Droid X with Mobile HotSpot service. I need a review of the setup procedure. Attempted to setup the laptop (Windoze XP Pro), and it only had WEP and WPA options in the Wizard, not WPA2. Do I use the DROID SSID? The Wizard placed severe limitations on the size of the password. Setting up the DROID hotspot for WPA2, just asked for a password, no limitations on format.
I think I'm getting a bit of mixed signals. Just what is the sequence of setup steps?
Thanx for the help.
I haven't used the hotspot for the Droid X, but it should handle just like most traditional encryptions. You set a pass-key on your broadcasting end, then input the pass-key on the device you want to connect to the hotspot. If I recall correctly WPA2 also allows you to use a passphrase, usually more than 8 characters long and could be any combination or letters symbols or words.
Ie: I8Ho7dogS or you could be really fancy with it and go 20+ characters with symbols and such.
Glad I could help. That is what I like about WPA2, you can use pass phrases. This can make your Wireless security stronger as well as make it easier for you to remember your pass.
Keep a track on your data usage while you are using hotspot so that you don't get hit with a $20 per Gb overage unexpectedly.
