    Wireless tether, but Infrastructure mode

    I honestly havent a clue where this should go, so here it is.

    I recently recieved the cr-48 notebook from google, and i tried tethering it to my droid with Wireless tether for root users.

    However, it will not connect. It will say its "associating with wifi tether"

    But then it will just time out and not connect. I have come to understand that this is because wireless tether broadcasts in ad-hoc mode, which the notebook does not support. It requires an infrastructure based network.

    Does anyone have a patch for wireless tether/ alternative that allows you to broadcast in infrastructure mode?

    I believe the lack of infrastructure mode is a limitation of the wifi chipset in the Droid 1. That is also the reason why the Droid 1 lacks a Wireless Hotspot app from VZW. Remember when they announced that the D1 wouldn't get this because the hardware doesn't support it? This is what they were referring to.

    I know it is not as glamorous, but I use the wired tether app on my Droid with my CR-48, no problem. LAN over usb works just fine!

    on your cr-48, disble 3g and enable wifi.

    then connect your usb cable from your android device to your cr-48.

    on your android device select and turn on the wired.tether app.
    *NOTE* make sure wifi and wireless tether or any other usb/wifi apps are disabled on your android device.

    you should now have a usb-ethernet connection establiished.

    if not.....your SOL

    You could also try to use wireless tether for root, and connect through bluetooth. That is of course if your laptop has bluetooth.

    the Cr-48 has a Atheros AR5BBU12 Bluetooth V2.1 EDR

    1] in order to use it the unit needs to be switched to Dev Mode & Rooted

    2] after completing the steps on step 1....open a terminal by hitting CTRL+ALT+T.

    3] Open up a bash shell. Just type “shell” in the terminal.

    4] You’ll need to put your Bluetooth device into discovery mode. If you don’t know how to do this with your device you’ll need to consult a manual or Google it.

    5] Type “hcitool scan” to have the Cr-48 scan for Bluetooth devices. You should see device(s) with their addresses listed.

    6] Type in the command “hcitool cc xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx” to connect the device, using its address.

    7] Depending on your configuration, you may need a key. You can enter this by using ”hcitool auth xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx”.

    While these are the steps to complete the process, the chances if this working to obtain interet access or even connect bt devices is very very very slim.

    goodluck
