Tethering Nexus 7 to HTC Desire
Hi All, I'm new here and joined today as I'm stuck with trying to tether my Nexus 7 to my HTC Desire. I'm not much of a techie so forgive me if I don't know all the technical terms but hopefully I will make myself understood!
I've tried using the phone's own wifi hotspot function and the N7 found it and said it was connected with excellent signal strength but I couldn't access the web and the fan-shaped icon indicating connectivity stayed grey instead of going blue as it should. I have tried WEP, WPA & WPA2 security but it just did the same as I've described.
Someone suggested I download FoxFi to the phone and PdaNet to the tab, which I did. I activated the FoxFi hotspot on the phone and the tab said it was scanning for it, but it didn't find it.
Now I'm stuck and grateful for any advice or suggestions, thanks.
I'm in the UK btw and am with Virgin Mobile.
