iPhone iOS 5 Mobile Hotspot Breaks Cradlepoint WAW and Nexaira BC2 Tethering



Apple recently release iOS5 for the Apple iPhone 4S, 4, 3GS as well as iPad 1,2 and third/forth generation iPods. This software adds over 200 new features to the device like improved notifications and Siri on the iPhone 4S, but breaks compatibility for users tethering to routers. Before the mobile hotspot craze, the Nexaira BC2 was the only option to connect your iPhone to share connectivity with multiple users. When Apple released an update that allowed the mobile hotspot feature, Cradlepoint's WiFi as WAN feature became a popular choice for people looking for failover or a simple backup. However, as of iOS 5 neither the Nexaira BC2 or ANY Cradlepoint NetBSD routers will work tethered or by WiFi.
