I share my iPhones Internet connection as a wireless network. Recently, I started experiencing difficulty connecting to my mobile hotspot, with a generic error displayed 'cannot connect to this network.
I tried a few things such as:
- Restarting my phone.
- Change the password.
- Restarted Windows.
Interestingly, my Lumia 625 mobile hotspot connection worked just fine. So, isolated the problem and the mobile hotspot worked on my Surface Pro. The next thing I tried, turned out to be solution, delete and add the wireless connection again.
To do that, click Start > Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Wi-Fi Settings.
Select your wireless network, then click Forget.
Click View Available Network icon in the Notification Area, then connect again. You will be prompted to enter your password.
