Finally took the plunge and rooted. I am trying to establish wifi tethering using barnacle since it doesn't require any special kernel. I'm not running a custom rom. Long story short, the website says for the Droid running vanilla 2.2, you need to check the box for "WPA skip_supplicant". It also says that "WEP must be set at 13 ascii or 26 hex keys in this mode".
I have no idea what that last statement means. can anyone help? Thanks for any help.
Update: Houston, we now have Mobile hot spot. How copy? Over.
