S8 hotspot connection

I can connect to my S8 using win 8.1, but only as an open network. if I use the security with a password, windows wont connect. It wont show a password dialog box, just says it cant connect. 

 

did the reboot/ forget network thing, 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

 

Jon

Re: S8 hotspot connection

Can other devices connect to your S8 hotspot when its password protected? I would think it's an issue with your Win 8.1, your wireless card or the drivers if they can. Maybe checking for driver updates or removing the wireless driver and letting it reinstall may help.

Re: S8 hotspot connection

Hi @jonc, looks like changes made in Windows 8.1 are causing this issue. Let us know if what @Yeldarb suggested helped you out. I notice by searching Windows forums that there are apps for hot-spotting that are an effective work around for this issue.
