I just bought a new windows 8 laptop today and I can't get it to scan and pick up my Mobile hotspot! Any help is appreciated !
try a wi-fi usb if you can't get it too workclick on wi-fi settings on the bottom or try the Help program on it and type in wi-fi.
Maybe your wifi is turned off. There should be a key to turn it on and off...
Restart your laptop if you have to. I had to do it a couple times for mine.
