Default Broadcasting WiFi signal from hardwired laptop + 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Hey Folks,

I'm here in Canada sharing my hard-wired internet connection(via Ethernet) over wifi with a MacBook and a 8320. My BB recognizes the network, but always fails to connect (W002: Wi-Fi Connection Failed). Is there a crucial step I'm missing to make this work?

Would be great to make those free VOIP calls to the states, but there's no WiFi at this hotel so I was hoping to use a WiFi network that I create with my laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
