Please advise: I want to tether my Xoom (3.2) to an android phone (right now I have a Droid). Iíve read more posts than my brain can deal with and have not found the solution. It may be out there but as I said, there are so many posts dealing with so many phone types, computers (windows based), and android operating systems that my head is spinning.
I had a Toshiba Thrive (3.1) that connected to my Motorola Droid (1) by using PdaNet tablet. This worked well but I returned my Thrive because of GPS problems. I ended up getting a Motorola Xoom (3.2) but PdaNet tablet will not connect. I donít know if it is the result of going from 3.1 to 3.2 or because of some other difference in the Thrive vs the Xoom.
I have tried other (non-root) solutions to connecting my tablet to my Droid (Bluetooth tether). These would not connect.
1) My Droid is through Verizon and it is due for an upgrade soon. Are there newer phones that will act as wifi hotspots (without rooting) and work with my Xoom? If so I will just upgrade to one of these (suggestions??) and be done with it.
2) If I need to root does anyone know of a tried and true solution to tethering a Droid to a Xoom (3.2)?
