A while ago, I had a tablet (Coby Kyros MID9742), that got shelved when the screen quit (half of the area of the touchscreen won't recognize touches, split among 2 sections).
I am trying to repurpose the tablet for use as a video player via HDMI cable to projector, with my old phone (Galaxy S, no problems) as a remote. I have that part worked out, using a 3rd party app.
But the main problem is getting the tablet to connect to WiFi to use the remote software. The screen is broken in such a way that the center strip (top to bottom in portrait mode) cannot recognize touches, and I cannot put in the WiFi password that I need to. The tablet does not know the password for the WiFi.
Is there some way that I can force the tablet to connect to an encrypted WiFi using my PC, via USB cable? The tablet is rooted, but I have not flashed a custom rom onto it.
Also, is there some way that I can force WiFi to turn on at startup, and automatically connect to specified network?
If there is any more information I need to add, please say so in the comments.
