JoikuSpot Updated Again – WEP Security Is A Go!


After the stability update a few days ago, as promised, a new version is out that among other things supports WEP security. Thats means that we shall be finally able to turn our WiFi smartphone into a wireless hotspot even in public places without any fear. This version comes with a generous 90 day trial after which it needs to be purchased.

Update: Lasse Maki CEO, Founder JoikuSoft informs us that the lite version will continue to remain free and there will be a premium variant with advanced features later on.

Release notes for JoikuSpot Light Beta 1.2:

-Encryption support with WEP including automatic 128bit key generator
-Battery threshold shutting down the client when battery level is too low (adjustable)
-Default Access point can be set
-Support for secure SSH tunnels with Putty

Screenshots are more after the break.

For those new to JoikuSpot, it  is a free mobile software solution that turns Nokia Smartphones to WLAN HotSpots. JoikuSpot software is installed directly to the phone. When switched on, laptops and iPods can establish instant and fast wireless internet connection via smartphone’s JoikuSpot access point using phone’s own 3G/EDGE/GPRS internet connection. Multiple devices can connect to JoikuSpot in parallel and seamlessly share the same internet connection. JoikuSpot acts thus as an internet gateway to external WLAN devices.

  1. Hi,

    We are going to keep the JoikuSpot Light free also in the future.
    However, we shall introduce a new Premium version bit later and it will have a small payment.
    Naturally Premium will have more advanced features than the free Light version.
