    wireless tether only local, no internet

    Well I know this is probably simple but I can't figure it out. I'm using wireless tether with wep and when I hook up (all goes well btw) I oonly am able to connect to local. No internet. I am running windows vista and I'm sure I need to change a setting but I don't know what it is. Can someone shed some light for me.

    Every time I used to use the Wireless Tether for Root Users app, I literally didn't have to do or change anything....I just turned it on on my Droid, and then there it was on my computer like magic....

    So I mean I have no idea what would have to be messed with or changed.....

    I have this exact problem. Later today, I'm going to uninstall the Wifi for Root app and reload it. Then do the Tiwlan patch and see if any of that helps. I've read every post I can find about Wifi/tethering and found nothing relevant to this problem. I don't even use/need tethering, it just makes me nuts when something will not work the way it's supposed to.

    Back when this was first released, I had to mess with the settings before I was able to connect. I changed the broadcast name and maybe the channel (can't remember now) and that kick-started it.

    Thanks. I'm going to fool with this stuff shortly (I actually have a little real work to get out of the way first) My hunch is that my settings are wrong. It may be the new Windows 7 laptop settings??

    I am using vista on a laptop but it was setup to be uphgraded to win 7 when I got it. I have had the same local only connection problem with my router at times and I think I had to reset the ip address for the router but I dunno if that would help or. If it is even possible. If anyone finds a fix please post as I don't have any internet except my droid when I am at my new place ande can't afford it.(broke college student)lol please help if anyone gets this figured out.

    Feel free to flame me for this but what's the point of wifi tether? I'm trying to figure out why I wouldn't just connect my laptop to the wifi.

    When you don't have access to the internet, you can connect your laptop (or any wifi capable device) to the Droid and use it's 3G connection...

    No sh it? Huh. Well then, that's extremely useful. I was thinking it only worked with a wifi connection. So, basically, it's wireless Pdanet?
