can't wifi tether to android tablet

I have the wifi app on my tp2 works great but my android tablet will not pick up signal, I understand my wifi app is adhoc and android does not recognize adhoc. Is there a wifi tethering app for tp2 that's work for android? Thanks

you either need to boot into android and use the android tethering or you need to change files in your tablet to enable adhoc support .

Yep, OP you would have to root your Android Tablet and replace the wpa_supplicant file with the appropriate one that supports adhoc.

I read that method, seems more work than I wanted to do, I was hoping there was a wifi app that was an access point not adhoc. Thanks for your reply.

Re: can't wifi tether to android tablet

wmwifirouter works without changing anything... it creates wifi as a "real" wifi and not ad hoc at least for me :S I was able to connect my laptop/ipad/evo to my tp2

not sure if android tablet is "different" than ipad/evo though but I don't got anythign else as a tablet to test lol but the app isn't free

it creates an adhoc for me , its even listed in the settings as adhoc , you can change it but im not sure how to make it work .

EDIT: I found this website , you can make it an access point , however you MUST have a wireless router to make it work . http://support.wmwifirouter.com/knowledge/KB0806019/

Re: can't wifi tether to android tablet

I had the same problem, but you need to run updates on your tablet. The most recent update will allow you to connect without any problem!

Hope it works!
Cheers !!!

Its been mentioned before actually..just a lot less recently due to it being cheaper to use the Android port.
