    on 10.7.5 I create a hotspot through internet sharing setting. 128 bit WEP is selected as security type. However on my windows 8.1 laptop I cannot connect to this network.

    When there is no password on the network windows connects it without any problem but when there is password it somehow fails to connect.

    What can I do to solve this problem ?
    Thank you.

    sounds like a incompatibility somewhere? and why btw are you using WEP?
