I’m now a WalkingHotspot

I’ve been playing with WalkingHotspot. Does what it says on the tin. Works with Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.

I'll have to agree with ewan here, i've gotten Joiku to work, but it usually stops after 15 minutes and is buggy as hell. WalkingHotSpot works out of the box and does exactly what it should and nothing more. Love it.

I've only had a chance to try it out with a Nintendo Wii and DS Lite, doesn't work with either. If they could get it working with the DS Lite it'd make mulitplayer games on the go an actual realistic proposition!

Didn't work for me. Installed fine, connected fine, and connected the ipod to the wifi that it set up fine. But the moment I open safari or email etc I get a server error… looking at the connection details no DNS is being provided to the device from the phone, just an IP. Joiku worked fine first time though.

I am using an E65 so I have mailed them to see if there is anything specific I need to be aware of as I am getting no errors anywhere else etc. Shame, as this software looks otherwise amazing.

I think it's because it only supports an 'ad-hoc' mode connection at the moment and these devices expect an 'infrastructure' mode access point… Given JoikuSpot also does this, I assume it's easier to achieve on the handset.
