I have an iPhone 5 (iOS 6.1.1) and I installed Viber messenger (version 188.8.131.52) which enables you to make phone calls over the internet. The messenger works perfectly when I use a wireless router to connect to the internet (which I don't have at home) but when I connect to my Windows XP ad-hoc network, I can't make phone calls. the call is dropped after 3 to 4 seconds and I can't receive calls either. This only happens on my ad-hoc network.
- The computer connects to the internet through 3G modem
- I tried updating to the latest version of Viber (2.3.1) from apple but no good
- My friend has an older iPhone (probably 3G or 4) and he has the same exact version of Viber. When he tries to use my ad-hoc network, it works and he can call and receive calls.
- I can't use my 3G sim card directly on my iPhone, I have to go through the ad-hoc network.
What could be the problem and solution to this dilemma?
