I have Virtual Access Point Version 3 trial version
I get to the point where I can see the wireless network it creates,
but I get the dreaded 169 IP address when I look at the details on my
iPhone. This should be a 192.168.x.xx address. Where is your software
getting the IP address, gateway and subnet mask from? I don’t see any
options for either DHCP or static IP addresses. I would prefer a
static IP address, but I can live with DHCP
I have a Sitecom USB wireless device on the PC (a laptop without an
on-board wireless adapter) which I use for sharing the connection.
My other PC uses an Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 and I can see the
wireless network from here (It’s the only one within range). It says
I am “joined” rather than “connected”, but PINGing my own FTP server
fails. What I haven’t tried yet is using this PC as the “host”.
Do I need to install your software on this PC and connect from there
rather than from the Wreless WiFi Link? If this is the case, then why
don’t I need to install anything on the iPhone?
Is there any kind of manual for your software?
Windows XP Professional SP3 on both PCs
DSL modem Ethernet connected to router. PCs connected to the RJ45s on
Laptop 1 – Acer 1355LC with Sitecom USB wireless adapter
Laptop 2 – Acer 7730G with own on-board wireless adapter. If it’s not
possible for the host to be Laptop 1, I could use this one, but I
prefer this one stays with a cable connection
Laptop 3 – HP with own on-board wireless adapter. Not tried yet, but
this one cannot be the host.
And of course an iPhone4
Thanks in advance for any pointers
