooth the connection remains mostly stable but much slower, is there some way to fix this as I never had this problem in years of using my old S9 as a hotspot?

I would think you've had a change in your data plan and/or reached your high-speed limit and your carrier is throttling your connection.

Do you have developer mode on? Make sure you have "WiFi power saving" setting to OFF and set your connection to NOT METERED.

it is also possible the phone was heating up and so decided to turn off power draining operations to cool down.

I have same problem. Did you find any solution for this? My current solution is to switch Sim back to my old phone and use it for playing..
