You would think that this would be seamless. I'm downloading from a file sharing site like Rapidgator, the type of download that doesn't support resuming. I'll be 3/4 done with my download and I need to leave the wifi hotspot, so I figure I'll just turn on my phone's own wifi hotspot and tether to complete the download. Nope, the download breaks as soon as I try to switch wifi connections.
Okay. I need a free app to turn my phone into a wifi hotspot. Sounds easy?? My Vibrant is running Android 2.1 so I don't have Google play, and my phone doesn't actually work through a company. I just use it on a wifi signal. My phone reaches the community wifi but my laptop doesn't! :/
I'm asking why one of my S4's recognizes my Wifi & gets to the WEP key popup and my other S4 doesn't? The second phone lists the Wifi however just hangs, then never connects. What gives? Carrier is t-mobile.
I am getting conflicting story's between Amazon and Boost Mobile over a Kyocera Hydro C5170. The phone is fine and new in the box. The issue is wether this cell phone is wifi hotspot capable and can act as a modem for my laptop via a usb cable when there is no regular wifi connection available. I asked Amazon for that specific feacher to be included in the phone search.
My wifi keeps dropping since last night, have the phone almost 2 years, never any wifi issues, restarted router, restarted phone, unchecked and checked use maximum wifi, all other phones and laptop working fine on wifi.. when I have the phone beside the router it has full signal, as soon as i step away it starts dropping until its gone..
