AirDroid sharing w/out WiFi
I was at Silver Lake last week with my wife and my good friend. It was first time I was without wireless connection for more than couple of hours. It was no problem as I have 3G connection, but my friend wanted to share some multimedia files with me and for some reason Bluetooth wasn’t working (as usual, it says everything is okay but won’t accept files) so I came up with a crazy idea which actually worked: I have tethered my 3G connection with him, making my phone Wi-Fi Access Point. Once he connected to my wireless network I have started Airdroid and gave him my local (access point) IP address which, in most cases, should be 192.168.43.1
