I have been trying and failing to connect my phone (Samsung GT-I8150, running CM10.2) to my Lenovo T420 laptop via Windows 7's "hostednetwork" facility.
The hostednetwork's SSID is visible in my phone, but after I fill in the password, it goes "Connecting" for several seconds, then back to "Saved". No error, no nothing.
I know hostednetwork works because I borrowed a colleague's phone, and his phone has no problem Connecting-Authenticating-Obtaining_IP.
Interestingly, I have no problems connecting my phone to a wifi router in a cafe, or in my home.
What could possibly be the problem between my phone and Windows 7's hostednetwork service?
Edit: To make things clear:
hostednetworkis Windows 7 facility to turn a laptop's wifi into an Access Point (Infrastructure mode)
- My colleague's phone is an Alcatel D662 (running stock Android GB)
