Normally when a PC cannot connect to a Jetpack it is because there is a password conflict saved to that machine.  Its normally best to go through your saved Wireless Profiles and wipe out anything that may be in there related to this new Jetpack and start fresh.

Once you confirm that the password and profile have been entered correctly the next test is to temporarily remove security on your Jetpack and test connecting without a password.  This will help you isolate if the Jetpack is able to connect to the PC at all or not.  If an open connection works then you know its simply a security conflict.  If an open connection does not work then there is a hardware problem on either the PC or the Jetpack that needs to get corrected.
