Joikuspot (free) and Android Devices

Hello,

 

I want to get a tablet.  Thinking of Android...but  I tried to use my N8 with Joikuspot free at an electronics store with a bunch of tablets. All worked except for Android devices, Ipads and some other no name brands with proprietary OS tablets found it and it worked.  All laptops also found it.  But no Android tablets or phones in the area detected it.

 

One Android device foun it (Jellybean) but would not connect.

 

I read that Android does not support Ad Hoc connections which Joikuspot provides.

 

I tried some Android forums, but they either had a Bluetooth solution (too slow) or they said try the Nokia forums.

 

Besides Joikuspot - any other Wifi hotspot apps?  Would Joiku Spot full work - anyone have it and try it with and Android device?

 

Anyone have suggestions?

 

Thanks,

 

V

Joikuspot is adhoc only regardless of version. I woud strongly recommend getting the paid version if are are planning on using it in public places. I remember using the free Lite version in a shopping centre once and had multiple unknown devices connected within seconds. 

 

I am not aware of any other tethering solutions for symbian.

It does seem to be possible to make android work with ad-hoc wifi. Search for "android ad-hoc wifi" - but it does seem to carry quite a highrisk of causing problems. I could try it out on my tablet, but it is unstable enough as it is so I don't want to risk making it even worse.

I wish it was possible to install Symbian onto my android tablet, but failing that I think I will soon be jumping ship to apple - influenced somewhat by the idea of a display that will do the 808 pictures justice.

Thanks!

 

If I can get it to work (hacking my tablet as it is a Android thing), I definitely will!

There is a lot of info on tablet hacking. It actually reflects bad on Android. I think the N9 has an infrastructure hotspot. And then of course there is the Lumia 920 - which I am seriously considering....if it ever comes to Canada.

You need to set the same IP gateway address in tablets as it says in JoikuSpot settings in phones. and it will work
