    I rooted my Droid X2 just to see if i could get this tethering to work. So far i tried barnacle, Wireless Tether, and WiFi Tether, with no luck. The network shows up on my laptop with all 3 of them but my laptop is unable to connect.

    Anyone get tethering working successfully on there Droid X2? (and no im not going to pay for it...just so that's not brought up)

    I got wireless tether to work no problem. You just can't have access control due to the kernel. Set up a password to control access.

    Thanks for the reply. I have a few questions

    What app are you using?

    When you say set up a password to control access, you mean go into the settings of the app?? or did i miss it?

    While in the Wireless Tether App i enable wifi-encryption and setup a password, but my laptop still wont connect. The transmit power is set at disabled to and my laptop still see's it.

    I'm using the old "wireless tether" app that was on the market before Verizon blocked it. You can probably find it on 4shared.

    As far as the password goes, that's an in app setting.
