Hello, a quick fix for MoDaCos 1.3 patch if you can't get wifi working:
It's not actually the wifi that doesnt work its getting an IP from DHCP...
If you assign a static IP to your Hero it will connect just fine.
So, from your LAN connected computer open a command prompt
(in Windows XP/2000/Vista/Seven hit windows key + r and type cmd)
Now type ipconfig
You should get...
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::2537:f86e:d816:589c%11
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.101
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
Or something similar...
Now on your Hero go to
Settings -> Wireless Controls -> Wi-Fi settings
Hit the menu key and then Advanced
Scroll down to IP settings and tick the "Use static IP" box.
Enter IP adress...
In my case as my PC's IP address is 192.168.1.101 I must use the range 192.168.1.* so enter a random number to replace * ie:
Now set the gateway IP to whatever your "default gateway" appears in your command prompt. In my case 192.168.1.1
Now set Netmask to the same as the "subnet mask" in the command prompt,
in my case: 255.255.255.0
Now with DNS 1 and DNS 2 you have 2 options:
1) Use your routers DHCP settings (not sure if this works I haven't tried)
so set the DNS server to the same IP as the gateway (in my case 192.168.1.1)
2) KNOWN TO WORK! Set the DNS servers to a company like opendns.com:
Et Voila....You now have working wifi!
