It's possible that the frequency being broadcast by your Note3 just isn't compatible with your laptop. You should head over to your Hotspot settings and see if you can find what kind of wireless signature (a/b/g/n) is being broadcast, then see if your laptop's wireless card is compatible.

If it is, try connecting other devices to the network to verify that it is not your hotspot at fault. You might want to update the firmware for your laptop's wireless card, and restarting the PC wouldn't hurt, either.

Samsung Galaxy TAB A used as a hotspot problem?

Samsung Galaxy TAB A used as a hotspot. My PC connects to hotspot fine, but then after a couple of minutes, it drops out (default gateway not available. If I reset WiFi adapter in PC it works again but only for a couple of minutes?). Seems to be the Samsung hotspot issue as I can get a good connection using my phone as a hotspot)!
