    I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab today and as suspected, I am unable to use the rooted tether from my Droid X for the Galaxy Tab. As far as I'm aware, no other android device has been able to connect to my Droid X through it's tether and I was hoping this would be different. I've heard it has something to do with Ad-Hoc mode not being read on Android but if someone can please help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Funny thing is, I sold myiPad today which worked perfectly with my tether. However, I was rooting for an android tablet and apparently this is its biggest flaw unless someone knows a solution.

    Galaxy and Incredible Tether issues

    I'm having the same problem to with tethering my new Galaxy to my Incredible (Rooted) with 2.1. I've also tried blue tooth...althought it will pair, it won't connect.

    I really don't want to pay the $20 per Gig data plan every month.

    Any ideas? Do I need to Root the Galaxy also?

    I was pretty confident that it would fail to tether due to the adhoc connection. That is why I ended up buying an iPad a couple months ago. Tether works perfectly on it.

    I appreciate the input about the adhoc network...but I'm looking for the solution for the Galaxy and making the Android work. iPad doesn't intrest me in the least...no more money to Steve Jobs! I've had the iPhone and had to "jailbrake" just to get Jobs to allow me to tether.

    Does anyone know if 2.3 or the future 3.0 software will have the capabilities or has anyone "rooted" the galaxy yet? Does it work?

    Thanks!

    Dont sweat..there's an EASY fix for this with DX...just get the team black hat app in market. Go to "install 3g hotspot "inside the app...install the zip it provides in the t.b.h. folder on your SD card with rom manager...turn on 3g hotspot and your all set!...now if I only had a Droid x.......

    Does this work with the D1?

    Does the Tab need to be rooted?

    Does the app need to be installed on the phone or the Tab?

    Thanks! :)

    I just downloaded the app on my D1 and I dont see anything close to "install 3G hotspot" inside the app. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Nope...I'm in the same boat as you buddy,our d1's aren't able to use an infrastructure tether because of kernel limitations...but seeing as how the source code for the tab was already released yesterday(way sooner than I expected) we should see a rom up in days...that should fix the tether issue because most roms I've used have the wpa_supplicant fix included...basically its what allows my girls dx to see my d1's tether on almost any rom she runs...xda also has the fix in an update.zip form, but I'm not gonna try it til we have CW recovery or the like....just sit tight for a bit...the tab is real new and there's already a STRONG community on it...I sold my ipad for It and DON'T regret it one bit!!!

    Sounds good...I know it will be out soon!

    BTW, where is this strong community...on other forum website? Certainly isn't here.
