Nexus 7 won't connect to WiFi hotspot issue

I have turned my Verizon HTC Rezound phone into the Mobile Hotspot using FoxFi, but I can't get Nexus 7 to connect. The N7 shows it is secured to VZW hotspot network with WPA2. After I type the password on both device, the tablet just hangs on obtaining IP address without Internet.

I think I need to take them both to Verizon to make it working. My friend is using a Verizon MiFi 4510 hotspot with no issues. His N7 does connect to it and works fine.

Update: Changing the network's security settings from WPA to WEP on the router will fix the issues. Check the default gateway in your computer, enter it in web browser into the router configuration. Then you can do that from the WiFi security options.


  1. Change security to WEP on your hotspot device it does the trick

  2. Thks a lot yr advise is helpful
