Wifi tethering without adhoc support

I have a nextbook tablet that won't let you change the WPA_supplicant even after rooting to support adhoc.

If your tablet wont support adhoc or you don't want to root your unit, this may work for you too. Here is what you do, all credit to the app makers.

On your tablet, go to the market and download "PDANet" for tablets and install.

On your phone, go to the market and download "Foxfi" and install.

Open both programs, follow instructions and your good to go. I shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

LIMITATIONS:
Foxfi only works with Android and Blackberry phones, no windows mobile.

Foxfi's website says it does not work with HTC android phones, but it appears it may work if your phone is rooted.

Happy tethering

Update: It appears that, at least for me, my tablet can find wifi without PDANet on my tablet, just FoxFi on my phone.

FoxFi is infrastructure. That is why tablets like the Kindle will see and connect to it.

Got tapatalk working right finally.

I am an Android noob, so I bow to your knowledge.

Even through adhoc is now working on my tablet, foxfi seems to give me the best speed (and security).

One good thing about it is if you don't want or can't root there's an option, if you phone supports foxfi.

My wife could give a hoot about root (doesn't want to ruin warranty). Her big thing is cutesy, ootsyfoo launchers, (everytime I hear "O hun look at this" I think just shoot me). The point is she can still tether her NetBook without root using foxfi.

Well at least I know it's helped 2 people
