    Found solution to this issue. Seems like built in Windows 8.1 wireless driver issue. My Dell Latitude laptop works fine on all wifi other than my Sprint EVO LTE enabled hotspot. Downloaded and installed latest Dell wireless drivers bam! internet connection started working. Hope this help others that is looking for solution with Windows 8 connecting to hotspot issues.
