1. I know how much frustration I went through because of this. When I had my HP Touchpad earlier this year, it absolutely would not detect then wifi hotspot from my N8, even though my laptop would detect and connect to it with no problem.

    Turns out that Nokia phones do not support WPA/WPA2 security on wifi. They support only WEP, which is ridiculous. I've confirmed this on the N9 too.

    That was another reason for getting the android-running Pliris Blaze

  2. Strange. I used Joiku extensively for about 5 months earlier in the year and it connected to everything connectable. I choose to believe this is a one-off fault. Sorry.

    Am not sure on watz apenin here.. I do connect perfectly with this same joiku to my 603.. Probably some belles, definately not all..

    I guess Nokia or Joiku should be able to update their app to support WPA/WPA2. I also found out that Blackberries don't detect adhoc wifi networks eg those generated by connectify hotspot.
    The world is moving away while Nokia is stuck. Let's hope WP8 moves ahead with the crowd

  5. Was just introduced to the 'wonderment' of *harpic* (....sorry, couldn't resist) Joikuspot (Nokia E72) when I made the transition to Android. It always connected to my Laptop.

    Fast forward 3months

    Got a 5' Android player. Hijacked pop's Nokia E6 and voila Joikuspot (who named that app??) Still works.

    The E6 was running on anna back then. Haven't tried it since the upgrade to belle.

  6. Trae,

    Sorry, but this is not one-off. As already mentioned by other commenters, Joiku uses an older technology that many newer WiFi-enabled devices do not support. I had this problem with every Symbian/Belle smartphone that I have used in recent times.

    Challenge: Find someone with a PlayBook, TouchPad or current Android smartphone. You cannot get them to find a Joiku hotspot .

    Problem is Joiku creates an ad hoc network which these devices does not support. Android on the other hand creates infrastructure network.

    There are definitely work arounds to the connection problem, but the geeky type just wants things done simply sometime.

    Nokia Suite works flawlessly for using the phone as a modem. The PC internet connectoin app does not install all the phone's drivers so it might not work.

    If android phone supports do support WEP and WPA access points, why would it not detect a Connectify hotspot?

    Old tech or not, if it does work you'll use it. We could have all set our phones permanently to 3G and never switch back to Edge cos its speed is crap.

    Had the same problem. works perfectly with a laptop but it's virtually non-existent to smartphones. It is a known issue not one-off

    Download the full version of the app from the ovi store. I remember using a galaxy sII with tethered internet from my nokia 701 problem free.

  11. You said:

    Android does wireless sharing effortlessly. Windows Phone does same. iOS too

    Sorry to disagree as regards iOS. Never been able to share Internet from any of my iOS device ever. It is restricted, country and wireless carriers dependent.
