    iPhone 4S tethering


    Hi all,
    On windows 7 I used to use my iPhones hotspot to connect to the Internet. I recently purchased windows 8 and the install went fine. But now when I try to connect to the Internet through my phones hotspot it's not working. It's connected through USB by the way. Please help me set up the network connection. Thank you

    This happened to me as well. I went into settings on the right hand side of the start screen and selected devices, at the bottom of this page is an option regarding metering. Turn this on and try tethering again.

    Let me know if this resolves the issue like it did for me.
