    TETHERING! from Xperia T to laptop


    Hi there, sorry but its another question about 'limited' connectivity!!

    Just signed up to mobile contract and was given a Sony Xperia T especially good for tethering, I was told (!).
    Followed the setup on the phone - all good. Except my laptop running windows 8, shows limited connectivity - strong signal though.

    I have scanned forums to try and find an answer and have none so far.
    I get wifi connection from the flat share that Im in, works pretty well, never limited connection.

    I am ok with computers, but pretty basic to be honest i,e i may need high end explanations! -

    Would appreciate any help as the reason i signed this 2 yr contract was for the tethering abilities as I may soon be living in a van!
