Microsoft confirmed two new issues, which affect devices running most supported client and server versions of Windows.

Wi-Fi Hotspot functionality broken

The released updates break Wi-Fi hotspot functionality on devices with the latest patch installed. The issue affects Windows client and server versions, including Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Server 2022 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

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.

Microsoft Service sign-ins broken on ARM devices

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.

After installing KB5014697 on a Windows Arm-based devices, you might be unable to sign in using Azure Active Directory (AAD). Apps and services which use Azure Active Directory to sign in, might also be affected. Some scenarios which might be affected are VPN connections, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, and Outlook. Note: This issue only affects Windows devices which are using Arm processors.

Microsoft suggest that affected users use the web versions of Microsoft applications until the issue is patched.

Microsoft is investigating both issues at the time and plans to "provide an update in an upcoming release".

    That update didn’t break just the WiFi hot spot feature. It broke everything related to connection sharing.

    If you right click on any network connection in “Network and Sharing Center” and try to use the options in the Sharing tab in Properties you will lose the connection to the internet.

    I can’t even share the internet connection from one lan card to another anymore.

    I use the mobile hotspot on pc to effectively extend and get a stronger wifi connection to my phone. I could imagine more people doing the same or something similar for a tv maybe. Really bummed about this update

    I caught some reports of WiFi hotspot trouble on a couple of “security” sites a couple of days ago, but I decided to go ahead and update anyway. I’ve never used my computer as a WiFi hotspot, and I don’t anticipate needing to before Microsoft fixes the issue, so as Sir Humphrey Appleby might say, “NMP” (not my problem). Ditto for the ARM CPU issue. If memory serves, I did more or less the same thing last month, though I no longer remember what the particular “issues” were.

    Just a quick reminder to everyone that it was back in late 2014 through early 2015 that Microsoft fired most of its in-house beta testers and quality-assurance staff, in order to “force coders to take responsibility for their own code.” By some weird coincidence, that’s around the same time that we began seeing a big uptick in seriously buggy updates. I guess it must have something to do with solar flares and the alignment of the planets, which we all can agree are beyond Microsoft’s control…

      Excellent point. I expect I’d have better luck reading tea leaves and Tarot cards to divine upcoming Windows issues than waiting for MS to fix them.

      Or, just, suspect printers. Somehow it’s always printers.

    I don’t have any hotspots or ARMs but it plain broke my cable internet – just wouldn’t connect with KB5014699, and firefox couldn’t even launch with it – just nothing happened after clicking its icon, uninstalled KB5014699 and all is back to normal again.

    Professional companies with many years of experience with commercial products such as Microsoft recommend “To disable the Wi-Fi hotspot feature to restore Internet access on the host.”

    or, for example:

    Also 200 billion ARM chips driven devices may not be able to sign-in to a product like the Azure Active Directory or Microsoft 365.
    There are also problems with Arm devices for VPN connections, Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, and Outlook.
    Users can use the web versions of Microsoft applications until the issue is patched so there share there private data with Microsoft, the company’s Microsoft is selling the users there data to, hackers, etc.

    Just a normal month in the world of Microsoft products. Nothing special.

    I am shocked beyond comprehension. Lucky for Microsoft no one one the planet has ever and will not ever use a mobile hotspot. Dodged a bullet there, but no biggie. No need to fix a minor issue like this anytime soon, just release a public statement that it’s a feature and you’re holding your computer wrong and that you can try and fix it by signing in with a Microsoft account.
