  • Hi,

    Apple refers to Tethering as "Personal Hotspot". It relies on drivers delivered with the latest version of Itunes.


    Check here for the manual to setup tethering: http://www.apple.com/support/country/?dest=manuals

    I would recommend removing the existing connection with your phone and then uninstalling and reinstalling Itunes as a first step in troubleshooting.

    If that is not succesfull, check Windows update and your computer manufacturer website for possible driver updates.
