    Problem:
    Some Intranet or Ethernet connections with Windows 10 will fail to connect to an iPhone Personal Hotspot. The connection cycles on and off. Connecting with a USB cable works fine.

    Diagnosis:
    Windows 10 has trouble finalizing the connection if spaces are in the Hotspot name.

    Solution:
    Remove any spaces from your iPhone name. For example, change "Doug's iPhone" to Doug's_iPhone".

    I just switched from a Windows phone to an iphone 6s+ and left ATT & went with Verizon. Going to retire soon and become a full time RVr and heard this setup would work the best for RV'rs. Anyway, I don't recall naming my iphone. Do you do that somewhere in Settings? I also purchased and setup a myfi unit so I probably won't use my phone that much as a hotspot but I still would like to follow your suggestion. It looks like you purchase the 128 gig iphone. I thought 64 gig would do me since I keep most of my videos and music on my Surface or a thumb drive.

    Good plan.
    Name your new phone in Settings, General.
