The mobile hotspot feature may be used to share the Internet connection of a Windows PC with other devices over Wi-Fi.
Affected devices may not be able to connect to the Internet using the feature anymore.
After installing KB5014697, Windows devices might be unable use the Wi-Fi hotspot feature. When attempting to use the hotspot feature, the host device might lose the connection to the internet after a client device connects.
Microsoft suggests to disable the Wi-Fi hotspot feature to restore Internet access on the host. A guide to turn the functionality on or off is available for Windows 10 and 11 on Microsoft's support site.
A workaround to fix the issue is not available at the time.
Windows administrators may roll back the released update to restore the functionality.

Windows users who run the operating system on devices with ARM processors may not be able to sign-in to Azure Active Directory or Microsoft 365 after installing the June 2022 patches.
Affected are Windows 10 and 11 devices with ARM processors.
