    Droid Tether Infrastructure mode

    Hello All,

    I have an OG Droid that I have had since day one (well, replaced 3 times due to faulty screens, but thats unimportant) I am planning on buying the motorola Xoom, the wifi only version, but there is a slight problem. As far as I know, the OG droid can only Wireless Tether using ad-hoc, and other android devices including the Xoom cannon't connect to ad-hoc networks. Is there any way to make the Droid broadcast in infrastructure mode, or any way to make Android connect to an ad-hoc network? (the second one seems unlikely to work on the Xoom, as it is not even released yet, so no one knows) Any help/other app suggestions to use would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
    brock

    Bumping this because I planned on doing the same. The galaxy tab has a fix for this so I'm sure the Xoom will too.

    I don't think it's gonna come until after the software update that will enable the SD card slot. The Xoom was rooted yesterday but I don't think much can't can be done without the SD card slot. I could be wrong though

    Yeah, there's a way to get Android devices to connect to an adhoc network (such as from another Android) but its generally a pain in the ass and must be done on a per device basis. Prolly worth it in the end to kinda "pair" the Xoom to your Droid for tethering. That's what I plan on doing at the end of the summer or with my tax returns. Ha. Clever timing Motorola... ha

    There's a way by using wifi tether through bluetooth...but for some reason, it's not working for me, but others have verified that it works.

    Yes this is the answer we've been looking for. You are the only one I've heard so far that has not gotten it to work.

    Managed to get it working that night. It seems that all I needed to do is update to the latest build and it worked flawlessly.
