Hi, Anyone is facing issues connecting via hotspot the N9 and Jolla? I have no problems between N9 and N8 but it seems to be my Jolla doesn't find the tethered network. Tried Android /Jolla and got the same issue however Android works with Harmattan WindowsPhone 8 and Symbian^3. Anyway a reset could resolve, but please if you notice the same issue and get it fixed be kind to advice.I am on Thanks

What is the Android release and device here? I have tried Nexus 4 running Android 4.4 (CM11) and it works.

Just tried out (Jolla and N9) and confirming what you said. Jolla does not see it.

The connection manager does not support ad-hoc networks, which is the way N9 does hotspots.

Hi guys,

@Jukka I have reset the Jolla and now it is working correctly. Android version is 2.2 (this htc device is working well with N9, N8 and Lumia920, so Android is not the issue). After downgrading to the Jolla was able to connect to Android. This morning I have updated to and tested the hotspot connection to Android (Android is the data source in this case), now it's working. Case closed
