    Has anyone managed to get it to work with a Linux laptop? In the countryside where i am my mobile broadband fails frequently so it's a good feature. My Win7 laptop connects easily, but my LInux laptop doesn't.
    Haven't spent much time on the problem either - so before I do, anyone got it to work or is it a waste of time trying to?

    Wifi is a standard so any wifi device should be able to connect to the Desire's hotspot. Re-enter your key and try a different security mechanism like WEP and see if that works. WEP isn't recommended for use out and about because it is not secure but it's fine for a quick test.

    Hi - I have just tested this with my laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx - works correctly. I have also used the hotspot with my MacBook running Snow Leopard. As per the other post, I would look at your wifi security key - the default is 1234567890 I believe, although you can specify. Cheers :)
