There's no developer published wpa_supplicant replacement for Kindle Fire's system/bin/wpa_supplicant till now.
So I find ZT-180 Adhoc Switcher.apk
is so well to switch Kindle Fire to support Kindle Fire
ZT-180 Adhoc Switcher.apk(174.35K)
A lot of ways to setuo WiFi hotspot with laptop, but Bzeek
is the most useful one and it supports both Win XP and Vista.
I met a problem with Bzeek as well as lots of guys met that after restart the Windows, Bzeek is alway Off instead of On, even you can't turn it On.
So I check google and found that
Personal Hotspot Status
Your Personal Hotspot is Off
Some of the Bzeek settings are not yet in effect. Please restart your computer for the Bzeek settings to take effect. If the problem persists, please contact Bzeek for support.
Maybe the Bzeek service is not running for some reason on your machine.
If it is not solved after boot you can run services.msc and make sure the bzeek service is running.
It's a BUG for Bzeek due to their lack of maintance?
So manually if you like, you should go to
Start > Run > services.msc
Open Windows System Services
Get Bzeek Service and make it START
For easy use I build .bat file to TURN ON or TURN OFF Bzeek Free WiFi service effeciently. You can download them here
included scripts are simple so you can build your own:
Install ZT-180 Adhoc Switcher.apk
Before running it you'd better ROOT
your Kindle Fire for higher user ability.
Run ZT-180 Adhoc Switcher
You should see Switch to Infrastructure mode / Switch to Ad-hoc mode
Click Switch to Infrastructure mode
and it turns to Switch to Ad-hoc mode
then you can click Settings
button to set SSID
and WEP password
I put into Bzeek Free WiFi
as I'm using Bzeek and WEP is not selected for Bzeek. If you use other name and with WEP, just do your way.
Now the button display Switch to Ad-hoc mode
, just click it and turn it to
Ad-hoc Mode, click Enable WiFi
button and it will connect to Bzeek Free WiFi
Then it will ask you put in your Bzeek username and password, finally you can share the internet with WiFi Ad-Hoc from your laptop happily!
I post this method to a Chinese forum and you can check screenshot images and download links there better.
