    Default Using the Wifi data of one phone on the other

    Hi,

    I have a Moto G handset and my friend too has the same. His handset is connected to a Wifi network and I want that we both use the Wifi data. Is it possible?

    I tried tethering option but found out that as soon as he creates a hotspot for my handset, his Wifi data connection is disconnected and switched to normal 3G net, and I can only use his 3G net with tethering.

    Is there a solution?

    Regards

    Hello.
    Using the hotspot facility on his phone means sharing his network mobile data with another device. It could be a very expensive addition to his bill if tethering is not included.

    If you are not allowed log in access to that particular wifi, and he cannot pass that on to you, then there is no way around it.

    If it is free WiFi of course, then there is no problem, but I suspect from your question it is not.

    It is WPA/WPA2 PSK protected Wifi network.

    He wants to pass it to me, however he does not know the password (as our office admin guy had entered the password himself while connecting to the network)

    Is there any app available in market via which this could be done??

    If there were I imagine it would be illegal!

    I personally don't see the harm for casual use but the security and administrators are there to protect from skilled hackers I guess - or just to stop people milling around for free WiFi. No joy I'm afraid without the key.
