Yes I have just read it now, Thanks! ;)

I was already starting to conclude the same... Why not try the wire or deleting the password all together...
I guess I just can't accept it works perfectly at two systems like this, and then not on my newest addition.

But I am getting quite warm to try that now... :mrgreen:

And yes of course... the USB mode works instantly now that I've come to try... :roll:
At least I can access the internet now running SolydK :D

Still keep finding it all very odd with the hotspot thing though...

The guy using Bodhi linux in the aforementioned thread, bennypr0fane, has been active on this forum too, maybe he sees it if you pm him (Last active: 30 Jun 2016 22:04). He might have figured something out in the meantime, who knows.

I strongly guess it's the same person, with a nick like that ...

Thanks for the tips and input :) Both you Zill and Ilu,

For the time being I'll just do with the wire.
Bugger for me then, no walking around the cabin with the phone while being connected to my computer. :x

Anyway I think I'll be on the outlook for passing, second hand N9's or other alternative types of phones very soon as my N900 will not last much longer in it's current condition :roll: ( Screen issues getting worse and worse )

Thanks guys!

to clarify some stuffs : no. KDE is using plasma-nm which specifically build for KDE. as for network-manager-gnome, if you want to use WEP (or any wifi security stuff), you need to make sure that pinentry-gnome3 is installed. after the profile is created (i.e: right click on network applet, edit connection), you'll also need to make sure that the security method and the password is matched (WEP). I don't have any WEP capable device so I can't test it but my system works well with WPA2.

another workaround would be disable the security system on the phone. it's not pretty solution but at least it's work. in my phone (an android) I can restrict the number of connection and/or block other mac address so only my system could connect to my phone. I see no need to use password with my current setup.
