Create a local WiFi hotspot for testing using connectify.me

We took delivery of the new iOS devices for mobile testing. And in order to activate them, you need to connect over Wi-Fi But they wouldn’t connect to the Wi-Fi network during the activation wizard.

FAQ: What to do when things go wrong - first things first?

Things might go wrong when you follow online instructions, or tutorials you see on this blog or others. Your setup might not be the same as mine, you might not notice that some of the earlier steps have failed. When things go wrong, drop down to the command line and make sure that the basics work: mvn -v javac -version In your project folder make sure that “mvn clean” works without error.
