Problem with Tethering

I have an Iphone 4S and I recently added tethering. The first time I tethered it to my laptop, it worked perfectly. But now every time I try it my laptop doesn't "see" the iphone connection at all. I am using a USB cable to do the tethering and I followed all the steps to turn on my personal hotspot and that seems to be working. Any ideas on why my laptop is not seeing the network?

You may need to refresh or repair the network, whatever your laptop O/S calls it. That problem comes up when switching from one network to another. The last resort is a laptop reboot.
