Hello,

I'm setting up a Chromecast without a router for a friend, an iPhone 11 hotspot will provide WiFi.

The Chromecast and other phones can connect to the iPhone 11.
The laptop and all other devices can connect to the local wifi(this WiFi won't be available later).
The laptop and all other devices can connect to my OnePlus 5 hotspot as well.
... but for some reason the laptop can't connect to the iPhone 11 hotspot.

How do I go about making the laptop connect to the iPhone? Seemingly every other combination works for both the laptop and iPhone, but they can't connect to each other.

The laptop gets hung up at checking network requirements and then fails.

Laptop model: Asus R417YA-GA044TS (Danish model I think)
Laptop WLAN card: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377
(I just updated the WLAN card driver to version 12.0.0.1257, but can't test yet as the iPhone is not here)

Could the iPhone be blocking the laptop specifically? I'll admit I'm not exactly a wizard at iPhones.

I'd appreciate all the help I can get.
