-JoikuSpot might also work with E60 with new hardware version. With older hardware the JoikuSpot is created, but for unknown reason the connection to internet is disconnected after 10 seconds. If you manage to successfully use JoikuSpot with E60, please let us know. Please also deliver your hardware version, you can get it with *#0000#

-JoikuSpot has been tested successfully with several laptops: Fujitsu-Siemens, Apple Macbook, Dell, HP and new IBM models seem to work well. With older IBM laptops (at least T40P) the connection is not working. The reason behind is the WLAN chipset that the older IBM series is using.

-HP iPAQ rx3715 as a roaming device has been reported to have some interoperability problems. Connection between Nokia N95 as JoikuSpot and iPAQ is set ok, but the browser is working. If you manage to use iPAQ succesfully, please let us know.
