WIFI and Bluetooth Dongle for Open Hour Chameleon
Hello! Tell me please, this device can only connect to the wi-fi network, or it can create a wi-fi network?

RE: WIFI and Bluetooth Dongle for Open Hour Chameleon
Interesting one as im sure i read its an ac dongle aswell as the usual nbg.

In settings in the tethering and hotspot options are there.

Don't have the dongles using ethernet but do want bluetooth connectivity as ive a bluetooth device id like to pair. However its a little expensive to not utilise the ac wifi.

Anyone test this for the chap? Can't see it working myself as i bet its just receiving.

Someone who has the WiFi dongle.

WiFi is not inbuilt so you have to hope or ask someone whom has the dongle to test if it can be used as a hotspot, assuming that is what you are wanting.

Hotspot not working
===============
Build Number: rk3288-eng 4-4-2 KOT49H eng-jannie-20141231-143114 test-keys

I tried hotspot with OHC wifi/BT dongle. Enabled hotspot. Connected a tablet to this hotspot. Connected OK. But no internet on the tablet.
Then tried the same with TL-WN822N Ver 3.0 USB adapter. Hotspot connects. But no internet on the tablet.

I had wired ethernet and internet on OHC works OK. But no internet on a device connected to the hotspot.

Same here, Hotspot not working. I have to say im not impressed with the dongle. As far as Wifi goes my router is about 25 feet away in a small house and I have connection issues all the time. Had to add a usb cable extension to help fix the issue. Never had issues with usb dongles in the past with Popcorn Hours same spot.

Different box running different systems.

Try getting into a Wifi APP or testing of the WiFi signal that I'll give evidence of poor signal or disconnects so we can present evidence as well as feelings.

We seem to have enough of us saying that the Hotspot doesn't work for that to be confirmed.

Well there is a TPLINK one that also works however it has three revisions to its hardware only only one of them works. Search the forum for more details from the poster.

If your OHC dongle has broke and it wasn't your fault then return it. Get in touch with CM website and explain how its broke and see what they say. If it was just an accident that you did, dont it myself to various USB sticks, then you'll have to bite the cost. The OHC dongle is AC wifi whereas the TPLINK one is not.

Using a metre cable with my dongle made it change from unusable to usable as in the rear USB socket in particular it performs poorly.
