Problems when setting up instant hotspot

macOS & Mac Apps

Hi! Till now I'm not successful to set up and use the instant hotspot. Firmware on my devices (iphone 5 and macbook air 2013) are up to date. I followed as far as I can say the instruction but when searching for the installed hotspot the macbook doesn't find my iphone. Anybody here who has problems too when using the instant hotspot? I expected an easy use (e.g. a quick automatic connection) but reality shows something else. Maybe it's my fault. Would be nice to get an instruction step by step or a link to an instruction you have successfully used. Thanks a lot. Greetings from Cologne, Germany.
