    wifi Tether on Samsung Fascinate

    Just got my fascinate yesterday after my droid battery charging circuit failed. I have the warranty replacement coming in a few days and will be selling the droid if anyone knows who might want one.

    Anyway, I rooted the fascinate successfully but when I run wifi tether with root control, it says it is running but I do not see the ad hoc solution from my laptop.

    Any ideas?

    You have to use a different version.

    I downloaded and then just installed with astro. I did have to remove the one I downloaded from the market first.

    Ok..I did the same thing. How exactly do I use it? This is what I did, but it would never connect to my phone. I opened up Wireless Tether, and reset a couple of the settings such as the SSID, Passphrase, and Access Control. I then started tethering. I looked at the wireless networks on my computer and phone my phone. When I click to connect it, I put in the passphrase when my computer asked for it, and then it just sits and tries and tries to connect, but never does. Am I doing something wrong?

    Did you make sure you've got the right version?

    I downloaded from this thread. When I check the about in wireless tether, it says 2.0.5-pre9. Correct one?

    Yup, that's the right one. Try it without the security settings. That's how I use it.
