I created a portable WiFi server to work with my tablet, phone, etc. Got tired of having limited data bandwidth and not micro sd slots.
The PI streams data via ES FileServer to Android devices another another app to the iphone/ipad which stream samba.
My tablets work GREAT! I can hook up and play movies as long as the battery lasts.
My Android razr phone.. not so much. I dont think its the phone becase if I hook up to my home wifi networked NAS via ESFile Server i can stream movies all the way to the end but with the WiFi PI it plays for about 1 to 5 minutes it just disconnects.
(Phone says its still connected but I can no longer access any of the local media)
Makes no sense to me at all.
So I am wondering if there is a setting on the PI like a ping that determines connectivity that can be different on my regular router vs my Pi HotSpot?
Hope that was clear enough. When its all done I can't wait to post a YouTube video on this.
