Choking on the stench of ambition in Washington DC

Using Joikuspot, an ad-hoc wifi tether program for Symbian3, I am able to tether Windows CE 2.0 and 6.0 machines.

However, with my J720/J728, the Nokia shows a connection but I can not connect to internet or email. I have tried an Orinoco Gold, a Netgear MA401, a Netgear MA701, and 3Com 3CRWE62092B. I have tried using specific, matching channels in the ad-hoc setup but no go.

The Joikuspot has a default gateway of 192.168.2.1 and gives a default ip of 192.168.2.2 to the J's. If I set up a static IP on the J's, using those specs along with 192.168.2.1 as my primary DNS and the default 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask, I still can't connect, but when I tried to use internet radio/gplayer with the ip address of http://50.77.161.149:18000, I WAS able to connect and could play MSNBC. I can not connect to http://50.77.161.149:18000 without a static address on the J's.

In IE/Netfront, if I use numerical addresses in place of lettered website, I get a MS Info page showing my ip address to be t-mobile's (my carrier) numerical address.

Any other handle I can jiggle? I'd give up, but it's strange that my CE 2.0 devices and my TinyBook surf without complaint, and I very much want to get my J720 back on-line.

This is for posterity only: folks who have trouble connecting HPC2000 to Joikuspot should use eZSpot (Symbian3) instead.

For some reason, eZSpot tethers to WinCE 3.0 and Joikuspot tethers to WinCE 2.0 and WinCE 6.0.

Just as in the movie Castaway, when Wilson the Volleyball asks why, Tom Hanks and Symbian users both answer, "I don't know."
