I needed some way to interact between my desktop and my android phone (Cynaogen). I got a router from my friend. To be clear, its not about getting access to internet, I just want to establish LAN connection between by desktop and Android phone.

By logging into the router, I've configured "Wireless Network" to following settings (advanced view).

Problem is even though XYZ wifi network is shown in available networks in Android phone, after entering the password, status is turning to Saved and after a while it says Authentication Problem. I tried rebooting the router, forgetting the network and try connecting again in my phone. I tried connecting using my friend's phone (kitkat 4.4) too. But still it isn't connecting.

To make sure MyDslModem does not transmit on illegal frequencies, you must set where you are in the world.

  • It looks like a modem config issue related to wifi encryption setting. Do you have access to web interface for this modem?
