connection?

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this...

I just installed B4A and the bridge. I don't have a wifi router. I tried to set up a temp wifi connection directly from the laptop to the phone, but it doesn't seem to work. Am I barking up the wrong tree?

Android doesn't support AdHoc connections. It will not work without a router. If you are running Windows 7 then you can use a software router. Search google for "Connectify".

connection?

I installed Connectify (but there was some sort of problem--a couple of times), and now it seems to be running, but I still can't get my Android to see the wifi signal.

Btw, I'm using Vista, but the connectify site said there was limited support. I guess the settings I am trying to use are wrong, but I can't figure out what to set--and how. TIA for however you can help.

From my experience software routers only work with Windows 7.

I can't get a connection.
Set up windows XP with a cable into the rooter. Android phone connected by WIFI.

I CAN ping the IP address on the phone and I have established that it is the correct IP and that it is on the phone by disconnecting the phone from WIFI when the ping fails as expected.

It may be a firewall issue. Some routers are configured by default to not allow incoming connections.

Maybe some of the ports are blocked (or only some are open).

Anyone using Bridge with ICS?

Hi,

I am now using Ice Cream Sandwich and can not connect with the B4A-Bridge.

B4A-Bridge now can't detect my wireless network IP address.
It stuck with HSDPA IP address used before WiFi connection starts. But device uses WiFi for internet connection?

Any idea or solution ?

Thank you.

You should open the wifi settings and find the wifi IP. Enter this IP in the IDE.

Airplane Mode didn't work.
I tried many things before posting my question.But this evening i tried one more thing and it worked.I disabled mobile data. Then reboot the phone. After boot Bridge came back with my wireless IP.

Thank you.

B4A Bridge

Thank you for presenting this information. I installed the bridge software on my Kindle Fire and was able to make a connection from the IDE.

Hello,

complete newbie here, only started using b4a two days ago, and never really did any programming before, bear with me if I ask stupid stuff..

I am using b4a bridge on a Galaxy Note.. it connects, and it works flawlessly... except that always (happened 5 times out of 5 times I used it so far) after about 10-15 minutes of running, it reboots my phone.

Any clues what I am doing wrong? Or on how to figure it out myself?

I just started using b4a a few days ago myself. We should stick together :)

Anyway, I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and I haven't had that problem yet, although to be sure, I'm not positive that I've had it running for 10-15 minutes. Usually I will design my tutorial apps on the emulator, then when I get it running ok with no errors I'll switch to my tab to see how it looks. Next time I hook up I'll leave it running for 20 minutes or so and see what happens.

This is the message on the device

Works fine on the ZT180 epad with androiud 2.3.

You will need to check the logs and find the full error message.
Does this device have a storage card?
