    Problems With Shared Network


    I have some kind of an networking issue. The problem is that either Win8 or Win8.1 (just updated it) can connect to any internet shared through any mobile devices (iPhone5 & iPhone 5s), but I can connect to any other wireless networks. I have tried to connect to this iOS shared network through Win7 (Other pc) and it connects succesfully without any problems. The actual iOS networks shows up in Network List, but just can't connect to it and keeps timing out.

    What is the problem?

    It helps to know if this is a tablet, desktop, laptop, transformer. Also helps to know what the manufacturer & model of the system is. Same with how you are trying to connect to wireless networks. Is it through the Metro interface or Desktop.
