    Just wondering why my Incredible can't find my TP2's wifi hot spot. I'm at work, and it found three secured networks near me (to which I don't have the PW of course), but it never picked up on my TP2 although they were less than a foot apart from each other. So I added the TP2 network via the add function, and it said my TP2 network was out of range. My work laptop was able to connect to the TP2 (even through VPN) with no problem. Any suggestions????

    the TP2 is creating an "ad hoc" network, and a quick google shows that Android has problems seeing ad hoc networks. It appears there are work arounds if there is root access, which the Incredible doesn't have yet :(

    Thanks Jas! I was just curious as to why it didn't see it.
