    First of all, I'm brand new to this stuff so if I make a junior mistake, please don't bash. I rooted my razr maxx a while back, and I just recently tried using wifi tether apps. I used them on my Droid X2 with no issues. But now it seems none of them will even start. Barnacle gives me this: DHCP: Failed to parse 'numbers and letters' for brncl_dhcp_dns2
    Then: Could not set MTU of rmneto: Invalid argument

    Foxfi, Just doesn't work and it tells me to use the bluetooth version(No errors given).

    I've used Pdanet via usb tethering with no problem, but I can't get the wifi tethers to work which is actually what I need. If anyone could help me out, I would appreciate it. Darn these confusing phones :icon_ devil:

    Hello and welcome to the droid forums.. I'm not certain about the hack for wifi tether.. but as far as foxfi.. just go into manage apps, downloaded, foxfi, clear cache, clear data, and force close it...

    Then reboot your phone, and then try it again.. make sure your wifi isn't turned on when you try to initiate foxfi, or else it won't work... it'll turn wifi on itself once it starts.

    Thanks for the reply. I did this, and it got passed the error I got before, but now when I try to connect to the foxfi network from my computer it just sits for a few minutes, then says "Unidentified network" and won't load anything.

    Try deleting the app.. reinstall it. Rename the hot spot. And make sure not to mess with the hash code on it.. set a password.. it works for some, but not others..

    Tried this, data connection drops everytime I try to start the hotspot. Then it gives me original error.

    Have you tried hacking the stock moto hotspot app??? Search on google for this method, it uses SQLite which is 2-3 bucks on google play.
