    Does, or has, the built in wireless tether ever worked on any miui builds?

    And yes I realize there is a free app that works great. But I hate adding an app, when its built in. Thanks

    Thats why I was asking. I thought it was maybe me, so I thought I would ask and see if anyone else had it working.

    The Motorola Droid does not have the hardware necessary to do AP (Access Point) tethering. Wi-Fi Tether for Root Users is the only work-around permitting Droid users to create Ad-Hoc connections and share it's network that way.

    Unless the Chinese MIUI Devs decide to directly make a Droid port and re-code the whole Wi-Fi tethering options in the settings menu to work by creating Ad-Hoc connections by way of Root, then it will most likely never work from the built in settings page.

    As far as the MIUI Devs are concerned, this really isn't an issue as the Milestone did come packed with the necessary hardware to create AP tethering.

    AP (infrastructure mode) is not possible with our tiwlan driver. As far as i know its only possible on some bcm_XXXX(HTC devices) chipsets. so Ad-Hoc is all we have.
