Some network cards don't support AP mode. This is true in my case and the only option I have for sharing my wired internet connection is AdHoc (Open or WEP). However, the N1 is unable to connect to adhoc networks AFAICT.
Or is there another way?
I have Connectify working on my PC and my N1 can see the SSID but can not obtain an IP address. Connectify can also see my N1 trying to connect. Has anyone got Connectify and their N1 to work properly? If yes, how?
I use my N1 on Connectify (Win7) all the time. No problems... except for last night. My N1 was having wifi connectivity issues (which it sometimes does) connecting to either my friend's wifi router or Connectify. My laptop (Thinkpad X200T) was able to connect to the router no prob, so I thought I'd turn on Connectify for my N1. However, my N1 was stuck at "Obtaining IP Address...". Similarly, when connecting to the router, my N1 would try to connect, then says "disconnected" -- and this cycle repeats itself infinitely.
I was using FRF73 last night. Just now, I upgraded to FRF85B (T-Mobile), so maybe my N1's wifi is more stable.
BTW, I did nothing specify with my Connectify. I ran the wizard and got everything up and running. I also upgraded to version 2 (or was it 2.1) last night.
