    iPhone 6 - iOS 8.1
    MacbookPro Retina - Yosemite

    Before upgrading to Yosemite & iOS 8.1 I used the old tethering system " Personal Hotspot " with no problem.

    Now I've upgraded we are supposed to have " Instant Hotspot ". Which not only
    I can not get to work, but I can't use the old " Personal Hotspot ". :(:(

    I can see the phone in the WiFi listing, but can't connect.

    Can anyone help me get it going?

    Thanks :)

    Once I rebooted both iPad and iPhone, it has worked on my devices since then.

    I can connect to the Instant Hotspot after initial setup. However, when I try to bring the hotspot down, this is where the trouble starts. I tried doing that by either:

    - Switching off bluetooth on the Phone


    - Selecting another wifi network on the Mac

    In both instances, the menu bar wifi dropdown remained stuck and I got a nice beach ball. I had to either kill SystemUIServer or logout to get rid of the beach ball.
