Virgin OV 2.2.2 WiFi hotspot tethering
OK its been many days of playing, even installing XP on an old laptop as XP is all wireless ready. [PC is windows 2000 pro] yea yea yea but I like it.
Anyways, after lots of programs. I ended up with PDAnet and was able to get USB tethering to work.
tried to activate hotspot a few time with PDAnet with no luck.
then about the 5th try PDAnet said I needed to goto the market and get FoxFi to be able to tether, so I downloaded it and walla I have WiFi hotspot working on the XP laptop, then it took about 5 mins to get it working on the Win2kpro PC. Which I am using right now. [web pages never loaded so fast]
Now I am enjoying this to much to go back and start all over.
but I wonder if you even need PDAnet as all it does it auto launch FoxFi for you, which would make PDAnet not neeed unless you wanted to USB or BlueTooth tether.
[I am well aware on the TOS rules to tethering but I will not be doing anything different then I do on my OV now, I can just have a bigger screen, keyboard and mouse to use. As we only got dial up out here, so I heavily use the OV for everything by default.]
