Hello, I just followed this How-To Geek tutorial yesterday for giving internet with my W8 laptop to my Android phone.
It worked at first, but this morning it didn't work (it appeared this "The hosted network couldn’t be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation"), so I erased all the configuration and started from the beginning.
Now my laptop creates the wifi network, but my mobile doesn't connect. It is always doing the authentication and never gets an IP address. I don't know what is wrong neither what to do. I accept suggestions.
