Connecting with a IPHONE 5S hotspot to a Lenovo computer......solution.


Recommended Posts

About two years ago my Lenovo laptops quit connecting to the hot spot on my 5S. It drove me nuts....and finally!!! I found the solution. 

Here are the instructions:

Method 2:
Disable the IP Helper service:

a. Press "Windows" + R key. It will open run Window. Type "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

b. Scroll down to the IP Helper service, right click on it and select Properties

c. In the dropdown box that says "Automatic" or "Manual", set it to Disabled and then click on "Apply"

d. Then click on "Stop" to stop the service from running in the current session.

Here is the link you have to scroll down for the IP Helper service. It needs to be Disabled.: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-networking/unable-to-connect-my-iphone-5s-hotspot-to-my/326c07dc-45f2-4970-8019-7f6e37787c8c
