Please help with tethering with android tablet

I have a sprint tp2 with stock wm6.5 rom

I am happy with it without a different rom, but want to get help on tethering with bluetooth onto an archos 101 android 2.2 tablet.


I have heard it is easier with custom rom like energy, but can anyone tell me what mods are in those rom that makes it possible so i can do it manually without installing custom rom?

I also have problems with tethering with wmwifirouter using wifi with this android tablet, for some reason it doesn't detect the wmwifirouter network. I can tether fine with wifi to my laptop.

Re: Please help with tethering with android tablet

Re: Please help with tethering with android tablet

for ANdroid to see Ad-Hoc, you need to change the wpa_supplicant file in System/bin using Root EXPLORER or Android Mate....

ive done this mod to my TP running Android, but i dont know if the same one works for Tablets... ill attach it, heres what to do..

. goto System/bin and backup your orginal wpa_supplicant file somewhere
. copy/paste the New wpa_supplicant file into System/bin
. reset Android
. turn on Wifi Router, WmWifiRouter, or the like
. Turn on wifi on Android and scan for networks
. Ad-hoc should now be visible
. enjoy

**note** wpa_supplicant is just a file.. no extension

File Type: rar wpa_supplicant.rar (120.2 KB, 72 views) Click for barcode!

Re: Please help with tethering with android tablet

wil this solves both tethering with wifi and bluetooth? I think i read somewhere about tp2 having a widcomm bluetooth stack instead of what is in tp1. is this changeable?

edit: didn't work for me, the archos 101 was not able to see the the ad hoc network

Re: Please help with tethering with android tablet

I was able to get bluetooth tethering to work between a Sprint TP2 (stock) and an Archos 5 Android. Not sure if it's different on the Archos 101, but I used Enable Bluetooth DUN on Sprint Touch Pro2! on the TP2, then set up the tether from the Android setting screen, and it works fine.

How do you setup tether from the Android setting screen? I don't see settings from the setting screen about tethering to the phone.
Thanks.

Re: Please help with tethering with android tablet

Hi. Not sure if this will help but I have been tethering my coby 7024 successfully using both the FRX06 and the Gingerbread from the Android section of the TP2 forum. In the settings, wifi, there is option for tether. It is infrastructure mode so can be recognized by the Android tablet. Good luck.
