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.
