    Only trick with that is, if the manufacturer changes the chipset to an equivalent one in future production, subsequent ones won't work.
    We've had that happen quite a few times where a product was reported to work, then a month later the same model # wouldn't work, as the manufacturer changed sources.

    Nexus 7 on a LAN is awesome. Now how do I use it as a wireless router

    Hi,

    I am off abroad and the Hotel only has free LAN so I bought the adapter and an OTG cable so I am good to go with the Nexus 7 on the LAN.

    I would like to save on Roaming charges and connect my iPhone to the Nexus 7 whilst in the room so I can use the networked apps.

    I am trying to use FoxFi but I am not quite there yet - maybe I need PDANet aswell.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this or for alternatives? Most requests are for the other way around!!

    My iPhone is JB'ed but the Nexus is not rooted.

    Thanks

    True, it's common to tether a tablet to a smartphone, but I've never heard of the reverse. I would think that FoxFi wouldn't care which device order you're using. When you say you're "not quite there yet," what exactly do you mean?

    Hi,
    Thanks for the response.

    I have installed FoxFi and can start up the WiFi server which can be seen by my PC and my iPhone.

    However the PC connects as a Public network and so doesn't give me internet access.

    The iPhone sits there with the spinning dial.

    Thanks

    I have registered and started a thread called "Nexus 7 as Wifi Router"

    Thanks for the suggestion, though I came here first as the site is for Thrive, which is what the adapter is designed for.

    Actually it was designed for the Thrive initially, but works perfectly on pretty much any tab I've tried. Only difference is that some require an OTG cable (like the N7) and others like the Thrive do not.
    The real key is the chipset and how Android has the support already 'baked in'.

    Should be able to get some good info over on the N7/N10 site. :thumbup:

    I realise this thread hasn't had any replies for over 18 months, but I thought this might interest users.

    I have been able to set a static IP address on my AT100 using a terminal emulator (Terminal IDE). My tablet is running Dalepl's Rooted ICS 4.0.4 ROM and the USB to Ethernet adapter is a generic (no brand name) with the ASIX AX88772A chipset.

    I let the tablet boot and log in, then disabled WiFi and connected the adapter. Running Terminal IDE and typing ifconfig showed that the device had been detected as eth0. I decided to try setting a static IP (must be root for this) using the following command:

    ifconfig eth0 192.168.x.x netmask 255.255.255.0 up

    I was able to ping my PC and connect to the Internet both using a dynamic IP and the static IP.

    Hope that's useful to someone.
