    Nokia N8 not recognized in Windows 8.1

    I am using Nokia N8 running with the JoikuSpot Premium that was working flawlessly on Windows 7 operating system. But now I have installed Windows 8.1 with the latest update and it is not recognizing my Nokia N8 phone? Because of this problem I am not able to use my phone as a modem. There is no problems with my Nokia N8 phone but still the computer with Windows 8.1 is not able to see it? Does anyone have any solution for this problem? Thank you

    Have you made sure that the computer is able to recognize any other Wifi connections at all? If it is not then you will have to run the Windows Network diagnostics to check. You can do this by simply right clicking on the network icon in the task and choose Troubleshoot problems. After that simply follow the instructions given on your screen and check if the troubleshooter resolves the problem or not.

    In your Nokia N8 smartphone, go to WiFi settings, scan the WiFi networks, discover your JoikuSpot internet WiFi network and click “Connect”. Your iPod is connected. Next open your Safari browser and start surfing or use any internet services available in your device through the JoikuSpot Internet access. Similar connection as in this iPod example applies to iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. If the problem still persists then you can try to contact the JoikuSpot support from this link -

    You can follow the below method for connecting. After that copy and paste the "netsh wlan connect JoikuSpot_XXXXXXXXXYYY" replacing the exact SSID of your connection in a blank notepad file and save it as SSID.bat file in your desktop. After that run it as administrator when ever you want to connect:

    @echo off
    :: BatchGotAdmin (Run as Admin code starts)
    REM --> Check for permissions
    >nul 2>&1 "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system"
    REM --> If error flag set, we do not have admin.
    if '%errorlevel%' NEQ '0' (
    echo Requesting administrative privileges...
    goto UACPrompt
    ) else ( goto gotAdmin )
    echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    echo UAC.ShellExecute "%~s0", "", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    exit /B
    if exist "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ( del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" )
    pushd "%CD%"
    CD /D "%~dp0"
    :: BatchGotAdmin (Run as Admin code ends)
    :: Your codes should start from the following line
    netsh wlan connect JoikuSpot_XXXXXXXXXYYY
