    Wifi Tether Issues

    I have been having wifi tether problems in BB 0.6.2

    I enable wifi tether, then connect on my laptop, but only about 1/2 of the time does my Droid actually vibrate and notify me that a connection had been made. And then only 1/2 of the time does the internet connection actually run.

    After continuous restarts, it eventually starts working, but why is it being so finicky?

    Any suggestions?

    I was having similar issues with Wireless Tether for Root Users. I tried barnacle tether from the market and it seems to work better now.

    Iv'e been able to tether wi-fi using the Google wi-fi tether app to anything except my Linux machine since I got my Droid. My windows machine, other people's phones... just not my Linux (Ububtu) machine.

    The only way to tether to it is USB.

    Thanks, I tried Barnacle and it seems to be better, still some slowdowns though where I needed to reload pages a few times.

    I really want to get wifi tether working perfectly as I am in the market for a tablet (possibly Xoom) and want to be able to tether it to my droid sans issues.
