Question [Q] Galaxy S i9000 as an wireless access point hot spot

Clearly, you can use the tethering within Kies to connect to the interweb which is a massive bonus over most other 2.1 versions

Has anyone investigated using a Galaxy as a Wireless Access Point?

There's a 'droid app here

h t t p : / / c o d e .g o o g l e. c o m / p / android-wifi-tether /

But the Galaxy S isn't mentioned.

Does anyone know of an app that would work the same?

Basically, I want to avoid having to swap my Sim into a MiFi type device (Google it if you've no idea what I'm talking about)

I tried today:
http://code.google.com/p/android-wif...downloads/list
"wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre7.apk"

and .. it works. Sometimes Ive got some "unknown state", but restart (app) will work.

I know how to tether using Kies

I'm talking about setting my phone up so that I can not only access the interweb from my PC using Kies, but also PSP, DS, netbook and so on.

Settings -> Wireless and Network -> Mobile-AP Settings -> Mobile Accesspoint

I thought all Galaxy S phones has mobile AP already built in as standard.

Steps:

Head to settings > Wireless and network > Mobile AP settings

Once in this area, if you have wifi turned on already it will pop up with the following message 'Disconnect Wi-Fi for using Mobile AP'. Click yes.

Next, click the menu key and click settings. In the options that appear,
- tick 'Mobile AP'
- untick 'Hide my device'
- tick 'Tethering' (if you wanna use)
and use the connection password in that screen to connect or use your own.

This all works for me.

Yup, you're right cheers.

Now setup and working.

What's odd is that most plans in the UK actually ban tethering and yet the SGS is the only Android phone that has all this functionality out-of-the-box.

I have US version vibrant from T-Mobile, I don't see this Mobile AP settings. Do I need to disable the sense UI to see it?
