      Can you share more specifics about what you do on your Windows 8 and what errors you receive?

    I am having a personal hotspot on my mac. All my apple devices are able to access internet through it. Now when I am trying to connect my windows 8. It gives me an error “Can’t connect to this network”.
    1. I tried manually adding the network..by going on “manually connect to wireless network”. There I enter my network name..security type as WEP (as on mac its on WEP encryption..I have set on 40bits)..then the security key..hit next..I got this option as ” Change connection settings” > Security.I cannot find the option “Shared” in it. All I see is
    a. no authentication
    b. WPA Personal
    c. WPA2 Personal
    d. WPA Enterprise
    e. WPA2 Enterprise
    f. 802.1X
    So how to do this sharing..so that I can access internet on my windows 8 through my mac?
