    New HD owner. I am having problems with the hotspot not connecting wit my windows 7 pc. My tablet connects fine so I don't believe the phone is the issue. The pc will actually connect to the phone but no internet access. Any help would be much appreciated.

    After reading your post, I tried connecting a Win 7 laptop via the Hotspot.

    Most of the work was on the Windows side. I had to choose the proper security type (WPA2), for "personal" security, and select "none" for "enterprise security. That allowed me to connect to the phone, but it showed "No Internet." I went into the Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center, and it showed a red X between the "multiple networks" icon and the Internet icon. I hovered over this, and selected "Repair" and it did its magic and started working.

    Gotta love Microsoft.
