Stopped working on my old M7 after an update, I rely on it so I had to nandroid back to an old install to keep it. Does it work on this phone (not in ad hoc, but infrastructure mode) ?

I sideloaded it from the Google Code Repo

Works fine without any issues.

That's awesome. Can you tell me which version, and/or what settings you're using to get it to work?

Is it infrastructure or ad-hoc? I am hoping I can get it going as WPA2 in infrastructure mode.

Thanks, man

Hmm, how funny. I tried that app but could not make it work. That and every other app that used to work in my rooted Evo 4G would not in the M8. Until I found this one today, although paid, but it works, for now anyways:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...fitetherrouter

The only thing is, can't quite make it work with WPA2, only with WPA. But hey, it works.

Edit: Based on feedback from app developer, in HTC phones it seems to work in reverse, i.e. set to WPA and you get WPA2, set to WPA2 and you get WPA. Specially important to remember if you want to use a ddwrt client bridge.
