If you named your wireless "Bobs Wireless" does that name show up when you look for available networks on the IPad or notebook.

I would troubleshoot with the PC.. when you make the connection are you getting ip address, subnet, gateway and DNS settings?

You can check by doing an ipconfig /all and looking at the wireless settings part.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Well it is easier to troubleshoot with the notebook..

Connect to the wireless HTC.. then open a command prompt (Run -> CMD -> OK) and type in
ipconfig /all

Copy that information then post it back here..

The 169 address states you are not getting a DHCP address..

Which program are you using and are there any settings for DHCP?  The carrier might have blocked this function.

Your devices are making the connection then asking for an IP address from the router (phone in this case) and the phone is not returning an address.  When you do not get an IP address you get one of those 169.x.x.x type numbers.  So the phone has to issue a useable IP for the notebook & ipad to work.  Now the wifi router program might have came with the phone but the carrier has had the phone provider disable it functions.. Here Sprint wants to charge an extra $20 a month to enable the feature.

You might need a program like this to make it work.  http://global.wmwifirouter.com/consumer/

Not if the provider has locked it down.. You could call and ask but in my experience they want you to pay extra for the option.
