    Hello to you all!

    I own Coby Kyros 7022 and i love it. But i have one problem. In my office i don't have wifi connection. So i use my laptop which is wired to the network to create wifi hotspot. I can connect on my laptop for internet my phone, ipod... But my coby kyros can't see the wifi hotspot. I also try to create wifi hotspot with my phone and i can connect everything else, but coby kyros can't see my wifi hotspot.

    Does anyone know why?

    It is wierd because all gadgets i have can see wifi hot spot from laptop except my COBY KYROS.

    Thank you for all your answers!

    Have a nice day!

    Some tablets have a problem with wifi channels 11 and higher. If possible, you might try a lower channel number.

    1. Make sure WiFi is working: can you see any network? can you connect to a normal access point?

    2. Some versions of Andoid block connection to ad-hoc networks. Look for a hack/patch to enable it for your tablet or at least the same Android version (probably you will have to root your tablet first).

    its the ad hoc connection. I had a similar problem trying to do the same thing you mentioned.

    I found a free program called connectify. It solved the problem. Its Androids unwillingness to link with ad hoc connections.

    Do we need to install scannify on both devices or just the onle trying to connect to the hot spot?

    just install connectify on the laptop you want to use as your hotspot. It will basicly turn the ad hoc connection into a wifi hotspot your tablet can connect too. Here is the link to connectify.

    Is there any chance to use ad-hoc from mobile phone. I will be more usable. How is that possible that android tablets have that kind of a problem. I have samsung galaxy tab 10.1 and have the same problem
