Motorola Droid X :: "Tethering _ Portable Hotspot" Under "wireless / Networks"

Sep 22, 2010

I don't see any "Tethering & portable hotspot" under "wireless & networks" settings as instructed in the Froyo manual. So Verizon has it blocked? Still have to root to do it, I suppose?

HTC Incredible :: Wifi Hotspot Vs Wireless Tethering

Sep 19, 2010

I recently rooted my Incredible and installed Cyanogen 6.00 RC3. I liked some things about it but missed some of the stock HTC widgets and apps. The Cyanogen rom had wifi hot spot, and it worked great. I could connect more than one computer to it, as it acted like a Hotspot.

Today i reflashed to Virtuous 2.7 Rom, which is alot like the stock 2.2. I got back the things I missed in Cyanogen but no wifi hotspot. Instead, there is "Wireless Tethering" which doesn't seem to work. The latest version is installed, version 2.0.5-pre9. Neither of my computers can "see" the connection.

Is there any way I can get the wifi hot spot app that was in Cyanogen and install it on my phone with the Virtuous 2.7 Rom? wireless tethering really doesn't do what I want it to.

Motorola Droid :: Wifi Tether - Wireless Networks

Mar 23, 2010

I just installed the wifi tether. i opened the app up, changed my ssid, and pasephrase. I then went to my laptop to search for wireless networks and I can't find my droid. What could I have done wrong. also...i thought maybe I had to turn on wifi in the phone settings. when I went to turn on, it said it was unable to turn on wifi. I went back to the tether and turned it off but the phone settings still could not turn on wifi.

Motorola Droid :: Wireless Tether - Mobile Hotspot

Sep 9, 2010

I feel like I have done enough reading on knowing how to preform the root on my phone, but I am just curious as to how I get different features like wireless tether, or any tether for that matter, without having to download easytether or PDAnet. Is hot spot even available on our phones?

Do custom kernels have these features built in? If so, what is a good kernel to use with OMJ's post on rooting the droid without RSDlite?

I really just want my phone to act like it acts and look like it looks now, just have additional features and maybe overclock it a bit.

Motorola Droid :: Wireless Hotspot On Froyo W/o Custom Rom

Aug 7, 2010

I have a Droid running the recent Froyo update. I'm wondering if there is a way to root my phone and do something (install an app?) that will allow me to use the phone as a wifi hotspot without installing a custom rom? I'm not a super adventurous user (mostly concerned about speed/stability); I would just like to utilize this feature if possible.

If it isn't possible to do this without installing a custom rom, is there a rom available that makes minimal changes to the standard OS just to enable a few missing features like tethering and wifi hotspot?

Motorola Droid X :: Advantage To Using Hacked 3G Hotspot Vs Wireless Tether

Nov 9, 2010

What are the differences and/or advantages to using Wireless Tether vs. "hacked" 3G Hotspot, which I've been seeing people talk about recently? I was under the impression that Wireless Tether is a free option for wireless hotspot capability - is using the hacked 3G hotspot less detectible or something?

Motorola Droid :: Prior To Root - Backing Up Wireless Hotspot Data

Apr 23, 2010

I am getting ready to "try" to root my phone and the one bit of info that I would like to save is all the wireless hotspot locations/passwords I have collected. What is the best way to do this?

I am also wondering, I have read several threads on people rooting their phone back one version to the 2.05 I think it was. Why would you do that? I thought I read there is a 2.1 working root correct?

Aug 10, 2010

Under settings > location & security settings, there's 3 check boxes for location...1) Use wireless networks, 2) use gps satellites, and 3) "enable assisted gps".Does anyone know what 3) is or does? Is it something to make gps more accurate? I usually run with 1 and 2 enabled. Turned 3 on today and saw a noticeable battery drain but couldn't see what it actually does.

General :: HTC Inspire 4G - Portable WiFi Hotspot Turns Off Automatically?

Apr 1, 2011

After reading a great post in the forum I setup my HTC Inspire 4G phone to works great! I followed the same steps on my fiancee's Inspire 4G and it didn't work so well. When I click the Portable Wi-Fi hotspot box in Settings > Wireless & Networks it turns on the Wi-Fi...and it is detectable by other devices...but then it immediately and automatically turns off.

We have the same phone purchased on the same day and I used the same Access Point Name settings as detailed in the excellent Android Forum thread. I even deleted and re-created the Access Point to make sure I didn't mistype anything but the same Portable Wi-Fi turns on then immediately turns off problem exists.

