Using 3G Nexus 7 as a Wi-Fi hotspot
I have a 32GB 3G Nexus 7 and a Samsung Galaxy SII.
I want to use my 3G Nexus 7 as a hotspot for my Galaxy SII. I have searched for this feature everywhere in the device, but couldn't find it.
I have tried some apps such as:
___ FoxFi (WiFi Tether w/o Root): Stopped working as I turn tethering on
___ WiFi HotSpot / WiFi Tether: Doesn't work at all
___ 1-Click WiFi Tether No Root: Works well but my Samsung Galaxy SII wasn't able to obtain IP Address through the Tethering
___ Wifi Hotspot & USB Tether Lite: The same as 1-Click WiFi Tether No Root
Is there anyway to enable Wi-Fi Tethering on my Nexus 7 as a hotspot?
NOTE: I don't want to root my Nexus 7Ibraheem S. Ibraheem
Life is a joy, don't forget that

Re: Using 3G Nexus 7 as a Wi-Fi hotspot
You can work round your problem by using a MIFI. In case you do not know about this product;- It is smaller than any cell-phone. Turn it on and put it in your pocket. It picks up the normal cell-phone signal and outputs it as a normal wifi signal. Up to 4 computers can log on to its wifi signal (if they are in the normal wifi range and you have told the other computers what your code is) (like a normal router). I use the O2 one, no contract - Just PAYG. This gadget is also useful if your N7 is not equipped with a phone card. You can then use the N7 as a Satnav, Using Google Maps or Mapquest (both of these require you to be online whilst setting up the route).
