    wifi tether issues

    i have a mnotorola droid running 2.1 rooted rom (4-21) Jrummy's Remix V0.7 - Cyanmod 5.0.6.2 **5 Theme Choices**. the graphics are a little slow, and have thought about finding out how to overclock just a little, but the issue that i am having is that after i installed the formenttioned rom i can get the wifi tether to work. i have made sure that the wifi is on but when i got into the app for the tethering it just says cannot start tethering please try again. dont understand what is going on, the wifi is working when im here at home, but im a truck driver and the wifi tether would be much apperciated and used by me in the rig for my laptop i do have pda net but would rather use wifi if possible. if there is anyone that can help it would be much appreciated, thanks

    If I understand correctly, when you are home your laptop connects to wifi. My sense is that, at home, your computer is connecting to a wifi router and not your phone. I think you need to install a kernel that allows tethering. Typically, the OC kernels support the tethering as well as OC.

    Well the phone says unable to start tethering not the comp. If I need to install a different kernel where I find those at, I'm still learning my way around this forum.

    There are several kernels available. Some popular ones are Chevy, Bekit, and P3Droid. Typically, the rom developers have a link on their sites to these and other kernels.

    I'm rooted so I've not used an OC kernel with an unrooted phone. I'm not sure how to tell you to proceed unless you are rooted.

    .7 comes with a 1.1 overclock kernel, but it does not allow for wifi tethering. I haven't tried any other kernels to figure out which work.

    Moved thread from stock help to hacking section.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    OK I am in a similar boat. I am rooted and have SMoked glass 6. I installed the wifi tether during install. I have OC of 800mhz. The wifi starts my computer see's AndroidTether but whenI choose it, it says unavailable. Been trying since March. Going insane. Advise on what to use that will definitely work. PDAnet gave me hardware issue ". Whatever "android ADB interface" Device not configured correctly, error 1. whatever that means. Thanks
