    Hello,

    So I've rooted my droid for the purpose of using it to generate a wifi hotspot in my apt. So far it's been working great, I've been using the barnacle app for this purpose. Generating an unsecured signal both my pc and my iPad connected without any problems.

    I now want to secure the connection and whenever I enable the password, my iPad connects but the browser doesn't load any pages.

    Any idea what the problem may be?

    Thanks

    Use wifi tether. I believe you can do what you're asking with it.

    Could you give me the link to that app please? I don't see it in the market.

    Thanks
