Seems that worked. Partially.
Now I can see the speaker hotspot in windows, but still not in the iphone.
In windows, I could access the WebGUI and connect the Air to a temporary network (neighbor). But then it will not appear in my phone.
Then, I reset again, and let the hotspot to go again, and the phone does not see the network, but inmediatelly recognize it as an Airplay, and when connecting to "a network" it fails.. it actually went connecting to all the networks my phone was picking up until it failed...
I will keep troubleshooting tomorrow. Thanks for the hint on the FAT32. I still have Win7 installed (yes, I know).
BTW, the Air have never flashed its red light "out of network" during this whole process, incl. the many factory resets. What could that mean?
