    I would still like to see a patch as my phone will not run the newer version of of Android wifi tether it gets errors. My guess is that my phone will only support ad-hoc connections. With it running a custom rom, its fast and I have no reason to get a different phone but it would be so nice to connect my TP to it while on the road. ESPN 3 live football.

    Also, all symbian users are stuck with Joikuspot as the only option and that is ad-hoc, so we really need to get this working
    Dis and jukbee like this.

    Maybe I'm misremembering but wasn't Ad Hoc networking in earlier versions of webOS ?
    Add me to the list of wanting ad hoc networking.

    OK I've now got a couple of very simple shell scripts which run on the touchpad. One disables the webOS WiFi service, sets up eth0 to connect to an adhoc hotspot on my Nokia 5800 running JoikuSpot (free version at this stage), runs dhclient and hardwires my phone provider's nameserver in resolv.conf. The other script simply restarts the webOS WiFi service which effectively undoes the adhoc config and resumes normal webOS WiFi behaviour. It also restores the default resolv.conf. I've been running the scripts via Xecutah. In fact I posted this via my adhoc tethered phone. I presume I can put these scripts in a Mojo(??) wrapper to make them easier to use but I'm not up to speed with software dev for webOS. I'll post tne scripts when I have access to a real keyboard. It's very tedious doing this on the touchpad.

    This is the script I use.

    I can use the web browser but not the email or messaging app.

    -----

    iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid WIFINAME
    dhclient eth0
    echo nameserver 8.8.8.8 >> /etc/resolv.conf
    echo nameserver 8.8.4.4 >> /etc/resolv.conf

    Worked like a charm!
    Web browsing working perfect, Facebook tablet working and even the App Catalog!

    I'm using Nokia N8 with Joikuspot Premium!
    (Oh and I used Novaterm to apply the script)

    It is not Noob friendly yet.

    I am not going to give you exact instructions as this is more for the advanced user.

    But the general plan is.

    1. Debug Mode
    2. Preware
    3. Some sort of terminal from preware.
    4. Run the commands.

    Look up how to install preware and get Xterm working. This is not for the Noob.

    i have preware already, so i just need to install xterm and run those commands in xterm? xterm is in preware?

    It works! I can connect to internet through Joikuspot on Nokia N8 using the script though still have some consistency problem but it works.

    Thanks, rattyDAVE, you are genius!

    I hope someone can tweak it to a patch or an app for easy use.

    Only works for about 10 seconds before settings get messed up some how, I am guessing we need to turn off some process or server that is trying to keep the wifi setup.

    in order for it to work you have to go to your wifi prefs and forget you current wifi network, but keeps wifi on. then run the commands and you should be connected and able to use the internet. its a pain but at least it works
