I have a laptop running Windows 8.1 (without Update 1). I have setup ICS like this:
- Charms > Settings > Network > Network Name (Mobile Broadband)
- Share this Connection = on
It turns on successfully, and my mobile (Lumia 520 with the 8.1 Cyan update) picks it up and connects, but then says that there is no internet access.
Interestingly enough, it was connected yesterday - but half way through my mobile updating apps, it just stopped. After checking WiFi settings, it gave the above message. Now it simply will not connect.
I have tried renaming the network; using a different USB port for my 4G stick; and restarting the associated service (ICS).
Anything else I could do to resolve this? Could my Lumia be the issue? If so, what can I do to check and resolve?
(P.S: I don't want to use the command line method in Windows to share the connection. The built-in method worked before, and so it should be fixable. Besides, I'm sure that the built-in method uses a similar methodology to what you would do in a previous OS.)
