    cannot ad hoc tether to my Touch Pro 2 phone


    So I have a clover trail tablet (Samsung 500t). It would detect the ad hoc network created by my Touch Pro 2 (win mobile 6.1, I am old school), then after I entered the pastphrase it would ask if I want to use as a home or public connection, but it would then get stucked on "verifying and connecting", eventually saying cannot connect to network.. My win 7 devices tether fine w my TP2 thr this ad hoc network created by TP2. Is this another of these annoying new quirks introduced by win 8 and clover trail that make no sense? Is there is a setting that I am missing? Pl help... win 8 is so annoying...

    There are many possible reasons why this tethering may not be working, most of which are covered in the thread below.
