Tethering with Android

Forum thread started by admin on Sun, 2011-10-02 18:36

I was wondering if it is possible to connect to the internet in Haiku by tethering with my android phone because there are no drivers for my ethernet or wifi card. I thought that maybe the usb device would appear as a network adapter in the preferences when I plugged in my phone, but this does not seem to be the case.

Android uses RNDIS for USB tethering, which currently isn't supported in Haiku nor FreeBSD where Haiku pulls some of the code for its network stack.

If you have a working wlan on your laptop you can use Android 2.3 as a hotspot :)

Our network was down at home and we set up my girfriends HTC as a hotspot. Made changes in my config file (rename hotspot name on the phone without spaces, ad '_' in stead) and I was up :D. Dind't work for my girfiends Laptop with Windows 7 ;)</