General :: USB Tethering Creates Endless New Windows Networks

Sep 18, 2012

Whenever I tether my laptop via the USB cable it takes a long time for the laptop to connect and when it does, it says "Connected to Network X", where X is a number. Everytime I reconnect via USB X increases by 1 so the last time I did it I was on Network 43!!!!! I accept that this could be in part a windows thing and not a GS3 thing BUT when I connect via a Wifi Hotspot it connects really really quickly and always says I am connected to AndroidAP. Its as if the USB tethering firmware is

Therefore connecting via hotspot seems much more stable and smooth however I was under the impression that the laptop internet speed will be quicker using USB tether rather than wifi and as I primarilly use my SGS3 as my home broadband connection I want to try and configure it to get the fastest speed on my laptop as possible. If I do an internet speed check on my SGS3 while my laptop is tethered the phone connection is always faster than the doing the same on the laptop. I guess this should be perhaps expected but as much as 4Mbits/s. I.e My phone was getting speeds of 6Mbits/sec but without having any apps open on the phone, my laptop would only get 2Mbits/s?

Android :: Scanner For Wireless Networks Periodically

May 26, 2010

I'm developing sort of a wireless scanner, so I need to scan every X seconds. I know I should use WifiManager and startScan() to get the networks and then register a receiver to receive the event once the scan has finished. However I'm having problems when trying to figure out how to scan periodically. It's more like a design problem. My solution so far has been to create a Service which takes care of the scanning, besides the main Activity.

I think this is correct. So, how could I tell this Service to scan every X seconds? I've thought it may have a Thread object, call its Scan method during tart_services() and then take it to sleep. Also I thought I could just get rid of the Service and run the Thread from the main Activity, but then I guess it would die whenever the Activity is not visible. None of then seem like a really good solution to me, and I think there must be an easier way to do this.

HTC Droid Eris :: Setting Up Desktop Computer For Wireless Tethering

Aug 23, 2010

I know that this is sort of stupid thing not to know, but how do you actually set up the link between the Eris and the desktop when using Wireless Tether? I went through the Wireless network Setup and I even went through Network Setup Wizard and Network Connections and still haven't been able to figure out how to actually initiate wireless tetherthing through wi-fi. I'm sure that it's something bonehead that I haven't considered. The only time I've set up networks is with the help of ISP tech support or the ISP setup CD.

HTC EVO 4G :: Tethering / Hotspot For EVO

Jun 24, 2010

I know Sprint's hotspot feature is to use the EVO "Wirelessly" with up to 8 diff. devices and that is what the $30 charge is for if you want to use that feature.It's my understanding that "Tethering" is a different thing where u directly connect your EVO to a laptop and use the "Internet Sharing" mode that way with only that device. I don't pay the extra $30 so i dont have hotspot for my EVO but I am able to Tether my phone to my laptop. Ive read that tethering is not allowed on the sprint network without purchasing the Hotspot feature and i can have my contract terminated if i continue to use tethering with my EVO. IS THAT TRUE? Is the tethering feature with the EVO at this point, just a feature that has not been disabled or patched yet or is it infact supported by sprint without needing to buy the Sprint Hotspot feature?????? And if it is freely available is there a cap to how much data i can use while tethering? cause you know, i do pay the damn """ $10 premium charge""" for each EVO on my account..

Jelly Bean MR1 - Wireless And Networks Options Not Appearing?

Jan 17, 2013

I am porting a WiFi driver to ANDROID JB-MR1 using a proprietary tarball for a MIPS based platform. When I build and load ANDROID binaries, everything is fine -- except that, I am unable to see Wireless & Networks options on the Settings screen. All the 3 options related to Wireless & Network settings (to enable WiFi, Bluetooth and Data usage) have disappeared from the settings page. However all other items in the page are in tact.

* I am able to build, load the WiFi driver, launch wpa_supplicant and even scan for Routers using command line (wpa_cli).

* I think I have all the changes needed in hardware/libhardware_legacy/wifi/wifi.c

* My frameworks/base/packages/SystemUI/AndroidManifest.xml file has the entry:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE " />

General :: How To Create Shortcut To Wireless Networks Settings

Feb 28, 2014

When I had Android 2.3.3 I could create system shortcuts to various software functions, not just apps. I could one-touch navigate to various settings in Device Settings, I could do other things, in particular navigate to Wireless Networks quickly to choose network fast.

With Android 4.2, I can't do that it seems and I am left with upper drop-down menu. Any way around that to make my access to Wireless Networks settings faster? Even, better it would be to have access to various system settings as described above.
