    Will I get charged to use the 3G Mobile hot spot? I have tried to use the wireless tether, but the 3G goes go and out.

    I've had a few problems with wifi tether, but it would just stop transferring data. What app are you using for wifi tether?

    its the most recent update. to the one on the market.
    As for the 3g In and Out does this only happen when using the Wifi tether app that you get intermittent 3G signal?

    That's strange.
    Do you have to stop and restart the tether connection to get it working for a while befor it goes dead again?

    I'll be on my laptop and doing my business. Then I notice that the connection gets slow, I look at my phone and the 3G icon in the notification bar will not be there. Then it will appear and go out again.

    Pda net and easy tether pretty much work flawlessly. I would just like to use wireless more. Especially since I will be getting an android tablet for Christmas:)

    Its not the 3g connection. its the tether connection. i just kept trying until i finally got a solid connection that did not stop. This happened on both my Droid and Droid X last month.
    I never used the update but it should help. Try it first.

    FYI you cant tether one android device to another. Thats what Ive heard i believe it has to do with the ad-hoc connection. Sorry

    You can mod the wpa_supplicant to accept adhoc connections.

    Wish there was a way to make wifi tether work in ap though. It would make life so much easier.

    Ya it does suck you cant tether to PS3. I live in the middle of no where and my only internet now is through :motdroidhoriz:. Before we had 26.4kbps dial up :icon_evil:. Anyways, not sure if you knew this but you can connect to the internet with your PS3 through a Windows computer. Heres a short video.





    To bad the updates are over 150mbs. Takes forever to download and Id really like to see how GT5 is online. >_<

    Ya id like to know what it includes before I dl it. I know there's some leaked roms. And it seems a good number of people have had problems with their apps. Have you tried the wireless app on the d2g? I may just connect through my computer, its simple enough...
