Sorry for the confusion, Tidder. I mentioned that in my initial post but was not clear that the Windows tablet was a priority, as I wasn't sure myself at that point. I feel kind of foolish for not doing a better job of researching RDP options and functionality!

I actually would like to sell the two of mine.
Both new (one is unopened, another is open box - only played with it for a couple of hours).
Both have English / DD-WRT preinstalled.
$25/each incl fast shipping from USA.
or @45 for both (incl shipping)
Will ship to Cont. USA only.

I may be interested in them. If you still have them by the time I get mine, and I actually like mine, I'll take yours too. :p

one problem you will run in is the video lag on playback, and i don't know if RDP is the best choice for that task.
for linux users there is spice, which is optimized for video playback. (http://spice-space.org/)
I'm working on getting an android tablet ( for the moment testing with my android phone) in my car as frontscreen. I have a ubuntu running pc with mobile internet and wifi in my trunk. GPS ( usb receiver and Igo8 ) Music is played by xbmc. I can remote my xbmc with the yatse app on my phone ( keeping the good sound output from the pc) but i would get my 3G internet connection shared over the wifi to the tablet/phone. My pci card is no Master-Mode capable and ad-hoc is not possible for ( non-rooted) androids.
I have a spare router but I can not get in the right setup. I was asking for this matter on AskUbuntu but my question seems rather difficult to understand ( for non car-pc minded people I guess). I made a schematic to explain this better and as I though of looking here I stumbled on this thread.
This is the setup I'm trying to get : Attachment 68632
It seems to me you're not having trouble in setting up a spare router or access point as a local wifi broadcaster ? How can it be done
( I spend a lot of time reading about networking in linux but every attempt was in vane. Nothing works. )
Any opinion is welcome
Sorry if I scared somebody of this topic. :yield:
If this isn't the place where I should put this question please give me a hint where I could get some help regarding my problem.
Any help is always welcome.
Probably just need to start your own thread instead of hijacking this one. I'm guessing nobody is responding to your question because this thread is talking about a touchscreen tablet as a monitor. My quick suggestion to you would be to get a better supported wifi card so you can use it as an AP or wireless router, forget ad-hoc completely.
Didn't mean to hijacking this thread. It seem to me it was the only thread that came close to my issue.
What's the use of a second monitor if you don't use all the capacities of that screen ? If it's just to mirror, one just takes a second VGA screen. The reason I would take a tablet is the nice touch screen and all of the applications coming with it, along with an other OS running.
Is'nt this what this thread is about ?
But this only works if you optimize the connectivity. This is where my problem comes in.
Maybe better take my replies of this thread.
I'll try to get other hardware and describe my issue in an other way, probably in an other thread.
Yeah, start a new thread and further explain what it is you're trying to accomplish. PM me when you got one going and I'll clean up this thread. Normally I'd just split it off and start a new one for you but this case seems a bit more complex. Explain yourself fully in your thread, go into some crazy detail if you can.
