    I'm not sure what is wrong but if you don't mind using a usb connect, you can try PDAnet from the market.

    Could be caused by a lack of root permissions. Go into the SU app and clear out the permissions and try again. WiFi Tether should prompt you and ask for SU permissions

    I just got this working last nite with easytether from the market. Couldn't access a secure https site so I bought the pro version for $9.95, non rooted droid, winXP service pack3 w/usb. Sure beats $30 bucks for pdaNet, which I couldn't get working at all.

    EDIT. Sorry, just realized you were trying via bluetooth
