Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2011 12:38 PM (in response to SteveCWatkins)A full reboot of the iPhone seems to have fixed the issue for me. Hold down both the home button and the sleep button until the phone shuts off. Keep holding until the Apple logo reappears. After the reset, it works again for me.iPhone 4; iPad 32gb WiFi, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 9, 2011 7:17 AM (in response to SteveCWatkins)i have been travelling, and found a few things.
laptop will connect to open WiFi connections like in the airport
other/random computer i found can connect to my iPhone without issue
laptop will connect to my WiFi at home
so the only combination that doesnt work seems to be laptop to iPhone, and perhaps laptop to other connections with different security.
not sure what to do with this, as it seems to be an incompatibility either with the security/settings/drivers or ???
any suggestions?iPhone, iPhone OS 3.1.3

I have a simplar problem. my laptop connects to my iPhone 4 hotspot fine by cable but won't connect using wif.
It is listed as one of the available wireless connections on my computer but when i try to connect it just tells me that the connection was cancelled?
It doesn't even ask for the password anymore. It used to work fine until a couple weeks ago. Not sure if I turned something on or off in my phone?

solved the problem... right clicked on my iPhone listed in the wireless available connections list on my laptop. slected properties... then retyped my iPhone's hotspot password in there. retried to connect and success!

Just a quick note for anyone having this problem... I had the same problem, and managed to fix it by taking the apostrophe out of my iphone name.
e.g. If your iphone is called
if you change it to
(Instructions here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3965)
AND THEN TURN YOUR PHONE OFF AND ON AGAIN
you should find that you can connect no problem (unless you have other issues as well of course!)
