    Default Foxfi with nexus 7

    Can you use Foxfi with the nexus 7? I ask bc I have an htc rezound and can only use the Bluetooth to tether.

    I give up. I could get no consistency with connections. More often than not I could not get a connection away from my home network. I finally caved and switched to Verizon share everything so I can get the mobile hotspot. I have not had a chance to try it out but will later tonight. I have a Rezound and an N7.

    Yeah I'm trying to figure it out myself right now and can't seem to get it.

    How come when I try to use FoxFi, I just get stuck with 'Obtaining IP Address'?

    I use FoxFi with PdaNet tablet and they work together flawlessly.

    I don't have PdaNet on my N7 but it still sees the available wireless network when I activate the Foxfi Wireless Hotspot and then connects with it flawlessly. I have a Motorola Bionic on Verizon.

    I have tried FoxFi running on my Verizon Razr Maxx and connecting my Nexus 7. I also have "legal" hot spot on my Xoom. Both seem to work fine for me.

    I just tried FoxFi to see if it works and really don't plan on using it as a full time network soluction.

    Are you using a Rezound?

    If so, can you tell me precisely what you do to get it to work? I have been trying for days...

    Using FoxFi on a ICS Nexus S. Good grief it takes about 5 minutes for the N7 to connect, not sure why..but it does work. WiFi tether for root however..does not work. Cant get that thing to work in infrastructure mode.

    No go for me either. Nexus 7 & Samsung Galaxy Indulge (Metro PCS 4G phone forever on 2.2). The tablet recognizes it and connects but never gets beyond "obtaining IP address." It then cycles back and forth between connecting and obtaining IP address. After about 5 minutes it just says something like "avoided weak internet signal" and defaults back to my normal WiFi. Not sure if this is because some other setting is interfering, or if it just isn't compatible for some reason. Generally have no problem with 4G connection on my phone.

    Have not tried Bluetooth method yet.

    For the folks having trouble, try this:

    Install FoxFi on your phone. If you can't get it working in WiFi mode, switch to Bluetooth. If your Nexus 7 and phone aren't paired - pair them. Since I am running it on an OG HTC Evo 4G, I have no choice but to use it via Bluetooth.

    Install PDA Net on your Nexus 7 and hit connect. It it fails to connect, try it again. Sometimes PDA Net needs a few seconds after FoxFi gets up and running to see the connection.

    What are you using to tether your phone to your N7? I thought HTC has locks in place that prevent their phones from being used as hotspots?

    I have Verizon G3 and works fine. To work though, wifi must be active on the G3 along with 4g.

    Foxfi uses the 3g/4g radio of the phone for the data connection to your carrier AND the Wi-Fi radio for connection between the phone and the nexus. Make sure you have both enabled or it won't work. I found that out the hard way. I'm using Sprint and a Samsung epic 4g.
