I have bought a Samsung Galaxy S2 which I want to use as a wifi hotspot uing my laptop.
The problem is that I can connect to the wifi hotspot but can't browse. I use Google Chrome which gives me error 105 - Unable to resolve DNS server address and Explorer just says no network available. I've also tried connecting my PS3 wirelessly with the Wifihot spot and I get the same problem - it connects but cannot browse.
I have unlimited internet on my mobile plan (3 One plan) and I also have no problems in tetherring the phone and using it as a modem - the laptop connects fine.
My laptop and PS3 both can also connect with no problems to my home broadband wirelessly.
I've called 3 customer services and so far have flushed the DNS using command prompt and ran a command which I think was to reset winsock and restarted the laptop with no success.
3 then asked me to delete the existing network so as to do a new one, but when I tried I wasn't able to delete the connection or reset it. I got a message:
"It's not possible to disable the connection at this time. The connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support Plug and Play or it may have been initiated by another user or the system account".
3 have said that they are unable to help me further until I can remove the network connection but I'm stuck on how.
My laptop is a Amilo L7300 running Windows XP. I have a Ralink RT2500 Wireless LAN card. The phone is a Samsung Galaxy S2 on Android 2.3.3 with a build number of Gingerbread.XWKF4. The Kernel version is 188.8.131.52-I9100XWKF4-CL280512 if it's of any help or relevance.
