    Has any one figured out if it is possible to set up wireless tether as an access point (infrastructure mode) instead of ad-hoc (peer to peer)?
    The reason I am asking is because many devices will not connect to an ad-hoc connection. It works on the 2.2 Nexus One this way already but different hardware may come into play also.
    I have tried the newest version of Wireless Tether which is supposed to support it but still no luck.

    Thank you for any input.

    Probably not happening

    I too have had this same issue.

    I wanted to tether my $99 HP Touchpad with my first gen motorola droid.... sadly the touchpad wont recognize adhoc networks

    I tried the newest build of wireless tether like you guys did... still nothing.

    The problem is the chipset.

    To use infrastructure mode in wifi tethering you must have a device with a Broadcom BCM4329 or greater.

    My next challenge might be to install preware on my Touchpad as ive read that there is a fix to this adhoc issue... not too sure how in depth id like to get with homebrewing my WebOS device since Cyanogenmod 7 will soon be available to flash onto my HP Touchpad device!

    I cannot wait till ive got android running on there... its gonna be sick!
