Anyone have PDAnet working with Linux?


Wednesday 03rd of February 2010 / droidforums.net
I recently put PDAnet on my phone and love the tethering under windows xp. I really like it on my lunch breaks were our small concrete lunchroom at work gets no wifi access. It works flawless on my xp partition on my laptop. The speeds over my eris rival the speed of the overused internet connection at work. So I give it 9 out of 10 for xp. Thing is I have dual boot laptop that runs much faster and beter battery life in linux, Mandriva 2010. I would love to use this feature on my linux partition at lunch instead of the bloated windows xp install that sucks the battery dead in 20-30 mins. PDAnet offers client programs for windows and mac, but not linux. There websight says to use on linux through bluetooth or wireless. But for the life of me I cant figure out how to get the wifi setup to work, as there is no walkthrough on site. I am having difficulty getting linux to accept my bluetooth usb stick, a insignia bluetooth adapter. Anyone have this running in linux and can point me in the right direction?

Thursday 03rd of January 2013 / androidforums.com
I just got the xperia play with android 2.3 and don't plan on ever activating it through a carrier. I'm using my home wifi for everything and all of that seems fine. The only problem that i'm having is when i use thw web browser to surf to google then click the signin button, i get an error page saying Web page not available. I can sign into hotmail...I can browse to any page except for the google account stuff.I am able to sync with the Accounts & Sync using my google email.I cannot access the google market, it gives same error, Web page not availableI can install apk using my usb.I can play internet games like pocket legends. Do these google website pages require me to activate the phone? Is there a setting I need to set?Is there an update that i need?

Some major problems with Nexus 4


Thursday 09th of May 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hey guys! I'm new to this forum, and i know its not the best way to start a post and conversations, but the whole point of joining androidcenteral was to find out what exactly is wrong with my phone.I got my Nexus 4 about 3 and a half month ago, and it has been working perfectly. But a few times during each month, i noticed how the phone started to randomly shut off, and wouldnt turn on until i hold the power button for about 2 minutes. It has happened today again, and im quite sick of it. Better yet, the internet connection has been messed up. When i tried to connect to google, it told the the website was a threat, and wouldn't let me even connect to it. Nor could i access any of my internet running aps. Just as well, i had noticed that in my messages, i cant see what i type to the other person. I type, and send, yet i do not see what i sent, but the receiver does though.And one last thing to sum it all up, i disconnected from my internet server, and now the phone wont even let me connect to it ,and keep s repeating the same message " Authenticating..." or "Problem wi

Any one having this reception problem with the At&t Nexus One??


Friday 19th of March 2010 / android.net
im in a great ATT 3g area...and i notice from time to time, i have no data for no reason...and the 3g is gone from the signal meter in the status bar. it comes back, but its really annoying, because i cant do anything with data for the few seconds i have no coverage, even though i have full bars of 3g coverage in my house...weird... when i try to access an app or go on the internet...i have full bars of 3g service and i get a "NETWORK ERROR" message...goes away, but very very annoying for the 5-10 seconds i cant access any type of data...it would make sense if i was in a bad signal area...but it doesnt even switch to Edge...i get nothing....i have checked all the settings and all is set correctly...i have never had any problem with any Att phone.....

Massive problems with 4.3 update (urgent help needed)


Wednesday 18th of December 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I just received the 4.3 update OTA on Sunday, and now i have MASSIVE problems with my phone. my battery is draining rapidly, i cant access any files- My files freezes my phone, i cant download apps, or files from emails, my camera cant save photos, gallery freezes my phone, it reboots randomly, and vibrates randomly. I cant even connect to a PC Sprint recommends a clean wipe, but there are files i don't want to loose. the easy answer is "you should have backed up first" well... i would have had i known it was doing a massive update. i didn't get any warning it was going to download, let alone break my phone. is there any work arounds to get my files off the internal storage, or a new rom onto the sd card to then recover, or even a sideload of a file management app which might be able to read my internal memory? I do not have a PC at home to work from, only an adroid tablet. and my phone is my only Internet source at home.

wifi tethering to Windows 8 issue


Tuesday 07th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a Motorola Atrix HD with AT&T and just got a new Gateway laptop with Windows 8 and cant tether it to my phone. I get a connection but cant access the internet, it doesn't even say limited access most of the time. kind of flips back and forth between limited and connected. It worked fine on old computer with Windows Vista and it works if I tether with a usb but not over wifi. I have disabled firewall, disabled Avast internet security and tried numerous other things. I have no issues with any other wifi connections and other devices can connect to my phones wifi but not this one with windows 8. I cant figure this one out people.

Unable to sync with google


Thursday 13th of March 2014 / androidforums.com
I am having a strange issue on my Nexus 5 for the last 5 days. My phone has stopped syncing to my google account. Now I am not getting mew mails on gmail app, I can't connect to play store, can't sign in to youtube ,can't see my google cards, hangout and google calender not working. I removed my google account from settings and tried adding it back but was unable to do so. I got the following error message"Couldn't sign in - Can't establish a reliable connection to the server.This could be a temporary problem or your device may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call customer care". Today I also did a factory reset on my phone and erased all contents but I was still unable to sign in. I even tried changing my google account password on my computer but still cant log in on my phone.Here I would also like to mention that internet on my phone is working fine. And stock email app is able to access my gmail account. Kindly advise what can I do to get my phone to sync again.
