    guys,

    the touchpad only supports infrastructure mode.

    quote, straight from MiWi's website:

    Infrastructure mode only works on the iPhone 4 running iOS 4.2.6+ (Verizon iphone or gsm 4.3+). The limitation is due to the Broadcom firmware running on the iPhone 4 vs. Other ISO firmwares/devices (in other words, requires an update from Apple to work on other devices)

    I think that quote right there speaks for itself.

    I have iphone 4 running 4.3.3 and use MiWi on the reg with my touchpad.

    I just used Open Garden app on my Droid2 (CM7) tethered to the TP, and it worked great. Browsed without issue, very nice.

    I think they're talking more of connecting with an Iphone. Yeah, my Mytouch 4G works flawlessly with the Touchpad for WIFI tethering too.

    I wrote a little script that you can use to connect to an unencrypted adhoc AP by disabling WiFi and then typing in xterm (example ssid is n900adhoc) :

    Code:
    ./tp-adhoc n900adhoc
    You have to unzip the script first, and you replace n900adhoc with your own network name. Seems to work for me for my use case.

    Get the zipped script here.
    Come help me get my Chroot Scripts working!

    removed all profiles on my touchpad only
    set my hotspot w/o password and medium signal strength, enabled it and then executed the following commands on xterm

    iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid [Your Hotspotís Name]
    dhclient eth0
    echo nameserver 8.8.8.8 >> /etc/resolv.conf
    echo nameserver 8.8.4.4 >> /etc/resolv.conf

    I didn't have to do anything special other than the above. Goodluck!!

    I don't have my keyboard yet so I can't vi. I would like to capture the cmds I've used so I can execute them easily rather than having to type them each time.

    My script is basically those commands, except it gets the phone's IP address and uses that in the resolv.conf instead of the Google addresses (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).

    I also found that sometimes I got an error with the iwconfig line, so I added a bit to fix that.

    My tp-adhoc script:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    echo "ad-hoc enable"
    iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid $1 2>iwconfig.out
    if [ "x`cat iwconfig.out`" != "x" ] ; then 
      echo modprobe
      modprobe ar6000
      echo ifconfig
      ifconfig eth0 up
      iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid $1
    fi
    echo dhclient
    dhclient eth0 2>dhclient.out
    DHCOUT=`cat dhclient.out`
    echo "output is $DHCOUT"
    NMSRV=`echo "$DHCOUT" | grep DHCPOFFER | cut -f 3 -d " "`
    echo nameserver is $NMSRV...
    echo Update nameserver?
    FNDSRV=`grep $NMSRV /etc/resolv.conf`
    echo checking...
    if [ "x$FNDSRV" = "x" ] ; then 
      echo yes ... add nameserver $NMSRV
      echo nameserver $NMSRV >> /etc/resolv.conf
    else
      echo no ... nameserver exists
    fi
    echo "done."
    The above script is zipped for your convenience here.

    qole, i tried your script but it didn't work for me. TP connects to my iPhone 3G but still i get the 'no internet connection' pop-up. Not a single bit is moved around on the downstream, i can see this in pdaNet, sometimes i see a few bytes upstreaming (but not always). How did you get it to work?

    I don't have an iPhone 3G so I can't test it, sorry... I only have Nokia Linux phones, the N900 and the N950 (yes I know I'm lucky).

    You could post the contents of iwconfig.out and dhclient.out produced by the script, they may give more insight into the problem...

    i think the problem is the same with the older iPhones and the N900 - it's because of the crippled firmware of the wifi-chip (iPhone 3G/S has a Broadcom, don't know about others phones) being limited to ad-hoc mode only. Where can i find the iwconfig.out/dhclient.out ?

    My script makes those two files in the directory that you ran it in, probably /home/root .. You can use InternalzPro to open the files and copy and paste them into here.

    Ok, found it. But note: sometimes the script stalls at 'Update Nameserver?' This was the case on this try, too. Sometimes it updates and echoes successfully 'done', but in any case it's always 'dhcp ack 0.0.0.0', and the script is reporting that it updated the nameserver with 0.0.0.0. Don't know whats going on...

    hi, i tried this script, but doesn't works well for me (i have to connect my touchpad to a nokia E51 with Joikuspot).
    So, i modify it to do some more things: to stop the PmWiFiService (who manage infrastucture mode), to restart the eth0 card, and finally to add three dns (the hotspot's ip and the google ones, 'cause some phones doesn't do dns caching). Maybe some lines can be unnecessary, but it seems works for me

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
     echo "--- ad-hoc enable ---"
     echo stopping infrastucture mode...
     /sbin/stop PmWiFiService
     echo loading modules...
     modprobe ar6000
     echo restarting network card...
     ifconfig eth0 down
     ifconfig eth0 up
     echo starting ad-hoc mode...
     iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid $1 power off 2>iwconfig.out
    if [ "x`cat iwconfig.out`" != "x" ] ; then 
      echo retrying to start ad-hoc mode...
      iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid $1 power off
    fi
    echo "searching for hotspots..."
    dhclient eth0 2>dhclient.out
    DHCOUT=`cat dhclient.out`
    echo "output is $DHCOUT"
    NMSRV=`echo "$DHCOUT" | grep DHCPOFFER | cut -f 3 -d " "`
    echo found hotspot at address $NMSRV.
    echo Update dns?
    FNDSRV=`grep $NMSRV /etc/resolv.conf`
    echo checking...
    if [ "x$FNDSRV" = "x" ] ; then 
      echo yes. 
      echo add nameserver $NMSRV
      echo nameserver $NMSRV >> /etc/resolv.conf
    else
      echo no.
      echo nameserver already exists
    fi
    echo "adding google dns..."
    FNDG1=`grep 8.8.8.8 /etc/resolv.conf`
    FNDG2=`grep 8.8.4.4 /etc/resolv.conf`
    if [ "x$FNDG1" = "x" ] ; then 
      echo add nameserver 8.8.8.8
      echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" >> /etc/resolv.conf
    fi	
    if [ "x$FNDG2" = "x" ] ; then 
      echo add nameserver 8.8.4.4
      echo "nameserver 8.8.4.4" >> /etc/resolv.conf
    fi
    echo "done."

    To restart the PmWiFiService and go back to infrastucture mode, you can use one more small script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    # off
    # restore default resolv.com and back to infrastucture mode
    echo "--- ad-hoc disable ---"
    echo restarting network card...
    ifconfig eth0 down
    ifconfig eth0 up
    echo restoring dns...
    FNDSRV=`grep 127.0.0.1 /etc/resolv.conf`
    if [ "x$FNDSRV" = "x" ] ; then
    	echo "nameserver 127.0.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf
    fi
    echo restarting infrastucture mode...
    /sbin/start PmWiFiService
    echo done.

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!! my touchpad connects to my iphone 3GS 4.3.3 hotspot with pdanet!!!!!!
    in case you guys follow the "android port" stuff, cm7 got released. the install literally took only a couple minutes and was super easy.

    anyway, android cm7 has adhoc enabled. so i was able to connect to my 3GS's pdanet hotspot
