Why I can't connect my laptop to my phone's wireless portable hotspot?

Hi! I am using windows 10 and have Huawei P8 phone. I want to use the mobile data on my laptop, so I have switched on the tathering & portable hotspot on the phone. Yet when I attempt to connect I get the message that: "can't connect to this network", even though I am writing the password correct. 

My previous phone was samsung galaxy s4 and on it connecting different devices worked just fine.

Are there some settings on the laptop that maybe I should readjust?

    Why do you enable tethering AND hotspot?  They are different, one uses as a modem and the other a Mifi router.  Is that in the manual?
