I cannot get tether to work despite following the manual. My computer says "network cable unplugged" next to the Tether Network Connection, and I do not see the adhoc tether network as an option to choose on my iPhone. My phone is connected to the laptop via the lightning USB cable. Can you please advise? Thank you.
