The easy way is to go to your WiFi Settings, and hit Menu > Advanced. It'll show up there, or you can set it to a static IP if you want. The cool way is to dial *#*#4636#*#* to open the Testing menu. Then click WiFi information, then WiFi Status.
This can be done on Linux or Windows: http://blog.mathieu.carbou.me/post/60454997009/reverse-usb-tethering-with-android-2-2 STEP 1: For Windows: Install USB drivers from Android SDK For Linux: Nothing to do STEP 2: On Nexus One: Connect USB cable and activate USB Tethering. You should see on linux or windows a new network interface. ...
Android comes with ifconfig, install Terminal Emulator and type "ifconfig eth0", or use "netcfg" to list all available devices. You need root to use ifconfig though.
It's simple. In the terminal (requires root), or in adb shell, issue the command settings put global captive_portal_detection_enabled 0 and reboot. It should be disabled. The existing state can also be verified via the command settings get global captive_portal_detection_enabled A response of "null" indicates the global key value has not been set and ...
There are some more possibilities -- but all of them I know of require a rooted device. Using the Reverse Tether App First, there's an App named Reverse Tether available for free on the Play Store (it's a limited trial, which restricts the time you can be connected -- but at least you can test this way whether your device is fully supported; the full ...
I was able to see which app had an open port using standard linux knowledge. Install terminal emulator or do an adb shell and execute the following: shell@android:/ $ cat /proc/net/tcp sl local_address rem_address st tx_queue rx_queue tr tm->when retrnsmt uid timeout inode 0: 0100007F:1C23 ...
At first, I thought this was most likely an instance of Android cloud to device messaging, but it can't be: WhatsApp doesn't declare the necessary permissions, and it works in Eclair (Android 2.1), while cloud to device messaging (and its replacement, Google Cloud Messaging) require at least Froyo (Android 2.2). However, it is most likely some sort of push ...
Android has "partial" support for IPv6, which basically means there's some code for it but it doesn't really work yet. Check this Google thread for more info.
According to Steve Kondik, this is essentially old code that is leftover from older versions of CyanogenMod: This was only here for apps that were statically linked against uclibc in old CM versions. It can likely just be removed. However, he also goes on to note: Also, this file is NOT written when connecting to a network as /system is readonly. ...
Based on avirk's hint, I found a way. First press the code *#0011# GSM example: GSM900: IDLE T: 10, B: 10 Rx Pwr: -94, Rx ual: - Rx Lev: 21, Tx Lev: 0- Speech VER: AMR EFR FR VOC: AdaptiveRate TS: 0 Temp: 68 Batt: 71 LNA: 0 Service: Available It is obvious that it's using 900MHz band, from the "GSM900". UMTS WCDMA example: WCDMA: Idle Rx CH: 10612, R: ...
OS Monitor lists network connections by app: OS Monitor and Connection Tracker listing connections (source: Google Play; click image to enlarge) As you can see, OS Monitor lists up all connections, and lists the corresponding app "owning" this connection along. This should enable you to see all servers your suspicious app connects to. There are other ...
There is Shark that does just this, it requires root, there is also Pixie, but it too requires root.
Updating this question to say that as of Android 4.0, IPv6 is fairly well supported. There are still no visual indicators that it is running/working, but devices pick up IPv6 addresses and try to use them by default.
WIFI PPPOE by cnDDU is an app that allows you to make a PPPoE connection from your phone over a wireless connection: ...main purpose is for user to make PPPOE connection via WIFI, e.g. dialing through ADSL Modem with user name and password provided by some internet ISPs. This app makes the Android devices be able to connect to Internet directly via ...
Hey! there is an app for that Android Usb Port Forwarding http://www.codeproject.com/kb/android/usbportforwarding.aspx I am a bit confused how to use it, please inform if you get it working perfectly.
In a word: No. In order for all applications on the device to have access to a cifs mount, cifs support needs to be compiled into the kernel (or at least available as a loadable module). I've never seen a device that shipped with such a kernel from the manufacturer. Doesn't mean that they don't exist, I just haven't seen them. Now, for some devices that ...
Theres's an app for that. See Fing.
Either your phone silently drops pings, or the router it's behind, either your wifi router, or the 3G network's router that NATs your phone drops them.
A good application to do that is the Samba Filesharing. It shares your sdcard, making it easy to transfer files from/to your phone. Settings After installing the application from Google Play, open it and fill a password by touching the password menu. The default username is SDCARD and the default Workgroup is WORKGROUP. You can leave it that way or change ...
Any android device Cyanogenmod provides you with an option to build your own Cyanogen-build and integrated kernel building. With this you can compile an compatible kernel for your phone with desirable features. Here's a post that walks you through the process. R̲e̲qu̲i̲r̲e̲m̲e̲n̲t̲s̲: Linux machine USB cable familiarity with basic commands For Nexus 5 ...
Seeing that you have 2.2, the easiest solution would be to go to Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Tethering & portable hotspots. There you have an option to enable usb tethering (exactly what you asked for) or, even better try out Portable Wi-fi hotspot. That way you will be able to connect to the internet without connecting the phone via usb, and ...
The original link is dead. I pulled this short guide from way back machine, copied here: With the first few official Pre-Alpha builds of CyanogenMod 7 being released, it’s worth noting that a new feature has been included that allows you to change the hostname on your device from the Settings menu. If you have a supported device, you can get the ...
Firefox Mobile supports HTTP proxies, so whilst it's a different rendering engine you should at least be able to get a feel for how your UI performs on a small touchscreen. Here's how to get to the secret config section - http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/758279 The default browser includes proxy support in Gingerbread (although that doesn't help ...
Some large ISPs/cell providers have been known to be assigning reserved IP addresses (i.e. IP address that does not belong to the private addresses) to devices in their network. Many organizations (government and universities) that participated in the early days of the Internet owned very large blocks of IP address that aren't being used, and their IP ...
This sounds exactly like this, down to ping working but not the browser. His eventual solution is quoted below: Stupid question, but are you editing the file on the handset or just pushing the file that you posted here? The one you posted is in dos format, so it has extra linefeed characters at the end of the line that could confuse a linux ...
Everything I've seen suggests you can only do it if your phone is rooted. Here's a tutorial for those with rooted phones.
While you're on Wifi, have a look in Wi-Fi settings > menu|Advanced. It looks like it's easier when you're on Wifi than when you're on a celular signal (3 or 2.5g).I've found a blog post here that seems to do what your asking, but you may need to have rooted the phone, or at least be comfotable with editing a few system bits and bobs.
This will almost certainly be impossible. Your XBox doesn't have USB drivers for your Android phone.
You have to be rooted and you have to have the kernel module for cifs support. if you have froyo, you also will need slow-work.ko kernel module as well. Once you have those, you can use (shameless plug) Mount Manager, it can handle loading the modules for you automatically and lots of features available for auto mounting when connecting to wifi, and other ...
