    Are you using the latest? Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Also, I'd like to mention that the wired tether is much, much faster, at least on my phone. YMMV!!

    Also - 'not working' is not nearly descriptive enough for me to help you. What does 'messed up' mean?

    I would love help if anyone knows how it can be fixed?

    Ok. 1 when I start tether my laptop or anything else can't connect to the phone or I get a bad ip address, I have to restart tether over and over till it will give out a good ip address.

    2. After I get connected after about 3 mins I lose the 3G icon on the phone and it breaks my download... The laptop stays connected.. But it slows everything down, the icon comes back after about 30 seconds.

    I saw that the tether app was not included because of "technical" reasons? But I don't know what those are? I was hoping to get tether working again because I'm leaving the on vacation and was hoping on using it? But going back to 4.5 didn't help and I had all of the same issues.

    So I went back to 4.6 and didn't do a restore on my settings and apps this time, after getting done manually I still have all of the same issues?

    It's kind of funny, everything was perfect in 4.5 but after 4.6 I'm pulling my hair out. Everything else is perfect and FAST!

    And I do have the newest version of wireless tether, is there another app I could try.

    My co-worker and I are having the same problem with the device losing it's 3g connectivity. He has an Incredible and I have a Mota Droid. We both have been having our 3g connectivity drop. I've tried Cyanogen 6.0 v2 and Bugless .04 with 2 different kernals from Chevy and nothing has remedied the problem. It's very frustrating....

    I believe this to be entirely on Verizon's end. This didn't start until Froyo started to spread around the internet. All was working just fine just about until the official Froyo started rolling out, and then 3g connectivity just started to die while tethering. I think this is them actively killing unofficial tethering.

    The only tethering app that works for me is PDANet, and I believe that only works because Verizon can't tell if you're tethering or using your phone because of the way PDANet works.

    Man!!! Do I feel special. Verizon's letting me use WiFi Tether!!

    It works perfectly on my phone with Sapphire 1.1 and Wifi Tether for Rooted Users (205'Pre8 Verison) Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    That is one of the exact configurations I have used that DOESN'T work (with the tethering app being quite literally the only app installed). It's obvious that this problem isn't widespread, but I have certainly noticed an increase in people reporting it over the last month.

    I have tried four different ROMs with at least eight different kernels. I have also tried four different tethering apps, ranging from wireless to USB to bluetooth. The only one so far that works is PDANet and like I said, I only believe that works because it essentially masks the tethering (not an intended feature, but a side effect of the way it works)

    Did you try versions other than the pre8? Back a couple (2-3) months ago, my phone would not run the three or four most current versions. I had to run one of the older versions to get tethering to work at all. Since then however the most current versions have worked for me.
