    Just got 2.2 installed on my vodafone desire, and decided to test out the wifi hotspot since my girlfriend doesnt have internet in her flat.

    We got the desire setup ok, and we got her laptop connected, but the only site that would load was facebook, and even then it had a few errors and took a few refreshes before it loaded correctly

    Is there any settings that would allow it to connect to other sites? I tried google, bbc, hotmail, tvshack and facebook.

    Thanks :D

    I've got the hotspot working with my laptop and all sites work, and I don't think there are any settings to change this. If there are errors on the FB page it could be that the data connection signal through your phone is low, how are you connected? 3G, HSPA, GPRS?

    Yeah it could be a bottleneck on your desire also. if you have a strong signal (H or 3G) try turning mobile data off and back on.
