    Mobile hotspot won't connect to ipad

    I just got the Droid X, and the mobile hotspot will connect to a regular laptop, but not to my wifi only ipad. Anyone else tried this and had a problem? or does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it.

    more details: the ipad can "see" the wifi signal, but when I try to connect it says "cannot connect to the wireless network"

    It's not the iPads fault mobile hotspot won't connect

    I spent an hour on the phone and one in house with verizon. My iPad, iPhone, and MacBook won't connect. Periodically the iPad will for two minutes but then X boots me off. But my devices run great on verizons MiFi. There is something wrong with the X hotspot feature.

    Are you running the the latest upgrade (3.2.1) if not its not the droid. I had the same issue before I did the update. My X works for my ipad now, though not my mac.

    The issue is still considered unresolved on the apple support page, just checked.

    Thanks for the suggestion. When I get home from the office I'll check. Do you think it's odd that every other WiFi delivering device i.e. MiFi and residential wireless routers provide connectivity to the Apple devices? I really like the X and hope it can cohabit with my Apple devices.

    Same problem

    Just got the Droid X today. Lenovo laptop connects fine to Droid hotspot. iTouch gen 2 doesn't connect, iPad doesn't connect, iTouch gen 1 connects. I have tried all of the security options and none of them work. If I turn security off, the iPad will try to connect forever but won't finalize the connection. All of the devices can see the SSID/hotspot network.

    I had the same problem when I bought my Droid X at Best Buy and found the solution before the Geek Squad did. The iPod Touch and iPad do not like the WPA or WPA2 security settings. Try this:

    Open the 3G Mobile Hotspot App
    Click the first button on the bottom of the Droid and then select "Advance"
    Tap on WiFi AP Mode
    Change your security to WEP, create a password and then save

    This worked for me

    Use WEP for the network

    The iPad doesn't like the WPA or WPA2 for that matter. I know in the past, my iPad and other mobile devices would be picky. After the iPad update to 3.2.1 I was able to no security and WEP.

    Mobile Hotspot won't connect to iPhone

    I have a Droid X an iPhone (wife's), iTouch (version 2) and iPad.

    If the Droid X Mobile hotspot is set to WEP with 5 ASCII characters, the iPad will connect, the iTouch will connect but the iPhone just won't connect at all.

    Further, the iPad gets temper mental and will drop off half the time and just continue trying to connect. The iTouch seems to connect without problems even when the iPad won't connect.As mentioned in earlier posts, WEP is the only thing that seems to work some of the time. Don't bother with WPA or WPA2.
