I looked through the apps settings, is there any way to choose Infrastructure mode or does it just do it automatically? Thanks.

I went from PDAnet to this, and my speed just about doubled based on the tests done at speedtest.net

NO DICE ApeX 1.3.1
Couldn't get AP mode to start no matter what I did after deleting the Apex one out of /system/app

I reinstalled, cleared data, and I get a message:

Quote:

No Access Control!

Sorry, but your kernel does not have all necessary features for the Access Control feature of this application. Access Control will be disabled.

Please see our FAQ: http://...........

I'm not sure what Access Control is.

I can test to see if it uses Infrastructure Mode later tonight.

Regarding the error:
Using GummyJar 2.5
Android Version:
2.2.1
Kernel Version:
2.6.32.9-g55626e1
w30471@il93lnxdroid08 #1

SBF'd and OTA updated last night before installing the ROM.

I should mention, it appears to work otherwise, but again, I will check later. My laptop (corporate assigned) cannot connect to AdHoc networks, so this would be amazing to get working.

Well, yes ... you guys get a message that "access control" is disabled because of a missing kernel-feature. "CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_MATCH_MAC" is missing!

See: http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/wiki/FAQ

So yes, "access control" is unavailable for your devices.

But what do you get instead:

1) Infrastructure mode - your phone acts like "a real" accesspoint!
2) Strong WPA-encryption instead hacked-in-seconds WEP-encryption.

Your choice!

BTW ... if you want the access-control back install a custom kernel (if possible) which has above option/feature enabeld. Also include CONFIG_PROC_FS, CONFIG_IKCONFIG, and CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PRO so that the phone dumps the kernel-config to /proc/config.gz and the app will be able to detect it correctly!

Custom Kernels are not possible on the X, and most likely won't be, since it doesn't look like anyone with the know-how is still working on hacking the locked boot loader.

This is my last Moto product because of it (even though the Atrix is making me wet my pants).

I was mistaken, it is using Infrastructure mode. As I mentioned, I wasn't able to test at the time, and thought Access Control was Infrastructure Mode.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And who cares about Access Control? It's not necessary now that we have strong WPA/WPA2 encryption, and of course a true AP with the Droid X and Droid 2.

Besides, I believe Access control relies on the MAC Address which can be easily spoofed since it's sent as plain text. You guys rock!!!
