[Q] Mobile AP connection to Samsung S6 LCD.
I recently bought a Samsung Series 6 Tv and Home Theatre System. Upon upgrading my mobile phone last week I opted for the Galaxy S as it will provide internet axcess to my Tv as I was using an iPhone and 3G dongle for internet axcess to my PC but both were stand alone devises and neither would connect my Tv to the internet. I have a Neccom wireless modem connected to all devices and they are also hard wirded connecting to the PC through the Realtex eathernet card. Most of the time they are stwitched off due to the fact that the iPhone won't give me internet connection without them switched off. The 3G dongle does.
So I pull the power on the Net Comm modem. Switch on Mobile AP and go into Setup/Network on the Samsung Tv. Make sure the SWL Samsung Wirless Link is switched because with it on I can't connect. Tests on the Tv to Router. So I see the Galaxy S and press connect, it tries for 30seconds and then comes the resulting message.....Connectio Failed. Have tried every comb off/on. Rebooting, downloading apps, changed settings, internet searches and Samsungs Help Desk. Ha, you might want to change that name.
So here I am, so close but yet so far. I hate that saying. So I've run out of options. Wait I could try connecting through the Blueray and with a miricale I might be able to axcess the internet through that. I'm a glass half full kind of guy, but I'm a realist and I very much doubt it. Im sure it something simple but I'm not a simple guy either and it's got me f'ked. I thought something else was using the Wi Fi as it wanted the Wireless connection from the phone to the router switched off. Then I thought it was the Tv because AP mobile seemed to be working fine. I could connect an iPhone through the Galaxy's AP Mobile and get internet. I eventually dismissed that theory because I can connect the Tv to the wirless router no problem.
So everything is new and working properly just the Tv wont connect to the Galaxy S when in AP mobile mode. It tries but fails. The sim card in there now does not have internet tethering set up on that number but I did try it days ago with a sim card with a 5G data attached to it but I've come along way since then but I feel like I haven't taken my first step.
Run out of things to try.
