    So, I rooted my droid
    I have the *****in bagle 2.0.5 rom and it came with wifi tether.
    So heres the issue. I connected to to the internet through my phone just fine. When i disconnected that connection and tried to connect my PC back to my regular home wireless network IT DOES NOT WORK. I can no longer connnect to the internet on my computer..only my phone! I know tihs issue is more of a computer issue, but it happened because of the tethering. Does anybody know why? pleaaasse take a minute to help, its annoying and i don't want to have to reinstall everything on my computer

    restart your computer and router

    does it appear as a wireless network? or not at all?

    try connecting to the router using ur droid over wifi - then youll be able to see if its the pc or the router

    Thanks for the quick response.
    Well the problem is every other computer in my house can connect to the router wirelessly still. Ever since I connected my computer to my phone I can't ever connect back to my home network. Does tethering mess with your computer configurations or something? My phone can even get on my home wifi. but my computer won't anymore.

    Did you change any connection settings when you were trying to set up tethering?

    Also, you should get rid of 2.0.5
    DroidMod (Sholes) has said the kernal is unsafe. Upgrade to either 2.0.6 or DM1.0

    Only suggestion I can offer Turn off your wireless router and the Internet modem as well. Pull the plug on both devices for at least 30 seconds. That will reset both.

    Sholes has changed their name to DroidMod. SMUpdater is now DMUpdater.

    Their new website is DroidMod - Everything Droid doesn't, DroidMod does.

    You can download the new version of DMUpdater from their website, it's not on the market yet. DMUpdater allows you access to their newest version of the "formally Sholes" ROM, DM1.0

    Give me a minute and I'll post a direct download link for 2.0.6 for anyone that might want it

    Im having the opposite problem w/ DM1.0, i was running 2.0.2 and the only issue i had w/ the wifi tether was extreme heat(and i mean to where it would cause a burn if put to flesh). Ill keep getting an unable to connect message, then when trying to connect back my regular wifi connection I get same issue then have to restart computer.

    It is exactly the same program, just a different name.

    Here is a link for the .apk
    http://downloads.droidmod.org/dmupdater-10.apk

    I'm still working on uploading just the 2.0.6 ROM but you can get the newer DM1.0 ROM through the phone app in the link I provided above.

    Also, be sure to check out their new website, they have a forum now (very active) for help and support with their ROMs.

    Did you name your phone SSID the same as your router SSID? I suppose that could mess with the saved connection settings on your computer.

    That link will give you the app that is the new SMUpdater. Just save it to your SD and install it.

    hmm...well I went to the website and I now have the new DM1.0 rom
    BUT i keep hearing about this 2.0.6 and it does sound more appealing(since 1.0 doesnt have smoked glass) I thought if i used the DMupdater it would give me the 2.0.6 as a choice also. So how do I get 2.0.6 with the link you posted? half-noob here lol
