I have the same problem and need help with my Toshiba Thrive Tablet running Android 3.1 Stock ROM. There seem to be different versions of the wpa_supplicant file and I can't figure out which one to use with my Thrive Tablet. I haven't been able to find any step by step instructions either on how to make the modifictions with the file so I can see Ad-Hoc networks with my Thrive. I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks so much!
Check this link out. The file that I used is here in the link. Download, and follow the process.
PS: adb commands are required if you connect your tablet to the PC and try to control it from there. If you are carrying out the process directly from the tablet. omit the adb commands. And don't forget to reboot after the process, else it won't work.
I don't know what to do, I feel like I've tried everything. I want to be able to broadcast the wifi from my phone a t-mobile HTC Hd2 , to my other phone and my boyfriends phone (mine is a HTC Sensation his is a HTC Incredible - both running android). My laptop sees the connection and connects just fine. Neither of the phones sees the connection to be able to connect to. I don't see an option in the phone (Sensation or Incredible) to enable ad-hoc networks? My father also has a HTC Sensation and when he turns on his wi-fi as a hotspot, I can connect to it without a problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
