Hi. Im not able to tether my phone using wifi hotspot. My laptop with xp is able to detect the signal but when I click connect is keep saying Aquiring Network Address. Is it my system probelm??? Im not able to tether even with USB connection, used some third party app for that and it worked. Uliwooly.. any solution for this????

Hi, it is stated that tethering works with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Linux.
Goto phone tethering Menu, then tap Help.
Suggest to try apps like PdaNet or Easy Tether Lite from Android Market.

yes.. it also says that to make usb tethering work for windows xp we need to install tetherxp.inf . Even this didnt work. So I have gone for a 3rd party app. But does this issue also applies for wifi hotspot or tethering???? thanks for the reply.

Are you able to aqurie a network address on another phone or computer? That might be worth checking.
If not, a software repair of the phone via PC Companion could help.

Im not able to acquire the address in my PC. It stands there saying Acquiring network adress. But other phones are able to connect to my wifi hotspot. I will try repairing with PCCompanion and reply to you. Thanks for the reply
