I have a Nokia N8 as well and looked in vain for something like tethering on the phone itself. My Sony Android had such a feature. I looked for mobile hotspot...nothing.
Now I know I had to look for a way to create an new obile broadband connection on the PC.

I know the way to do it in Linux Voyager X2 (combi Ubuntu-Debian).
Itś very easy.
Just plug the N8 in via USB cable.
Evt. you have to unlock your phone. I did, before Linux / Windows actually recognises the phone.
Than, you go to Network Manager of search for Network Connections.
Choose Add  / New Mobile Broadband
Choose provider and Create and that´s it.
Evt. you have to Enable Mobile Broadband ( in my case T-Mobile)
Otherwise you can pick your newly created mobile broadband from the dropdown menu.

Happy surfing, Peer

lm just curious that maybe there is a mismatch on authentication protocols between your android device and your joikuspot.

Just verify that if joikuspot is using WEP authentication, and you android devices using WPA then its not going to work.

Yes this is possible. (assuming you are using Windows 8.1 or later) You just need to set up the ad-hoc connection first through your pc. Remember to use the exact name for this ad-hoc as the one for the Joikuspot .Such that whenever you wish to connect you first initiate the ad hoc connection first then connect to your Joikuspot.

However if it's windows 8.0 or earlier is simple as your connect directly to Joikuspot without initiating an ad-hoc connection first. There is a tool online called *Ad-hoc Network* that automates the whole process.

hope this helps
