Default use playbook to make win7 crash ?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone like to try out if he is also able to crash windows7 sp1 using the playbook when the playbook tries to connect to the windows7 built in hotspot ?

For me, this works all the time. It might be my custom hardware, but, my software installed is pretty standard.

Receipe to reproduce:
Use a playbook, v.
Add a pc/notebook (dell E4310 in my case, with intel 6300AGN adapter, win7 pro, 64bit, built in dell wireless wwan)

Now, enable the wifi hotspot of windows7:
Run as administrator:
netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=mobilehotspot key=wpa2secretkey
netsh wlan start hostednetwork

(Make sure your wpa2 secret is long enough, otherwise the command will fail - 10 chars or more should be enough)

I guess, it does not matter if you use the 3g network or, any other, but after this, go into the properties of the wwan card, and enable internet sharing to the microsoft virtual wifi adapter.

Now, try to connect with the playbook to the virtual wifi.
For me, connection works, but, after about 10seconds windows crashes with a 0x000000d1 bsod. If I use my blackberry 9700, everything is fine.

Anyone like to try if he can confirm this on his hardware?

If this really is not a singular problem with my hardware, of course the playbook is not the one to blaim, but, microsoft instead. Under no circumstances Windows should crash if some client connects to the WiFi hotspot.
