    WiFi Tether working?

    Since being unlocked and perm rooted, has anyone gotten WiFi Tether or Barnacle WiFi Tether working? I tried both and it seems to work on my phone, but when I go to connect to either my laptop just hangs while trying to connect.

    wifi tether

    Wifi Tether works fine on mine. Make sure you enable MSS Clamping and Routing Fix in the settings.

    It worked fine for me. I included it in the batch script I hacked together from a bunch of scripts I found over the past day or so.

    I didn't have to touch the MSS clamp option, but did have to tick the router fix option. Also, I was only able to connect via AdHoc, encryption didn't seem to work (couldnt find my SSID when it was enabled), and from what I could tell it still only used 3G speeds instead of 4G. Anyone else have a different experience?

    I've got the same problem here. I got speed test to open, ping, and then it was showing 3 megs and hung there and gave me a network error before the test could finish. I'm also having the same issue with not being able to get infrastrizzle. Only ad-hoc works. Seems like verizon still has something locked out. I had the same problem back when I rooted my DroidX too.

    Yeah, speedtest gave me about 3-4Mbps down and about .5Mbps up (110 ping) while tethered with lots of spikes. However, when I run it from the phone with tethering turned off I'm getting about 5-8x that over 4g. I wonder if wireless tether just needs to be updated for the phone/network.

    Confirmed. Only AD-Hoc. works well for laptops and such, but most mobile devices wont see ad-hoc or at least in my experience.

    Zt-180 adhoc switcher will change that. Most tablets and some phone only see an infrastructure mode connection, with zt-180 on the device you wanna tether to you can switch which mode its in. Its experimental and requires root, but it works for me.

    Odd I have never been prompted for the Verizon service on barnacle. Using the stock tether I have but then I rooted.

    Ok, so I rooted then installed barnacle. Is that right, nothing else I need to do?
