My laptop is not discovering my phone's hot spot.

My laptop cannot discover my phone's hotspot but other laptops can. I have tried troubleshooting the network adapter. Updating the network adapter and even manually connecting the network but all have not provided me a solution. This is really affecting my school schedule and j need a solution. Please what do you think I should do.

@EfezinoEe To use Hotspot 2.0 networks in public places like airports and cafes, turn on Let me use Online Sign-up to get connected. When this is turned on, you can see a list of network providers after you choose a Hotspot 2.0 network.


After successfully validating your credentials with Online Sign-Up, your device is connected to the Hotspot 2.0 network. The Online Sign-Up is used only once and you will be automatically connected to that network the next time your device is in range.


Hotspot 2.0 networks are a new wireless standard designed to make it easier and more secure to connect to public Wi-Fi hotspots.

I hope that resolves the issue affecting the school schedule.
