Huawei Assend Y 100 and RT2800 wifi Tethering
Works, I think. What I've been trying to do for 6 mths. Excellent.
10 hr review:
Very disappointing. Dell Optiplex 745, CF-WU720N dongle with RT2800USB driverand Huawei Assend Y 100, connected as wifi hotspot from the phone via Frisbee
Something keep disconnecting the service as soon as traffic dies down, and it's extremely hard to restart it. Takes MINUTES between screens.
I have 2 other dongles which use same driver, I will test them, and report back.
Neither work. There is a "Power Management=ON" in the WPA-supplicant edit area. Doesn't seem to want to turn off. Devices have no password/encryption???
Can't tell if idiot boarder damaged my ph or my dongles are u/s, but nothing connects anymore and I have to use a cable, which is what I was trying to avoid all these months. Fone may have fried-it's new, so warranty claim is prob valid. NB screens come up FAST with cable, but don't want the daily wear & tear on the connection.
