    Root the xoom so it will recognize ad -hoc network. Did it to my xoom and charge, no flying wireless on 4g.

    OK but another question, how do u backup data from apps without root? Even though SD card doesn't work, I can use online backup or dropbox...but I just don't know how?

    If the Moto Droid i already rooted, have you tried to tether thru Bluetooth? I tether thru my Droid X and Xoom with bluetooth dial up networking.

    On my droid x I'm using "wireless tether" from the market. Nothing special on the xoom. Found directions on different forum thru google search. The bluetooth is strong enough to video conference on the xoom.

    I am using wireless tether on my rooted Droid X with my wifi Xoom as well. Works great!

    Just stay away from that Gingerbread update.

    wireless tether

    Let me clarify... I use wireless tether on my rooted Droid X to access the internet on my WiFi Xoom via the WiFi on Droid X. There is no Bluetooth involved. Works fantastic.

    Again, just avoid the Gingerbread update on the Droid X.
