Bluetooth or USB tethering to a Focus?

Is there any way to connect to a network via bluetooth or usb tethering on a Focus in the case that wifi networking is unable? (I.E. at a large convention like CES)

Bluetooth/USB Tethering is to share mobile network to other devices.

Since there is no mobile network on Focus, so there is no such feature.

Thanks.

To provide a more stable Demo for larger event (like CES), we suggest developer to use 5G WiFi for environment setup. Theorectically it's more stable than 2.4GHz WiFi.

 

A backup reference but with poor user experience is for Android Device to connect internet via Ethernet cable.

(Ethernet to USB adaptor + OTG USB adaptor (USB Type-C to USB A female adaptor)

NOTE: We don't recommend to use this way since you're demoing a stand-alone VR Headset with more freedoem compared with PCVR so the cable isn't a good show case for this scenario.

Low on your data plan? Want fast speed? One solution is to connect your Android device to an Ethernet cable. Learn More: http://goo.gl/6KAOhd Check out these other videos: ios 9 Emojis on Android https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EJ-29-sRjo Super Smash Bros Meele on Android ...

Thanks for the quick response.

 

I tried using a ethernet to usb adapter but the focus did not seem to recognize it, is there a setting I have to change somewhere inorder to use it?

Yes, we will enable this path on next release Developer ROM.

It's planned to be ready before the end of Oct.

Thanks.
