Default foxfi = infastructure mode on transform ultra

For those who haven't checked or found yet, and are looking for infastructure mode. Look on market for foxfi. Tried and works great. Was playing mw3 on ps3 online from my transform ultra. Thanks to blahsaysmeu2u

i would try rebooting both devices. and then just keep turning foxfi on and off..it takes my computer at least ten times of this before it will connect but my nook simple touch connects perfect as does the gf's...she can also connect to my wifi connection through her phone(htc hero) on my tether connection. just play with it but as far as settings i haven't changed anything since i downloaded.
hope that helps.

I had a similar issue. Turned out it was my software firewall causing the problem. After I told it to allow connection to a new network everything worked fine. Hope this helps.

Default FoxFi works with public DNS

Foxfi does work on the Unrooted Samsung Transform Ultra. Just remember to manually set the DNS address on the laptop or tablet you are using to connect to the phone. The phone assigns a DNS address automatically from Virgin mobile.It must be blocked. It was 192.168.47.224. Manually set the DNS address to 208.67.222.222.
Speed was not the best but was usable.

I was having trouble with the tether stopping randomly, turns out juicedefender dosen't play well with foxfi. I need to disable juicedefender whenever I use this. Then it works perfect. Haven't messed with dns or anything else. Hope this may help someone out there!

Rooted , backed up(cwm), flashed with star-scrom and did the bobz OC kernel/wifi

FoxFi doesn't work though .... it appears to function properly but as soon as i activate it and try to connect with my ipad ...... my ipad say something about server connection issue??

Any thoughts? All flashing went perfect and seems great but this is a issue, my old wireless tether had ad-hoc errors .... i might have to go back if this doesn't work though?

Any suggestions?

Default Need a little more help with this one.

I have setup the foxfi and connected my xbox360 to it; however, the Nat type is strict so cannot really use xbox live to play BF3. The Nat type on my old server was open so could talk and connect to everyone without a problem.

Does anyone have advice on this aspect of it?

I am using a Virgin LG Optimus Slider Android phone if that info is needed.

Thanks

P.S. I have a Virgin 2200 wireless device that has the same trouble with xbox live

I dont have an xbox but try tethering your computer to it and running a cat5 between your comp and xbox. Not sure but I think you'd need a cat5 patch cable

most easiest way to get an app not in the market is use ur stock browser and in the browser window type out what u need "foxfi.apk"in ur case.Thats how i always find stuff i want lol.

Exclamation FoxFi Direct Download Link

Here ya go guys... You can download it from their website...

FoxFi Installer

Sprint made google remove it from the playstore... Just remember if it's not working for you... You will have to turn on your wifi on your phone BEFORE loading up FoxFi... Make sure you do not connect to any wifi access point... Then run FoxFi as usual...

You're Welcome!

If your computer is connecting but not getting internet from your phone then you need to change your computers dns for its connection to your phone. Open up the adapters properties and choose ipv4's properties and change your dns to whatever opendns' ips are.

I think its 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220

i first found it when pdanet added it as a pluggin. unless they blocked that in play as well. thats an app worth having to as it is a solid working no root usb and bluetooth tether. if you are having problems finding either i have a copy of the pc installer wich has the apk for pdanet and foxfi in it

we dumped our horribly slow dsl and just keep all 3 phones (1 rooted and 2 unrooted TUs) lit up with foxfi. watch hulu+ and netflicks on the wii, most games on kindle fire require net connection. add to that a laptop and pc.
we get about 1.5mbs average for the dl.

PDAnet usb/bluetooth/wifi tether working on Ultra (no root app)
