tethering on lumia 630 anyone got it working?

Despite following all the forum advice I am unable to get tethering working on my Lumia 630.

 

I am on GiffGaff with a £10 goodie bag which allows tethering.

 

I bought the phone from GiffGaff, so should be no problems around unlocking.

 

I am connecting from a win7 laptop 64 bit .

 

I can connect to the device & see 1 guest connected. But I cannot bring up any web pages on my laptop.

 

Internet works on the lumia 630 directly, so its not a problem with internet setup on my device.

 

Anyone got this working in similar setup?

Did your computer get an IP address assigned?

Internet tethering by connecting to USB port is not supported by WP8. Not sure about WP8.1.

Because you mention that, you are about Wi-Fi, aren’t you?

Well, the phone sees the PC and it is sharing the connection with it as it says so in the settings screen.. There is several settings on the PC which may prevent the actual connection to be available so I suggest you focus there..

Re: tethering on lumia 630 anyone got it working?

In your Windows computer, in its Device Manager, are you able to determine the manufacturer (and model) of your Wi-Fi card? That might help to find related threads. Furthermore, did you try to lower the MTU?
