Re: Internet connection sharing over wifi .

I still use WMWiFi Router, but the device you will be connecting to needs to support AdHoc connections. (My HP Touchpad does not natively support an AdHoc connection)
Have you gotten your carrier set up and able to access the internet properly on your Fathom? If so, just make sure you've got WMWiFiRouter installed and run through the initial configuration settings.
Does it ever get to the "Enabled" screen showing you status of the connection? If it doesn't, there might be a problem somewhere in your network config, or in WmWiFiRouter not liking GSM.
I'll do some looking into this as well, but I only have a datablock SIM to test on GSM, so I can't test actual internet sharing.

Re: Internet connection sharing over wifi .

Hey pizza boy thanxx for the reply. I guess the problem is Adhoc connection . I have a palm pixi plus , blackberry playbook, motorola milestone (android) and no device recognise the adhoc network. Is there any other workaround for this issue ...??

Ps. I can create a wifi hotspot using palm pixi ...it just work with all my device even with my bro's iPad.

Re: Internet connection sharing over wifi .

The only solution that I can think of is to see if there's any community patch or program to connect to an AdHoc connection. I know there's one for the HP TouchPad, so there might be one for older WebOS devices as well.
Not sure about Android, but it should be able to with a patch or program (possibly rooted) and the Playbook... no idea.

Re: Internet connection sharing over wifi .

Hey bro thanx for your reply, but i have a question is there any way to patch fathom . I mean any other software. Coz it difficult to patch each device i m connecting to an adhoc connection . I mean if a palm pixi (webos) could do it why cant LG FATHOM (Wm 6.5.3).

Re: Internet connection sharing over wifi .

I can see what I can find, but there aren't many programs that work with Windows Mobile anymore. It might be possible to patch the LG hotspot tool to work on GSM as well as CDMA. I can look into that too.

Re: Internet connection sharing over wifi .

When running the LG one, does it error out saying it can't run on GSM or does it just not work?
