No internet on wifi hotspot

Tried a search on here, but still no further forward. Created a wi-fi hotspot on my Android 7 phone plusnet sim. Laptop connects to it but says no internet connection available. Any ideas where to start please.

@M3SNU-Steve yeah, I've already had a look at that post, tried adding a new APN without success. I think it the phone type which is the problem Doogee S60. I'm charging up a old handset see if the mobile hotspot with Plusnet sim works with that.

@malgpz900 

PlusNet don't restrict tethering.

some phones don't seem to pick up the correct APN type by default to enable tethering.

As described in this https://chromepickup.com/wifi-tethering-on-android-doesnt-work-heres-how-to-solve-it/ , with some phones, adding dun to the APN type will work, others will require the tether_dun_required setting to be made.
