Wi-Fi Router Help Please

Hey Guys, if there is anyone out there that might be able to help me? I have a touch pro 2 and have rtied running numerous roms. Mightys, Leads, Vins. My problem is when I turn on wifi router my laptop picks up perfectly but if I turn on my touch pro2 or my evo that has no service it wont detect my pro2 wifi router. Yes I did turn the wifi on the pro2, evo and my wifes nook with no luck. Is there an ssid number on my pro2 that I can manually enter in these other devices? Or am I missing something? Like I said my laptop picks up perfectly but the other devices dont. Thanks for your help. T M Z

Re: Wi-Fi Router Help Please

I hope I read it right, but if you're trying to use the tp2 router and it doesn't have service, it won't work. You have to have service on it, I hope I read it right .

You're confused Dr.

Hey Tony!
Have you tried different versions of the WiFi app?
That's strange that none of the other devices will connect.
Maybe try using the shipped 6.1 rom?

Re: Wi-Fi Router Help Please

Hey guys. Thanks for the replies. Dr. 8820 I do have service on the Touch Pro 2 that I am trying to send the WiFi signal out. It's the other device that does not have service, and I'm turning on those devices.

Horndoctor, by any chance do you have a link to the most current WiFi app? And to your 6.1 remark, I can'r leave 6.5 now... I've gotten too use to it. But thanks foryour suggestion.

And thanks for the 2 of you replying.

Re: Wi-Fi Router Help Please

Ok here is whats going on...when using the router app on your TP2 in winmo...it will make an Ad-Hoc network...most Android phones/devices(like Evo and Nook) do not support Ad-Hoc networks as is..

You gotta install a modified WPA_Supplicant on your android devices so they can see Ad-Hoc networks.

This one works on Galaxy S devices...but I can't guarantee that it will work on the evo..make a backup of the wpa_supplicant and your rom before trying...

(There are multiple versions and some work on some devices and not others)

Re: Wi-Fi Router Help Please

You should be able to find a modified wpa_supplicant that enables WiFi Ad-Hoc network connections on your EVO over at xda. That said, I'd recommend that you verify the specific version of wpa_supplicant on your EVO first. Then you can locate and test the correct modified version to see if it works. The terminal command is "wpa_supplicant -v" without the quotes. With Desire HD or Z builds on the HD2, I had the v0.6.10 version, and needed to download and test a few before finally finding one that worked as intended.

To install it on the HD2, I just make sure wifi is turned off, and use Root Explorer to copy the original wpa_supplicant in /system/bin to somewhere safe on storage card. Then copy the modified version to /system/bin, fast reboot, and test away. In your case, I'm guessing you'll need to find one signed and update it through recovery.

If it helps at all, here's a link for the one that works on the latest Desire HD and Z builds:

[MISC] Enable Adhoc Networks - xda-developers

Best to all,
R
