    I have a samsung galaxy S i9000, and the mobile access point is activated, I can successfully connect to it using my laptop but when I try to connect using my other mobile (ex: Nokia) to the Galaxy's mobile access point on the target device it says the wireless connection is lost and on the Galaxy the mobile access point is deactivated automatically, is this a limitation that the other device cannot be a wifi mobile (Which i don't think)? OR is this a bug in Galaxy's mobile access point. Any help much appreciated.

    Strange, mine works with other mobiles. What firmware are you on?

    I thought you had to root and download software to do that? I use the app wireless tether with my rooted SGS and that works a treat. I can have up to 5 devices using my internet connection through wifi.

    I'm pretty sure you can only connect to a pc via usb without rooting.

    No, not true at all, even on Eclair firmwares this functionality was added by Samsung.
