Hi New to this forum and hopefully someone can help me. I had my iphone 4s set up as a hotspot and everything was working great until I decided to change the password for the hotspot on my phone, now it shows up on my wireless net devices but wont reconnect and doesnt even ask for a password. I do have internet by useing the usb cord but would like to get my wifi working again. My laptop is a windows 7 unit. I have also rebooted both the laptop and the phone.
Thanks

You have to go into the networks on your PC and remove your phone from the network list then it will ask you for the password again.

This!

Your laptop needs to have the iPhone removed from the known network list as it will not reconnect till you do
