    Rooted Wireless Tether Access Control Problems

    So my phone is rooted and running wireless tether and everything is working fine. I'm trying to use access control and I can't figure out how to make it work. I have it enabled, however it allows all connections through. From what I can read about it, it's supposed to ask for permission for a device trying to connect. Mine just allows all connections through. Please help me.

    Did you set a password for the other devices to connect with?? I'm not sure if that would work though but you can try

    everything works fine if i have wep on, but for some reason i can't set my netbook running windows starter to remember the network. so i have to type in the password every time i connect. supppper annoying when i'm at work. so i was trying to use access control so it would just allow connections to my netbook. i don't want to leave my tether unsecured at work so i'm trying to find a solution.

    it's weird too because the connections show up in red and say unauthorized, but they can still connect to the internet. ughhhhh

    huh.....that is weird, maybe something having to do with Windows Starter??? I know Starter is a joke!! lol I have a netbook that came with Starter, and ended up getting a bootlegged copy of Ultimate and it works fine

    I really don't know then honestly....maybe try googling the app Wireless Tether for Root Users, there's a guide somewhere on it for devs that need it

    And too, if your using an older ROM that had the Tethering app on it, I know that it wasn't working properly in exactly the areas your talking about....Access Control

    The newer ROMs like BB 0.7.4 and Sholes ROM have these problems fixed and those features work properly.....if thats the case (if you're using an older ROM or something)
