I've been streaming Pandora for hours via unsecured wifi. Not a single drop. Most I made it before was 10 mins on WPA2. Looks like that did it.
I can't get connected anymore. Had it working great then upgraded to BB 1.1. I am sure it is coincidental. How the heck do I get this to work. I go to advance on my laptop and switch to ad-hoc (peer to peer). I have tried both secure and unsecure. Someone please walk me through what you do.
On my Droid I found that turning down some of the WiFi power management stuff made it work a lot better. I posted about this over on the Motorola support forums thread that was mentioned earlier https://supportforums.motorola.com/m.../159656#159656 .
What do you suggest changing the autopowermode setting to so it will activated when I ask it to? The range is 2 -30,000 and it defaults to 15. It did finally kick in out of no where last night. All of a sudden I heard the phone vibrate to let me know it was connected. Like I said the phone says it is tethering but the upload and download rates stay at 0.0 for both. WHen I look at the feeds on my laptop for that wireless network it shows the packets changing. Am I on the right trail to fix my wifi trouble?
In tiwlan.ini I changed:
AutoPowerModeDozeMode = 2 Was 3 This is which of the 2 doze modes it uses
AutoPowerModeActiveTh = 8 Was 15 This is how much traffic it takes to come out of doze
AutoPowerModeDozeTh = 4 Was 8 This is how little traffic it takes to go back to doze
As an experiment you could set dot11PowerMode = 1 (from 0) instead which would turn off the power management altogether but that would probably impact your battery more than what I've done.
