Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

i have tried to use my iphone hotspot in its wi-fi mode, usb and bluetooth to connect to my hp 17 inch laptop. most laptops seem to be able to connect to an iphone hotspot. why can’t this one? it seems to be able to be used as a hotspot:

i saw instructions as how to detect a hotspot; but they don’t work. please advise. i have windows 10 64 bit.

Please use the following steps

 

  • Turn on Hotspot on your iPhone first,
  • Allow your machine to search for its SSID (similarto the  way to connect notebook to router)
  • Enter the code (pass phrase) on iPhone to your machine and tick automatically to connect)

From next time, no need to enter code (pass phrase)

 

Regards.
