Question Tether Treo Pro to iPod Touch

I am trying to tether my Treo Pro to my iPod via Wifi. I've installed WiFiRouter, and it looks like it should work fine, but the problem is the ForceCellConnection reg key. At least I think thats the issue. I cannot delete the key, nor edit it where it saves. I edit it or delete it and hit refresh and it reappears.
I've tried a BlueTooth connection, but my iPod won't find the Treo. The iPod will find the WiFiRouter wireless network, but when I connect, I don't have internet.
Any thoughts?

I do realize that I should just get an iPhone, but I can't afford one now since the plan is about $120 more per month than what I pay with Sprint.

Thanks in advance!

go to start/fileexplorer/windows/startup and delete HTC_CM_Gaurdian then go on with the reg edits.

Re: Tether Treo Pro to iPod Touch

That worked great to delete that reg file, thanks!
I retried the WiFiRouter program and it still doens't connect. The WiFi signal says it good, then when I connect to it, it goes from 3 bars to 1 and I get no internet.
I guess it wasn't the ForceCellConnection reg key that was blocking it. Any idea what else might be keeping it from connecting?

Re: Tether Treo Pro to iPod Touch

no i use it on my computer what type of connection are you using? i know i tried to use it with my wii and it found it but would not connect. make sure the ipod can connect ad-hoc


Edit: found that it is possible to do what your doing but unless you can make a static ip in wifirouter the touch will not connect if you need a wireless connection and have a laptop with wifi capabilities try tethering wifirouter with your laptop and then on you laptop

set up an ad hoc network and connect to it.... you won't be able to browse yet....

then start>run and type nslookup

type that number into the dns of the ipod...

voila! you should be connected

Re: Tether Treo Pro to iPod Touch

I was trying to use the WiFi connection for ease.
I also tried the bluetooth connection. When I pair the iPod to the Treo the Treo sees it, but the iPod won't recognize my Treo (grrrr).
I have the WiFiRouter set to AdHoc. It's also set to Dymanic, WEP/Open, Index 1

Re: Tether Treo Pro to iPod Touch

FFS. I just changed the WEP/Open to None and it worked. There must have been some issue with the WEP key or some crap.

Re: Tether Treo Pro to iPod Touch

No clue why the WEP option won't work. The passwords are the same, it seems to connect, but I get the IP & Subnet to populate, but the Router, DNS, Search Domains, & Clinet ID don't. hmmmm.
lol, good luck with the wii
