    Awesome, works for me! Tried it with my OG Droid and it worked perfect. Now I'll need to test it out and my laptop and tablet.

    If anyone is concerned with legal issues here... Apparently a formal complaint has already been filed with the FCC over Verizon "illegal" restriction of use on 4G networks. When Verizon (and others) bought rights to claim the spectrum it came with limitations. One of those was a restriction to not impose limits on devices and applications that use the data on the user end. Read more here...

    Is the Wireless tether app running ad-hoc or infrastructure? On the D1 it ran ad-hoc but on the GN it may be infrastructure. Haven't bothered to check yet myself. My laptop will do either.
    My first smartphone was a Droid 1. Then I found the Nexus... Galaxy Nexus LTE unlocked & rooted...

    Hmmmmm, I am able to tether gnex to stock og droid, but not to my rom'ed og droid... must be something corrupted on it. It would attempt to connect but then drop after authentication.

    Also, there is a setting on the wireless tether app for auto, master, or ad hoc... I assume this is the question everyone is asking about. Seems we have a choice... or is this something else?

    I was able to tether the stock droid using the master setting.

    That would be infrastructure (master setting in wireless tether app on the Galaxy Nexus)! The D1 would only offer up ad-hoc mode using wireless tether app (or any app for that matter, limitation with the hardware and wireless driver). Infrastructure mode can be used as a wireless source for any wireless device.
