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?

Re: Problem with Tethering

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.
