    Hi folks,

    I tried connecting my z30 mobile hotspot to my windows 8 laptop but my system couldn't find the device.

    It's not from the phone though, I tried connecting it with a windows 7 laptop as well and it worked.

    Have anyone experienced this issue and did you get a solution to it? Sharing it would be appreciated. I just don't want to downgrade back to windows 7 and this leaves me with USB internet tethering.

    I have a windows 8 laptop and I connect without issues but I don't use it that much as I have a very stable wi-fi connection.

    I don't know...it's just weird.

    Did you in any way update the wireless driver on your pc. I just don't get it, my BB 9900 mobile hotspot works perfectly

    Perhaps it's wifi hardware dependent? Have you configured your Windows 8 machine to only use 5Ghz channels, or only one of "ac/n/g/b/a" networks?

    Call Microsoft and ask them that you want a downgrade to windows 7.
    Its always free to downgrade your OS.
    Your Blackberry isnt the problem its windows 8.
