    Question Connecting to a cellular network

    All,

    Sorry if this has been asked and answered: Assuming a TFP without a docking station, how can one connect the device to a cellular network? Assume that a rooted Android smartphone with Bluetooth is available. How would your response change if the docking station were available?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the Forum. The only way to connect to your cell is by tethering. Dock or no dock

    Hi, I you should not need to root the Android phone depending on which one you have.

    Settings... Wireless and networks... Enable Portable Wi-Fi hotspot and connect the TF using the setting in the options set below the enable option.

    On the TF you should be able to connect to the phone using Wi-Fi to use the phones 3G Internet .

    No difference with or without the dock. It has to be done via WiFi or Bluetooth.

    Has anyone successfully got wifi tethering working yet. I would have thought it would be easy to setup, well its kicking my assenday.

    Have a rooted EVO 4G running KingsROM Unleashed R5. Right now I am trying to use PDAnet which I have a license for. Once I get something working I wil post the config.

    All,

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, setting the phone to a be a wireless hotspot would work, however, in my experience, there is no single faster way to drain the phone's battery. Is there some approach which uses Bluetooth which might be gentler on the battery?

    Depending on your phone, you can pair the two devices in the bluetooth settings. Then go into the Transformer Bluetooth settings, find the device and tap the spanner wrench on the right. Tap the use this for internet check box.

    So long as your phone can share via Bluetooth, it should work the same as WiFi.

    I use PDANet to tether my laptop to my phone. It allows bluetooth tethering and does not require rooting the android device to install. I see there is a Tablet Beta version in the marketplace

    Is there a way to tether another wireless device (e.g. another TF) off my TF? You ask why not directly connect to the same network? MAC id security prevents it.
