    Has anyone found a Wifi Tether App that works? I am rooted and can install the tether apps I have found, but when I enable no devices I have can see it. Two laptops, a nook, an ipad.. There isnt even an optoin to hide the SSD so I don't believe that is the issue either.

    Thanks

    Nope, an alternative is PDANet.

    I have gotten Wireless Tether to work, as well as WiFi tether, just had to root the phone using Gingerbread root from the market.

    Lucky you! Would you mind explaining how to get Wireless Tether to work after the phone is rooted? I was under the impression that it was not possible to connect wirelessly without paying Verizon a monthly fee.

    It creates an ad hoc network so your devices must be set up to use ad hoc. I had a bit of trouble but after seting up ad hoc on my pc it worked fine. I use channel 1 at 2415 mhz i think it is.

    And I just got infrastructure working on it too, make sure that the profile is set to Auto and that the setup method is set to Netd (Master) and it should broadcast as an AP

    Tested and working with an Itouch browsing.
