    Android hotspot, cannot connect to this network


    1st post from complete novice.
    I updated my Lenovo Yoga 730 to latest win10 1909 I think and now can't connect to my Android phone hotspot. I tried to connect to my wife's Android hotspot as well without luck.
    All the solutions for "Cannot connect to this network" you on the Web require the removal of the network adapters to then a reboot to force a reinstall. My concern is they are not specific about what adaptor nor will it allow a new download.
    Please help.

    :)
