Bluetooth is turned off. Still getting that same error message.
Are you near an apple store? A visit there might be in order.

Note: If you see an "Unable to Join" or timeout error when trying to connect a device using Wi-Fi, ensure that you remain on the Personal Hotspot screen until the first device connects. After a device has connected, you can leave the Personal Hotspot screen and use your phone normally. Your device will automatically stop broadcasting using Wi-Fi if you put your device to sleep or after 90 seconds elapse with no devices connected using Wi-Fi. You can start broadcasting your Wi-Fi network again by tapping Settings > Personal Hotspot.
This is the same if you use another phone (not iPhone) as hotspot. After 90 seconds you won't get a connection.
If this doesn't work, you should do as MoonlitSonata suggested.

I am going to move this to the Help Section at this time for better attention.

I had to go and manually enter the settings info. See if you can look at another ipad device and enter the same settings in ip address fields
