[Please help] Infinix Note 3 hotspot not appearing in Wi-Fi network lists of Window 10

#1

Few days ago I upgraded my laptop to win10 ,. Now my Infinix Note 3 hotspot wifi network is no longer appearing in my Win 10 Network list. (my NOte 3 is running Android 7.0).

I rebooted my Android and my laptop but still not working.

Anyone else have this problem? I did some google searching and searched this forum and didn't find anything.

My friend has another laptop with the same OS and his wifi network detect my phone.

And my laptop can also detect other hotspots but  not just my phone,

please help.

if a second PC still cant detect the Hotspot, then the problem is likely from the phone.
try 
* changing the Hotspot name
* factory resetting the device
also check if the Hotspot properly turns on or it goes off immediately you turn it on

Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Manage Wi-Fi Settings > Manage known networks
check if your Hotspot is listed there

done that several times  but wat i noticed is if i downgrade back to Android 6.0 , my PC will detect it fine but back to 7.0 , it will not .

i really want to be using 7.0 , i dont know if anybody is having the same problem.

and it worked fine before i upgraded my PC to WIN10

This is exactly the same problem i am having. It started after i upgraded to Android 7.0. My hotspot no longer shows in list of wireless on my Windows 7 (A few times it shows i.e 1 of 20 attempts). I thought it was issues with my Windows OS so i had to format my laptop but still same. A few times it shows on other android devices but rare.

I really need a solution to this as i dont want to downgrade to Android 6.0
