HTC WiFi Router

HTC are like one big leaky sieve these days and whilst the morality and legality of said leaks is always a slightly grey area, it's always nice to see what we can expect to see in future ROM updates and devices.

One such leak set out to enhance functionality on our beloved devices, is HTC's very own WiFi router app! This is one of those things, like USB mass storage mode, that should always have been in Windows Mobile but even though MS saw fit to let you use your phone as a modem via Bluetooth and USB, using your phone as a WiFi access point either involved a bit of hacking (in the old days) or more recently, by using something like the incredibly overpriced WMWiFiRouter ($29.99!).

Anyway, just like with USB mass storage mode, HTC has (eventually) come to the rescue with a very simple and easy to use app. Just had a little play on my HD and my laptop was seeing speeds of around 130KB/s with 2 bars of HSDPA (O2), which ain't bad at all! My only issue with this app is the lack of decent encryption - WEP can be cracked in a matter of seconds these days!

Just tried this out on my Orange Touch HD (non-Orange ROM!)

It insisted on trying to use "Orange WAP" connection instead of "Orange Internet" - which is a shame because I sometimes get charged for using Orange WAP despite having a data bundle!

[sorted!] I needed to change the connection name in the connection wizard!

Hi, My Touch HD also wants to use "Orange WAP". Could you please detail the steps you took to change this?

Thanks

Still can't get it to connect using anything other than "Orange WAP". This really doesn't make sense, as in the settings it says to use "Orange Internet" by default. Help? :)

I have since removed it - and I can't remember exactly what I had to do now!

Something like Start/Settings/Connections/Connections/Advanced/Select Networks

Then change both drop-downs to "Orange Internet" - then "OK" out of it

AFter I gave up on this - I uninstalled it.

Now - after that my WiFi refused to connect to anything at all and I ended up having to hard-reset and start from scratch again.

So be careful!
