    Hey guys, I hope you can help. I have a Z10 and I work offshore where the Wifi is locked and you're only allowed to have one device on the system. Somehow they add your Wifi address from your device into something and It works. I have my Z10 hooked up and would Love to Hotspot or Teather It to my iPad but It keeps looking for a mobile network instead of sharing the Wifi. I'm currently in West Africa (Trying to avoid Ebola) and I'm far enough from shore that I can't pick up reception to even bother trying the network on roaming or changing SIM Cards. If there is a way to straight up share Wifi I would appreciate It if you can help. Thanks a lot.

    I just bump the thread since I really don't know much about tethering.

    But stay safe and healthy and welcome to Crackberry

    Currently, the Z10 must turns off Wi-Fi connections before it turns on Hotspot. Hotspot only works using cellular data connection.
    Not sure if this is a hardware or software limitation

    I know of other hardware that can receive a Wi-Fi signal and also become a hotspot for other devices...but not the Z10.

    I apologise but I'm not sure what the modem mode is? Is that just the normal Hotspot setting? I've tried that one plenty.

    In modem mode, you use Bluetooth or USB to access Internet through your mobile.

    No, It keeps wanting to turn on the Mobile network. Is there no way to share Wifi and not use a mobile network? Might be a million dollar app right there.

    I believe the Z10 uses the same wifi receiver to transmit for hotspot...so it's one or the other.
