Hi all

 

Am I correct in thinking that I need to (somehow) modify the wpa_supplicant file to allow the hudl to see ad-hoc networks?

 

I am about to start playing with ubuntu and rkkitchen to see if I can unpack the ROM.... Very much unknown territory!!

 

 

Thanks

Daz

Nope.

 

The ad-hoc I want to connect to is not a PC based one.

am i right im guessing you want to join a wifi hotspot from an apple iphone ?

 

I have a 3GS which will broadcast wifi on hotspot but for the life of me I cant get the hudl to see the network broadcast...laptop, net book etc see it fine ??

No. I have a telescope that has the ability to be controlled by a app on the Hudl.

I tap an object and the telescope moves to the right part of the sky.

 

The gadget that connects to the telescope produces an ad-hoc network, and this is what I need to connect to.

OK, while I appreciate it's become a cliche, but is there an app for this? I tried the store with "ad hoc connection" and got a few interesting results with no need to alter the WiFi supplicant - although you may need to be rooted ;-)
Any chance your device could use Bluetooth?
