My USB modem has issues so my Mac doesn't recognize it. I created an ad hoc wifi hotspot on my Windows 7 laptop with WPA2 encryption and shared the internet. My Macbook Pro sees the wireless network but when I enter the password I get a connection failed warning. I tried connecting also with my iPhone and before I entered the password I got a messag/e that "MyWirelessNetwork" is not connected to the internet. How can I solve this issue
The first step is to run the Wireless Diagnostic from the Mac since it's easy. There are iOS diagnostics, but you'll have the best luck determining why OS X won't connect to the network. From there, the iPhone issue will likely be solved, but if not you'll have a smaller problem to solve.
Option click your WiFi icon in the menu bar (place it there in network settings if it's absent) and then select Wireless Diagnostics.
