    I am currently running OxygenOS 3.0.2. Have not bothered to update, as it is fairly stable and the list of bugs being reported is still huge.

    I am currently at a remote location, where my only access to the internet is mobile broadband and I am currently teatering my OnePlus 2 and I have 2 phones and 1 laptop connected to it.

    There seems to be way too much data consumption, and I would like to know

    how to lookup the number of devices teatherd to my OPT and if possible their MAC id's.

    Go into Hotspot settings and check how many devices are connected. Then change the password and connect the devices again

    Yes i think there's a option in tethering and Portable Hotspot to check who is connected to your phone. Go to settings >more>tethering and Portable Hotspot

    There was a time where I would wait impatiently for an OTA to come out, and update as soon as they did.But suffered a lot of bugs, and even data loss when the updates were broken.Now I wait for a stable update, before updating.There are still lots of issues with the latest OTA, with people reporting issues on the forum

    Do any of the WiFi tethering options expand into other menus?

    When you make wifi tether option active then this option becomes visible so try to make it active then see. Because you have attachend screenshot without enabling it.
