I manually entered the SSID on my laptop, windows 8.1. But when it tries to connect, again it shows the message "the network is taking longer than usual" and connects with no internet access and the wifi bars on my laptop get that little yellow warning sign overlay. @russellvone

Oh well. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to attempt to help me with this. I'll go with the usb tethering then, and hope it works out, unless i have a cursed device or something lol. @russellvone

clockworkmod tether....

it's flawless when I use it

no matter what OS I'm tethering to ubuntu/Windowsxp/7/8/8.1

it's simple to install, then just plug in and surf away

side note: you won't be able to get it from the playstore, boost blocked it so just search in your browser for it
