Using a Hot Spot
Posted on 2013-10-22
I have a Verizon MiFi hot spot that I used to be able to connect my laptop PC, iPad and iPhone to. The hot spot failed and Verizon sent a new one. All devices see the new hot spot and attempt to connect. The iPhone and iPad have no problem accessing the internet, email etc but the Laptop PC sees the hot spot, tries to connect but fails. It is running Windows 7. I called Verizon tech support and since 2 of 3 devices connect they determined that the problem is with the PC. I took the PC to another location and connected to a different wireless network with no problem. I have rebooted the PC several times, rebooted the hot spot several times as well, removed the wireless adapter from Device Manager and let Windows re-install on reboot, removed all previous networks from the list of networks all with no success. Is there something I am missing? Something else I should try to get this laptop connected to the hot spot?
