It would connect the same way you connect to any WiFi. It is possible, however, that the hotspot on your device doesn't allow access via a computer, or that the carrier/service provider has a limitation or even a restriction on it due to usage. Happens all the time. You can try the following to connect, just like you would to a router/modem WiFi connection. However, if it doesn't work, and restarting the device you are using as a hotspot doesn't help either, then you may not be able to use the device that way. You may also want to test connecting the laptop to regular WiFi connections and see if they work fine. If they do, then it is definitely the hotspot that is the problem. If, however, it won't connect to them either, then the WiFi card on the laptop may be the problem and need replacing.

Try this....

1. Go to "Control Panel".

2. Next go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing".

3. Now click on "Manage Wireless Networks".

4. On this screen, remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu.

5. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.

6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "WiFi networks".

7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect".

8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your WiFi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected.


Another way to try it is to...

1. Go to "Settings".
2. Click on "Network & Security" and then click on "WiFi".
3. Now click "Manage known networks".
4. Select the WiFi connection you want to remove.
5. Click the "Forget" button.
6. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.
7. Once the computer is fully reloaded again go to "Settings".
8. Click on "Network & Security" and then click on "WiFi".
9. Now click "Manage known networks".
10. Click "Add a new network" and enter the network name.
11. Using the drop-down menu, select the "network security type".
12. Check the "Connect automatically" option.
13. Now check the "Connect even if the network is not broadcasting" option and click "Save".

Once you have completed these steps, whenever the device is within range of that particular network, it should automatically connect to it.
