Alternative is to go for NAS products but haven't really found anything that convincing in that arena...Thanks Tor: I haven't heard any more problems from my friend, so I assume it is working well.I've tried all sorts of combinations but I just can't get it to work. Cheers Sean Sean: Try disabling wireless security and see if that works. So basically, I want to:- 1) setup my mac to work like a wifi router 2) use this wifi router to give internet access to my wm6 phone which is wifi capable. Wow, that's coincidental - I was just checking that phone out at my local 3 store because my mate's raving about it.
I setup the base station to use WPA2 and selected Pre-Shared Key and as the password type, then I supplied a 64 character key/password and I set it to use channel 1.
The HTC Ty TN 2 supports WPA-AES, so you should be able to use WPA security on the wireless connection. It's probably worth getting a wireless router or an Air Port later anyway, so your Mac doesn't have to be on all the time for wireless.
You may however, have to drop back to WEP security, because I've always found the WPA implementation on Windows Mobile a bit flaky, and not as stable. I have an Airport Express and wanted to get my PSP and AT&T Tilt to connect to it.
However, XP/Vista (and most other operating systems) have NO ISSUE with reading and writing to FAT32 disks larger than 32GB.
You just can't format them as FAT32 using XP/Vista (external HDs generally come preformatted anyway, and there are free utilities that can format them).
