    I'm just wondering whether anyone has had any luck using the Moto Droid as a WiFi hotspot in AP mode rather than Ad-hoc. In other words, like a traditional hotspot created by a traditional router.

    Currently, I'm rooted and using barnacle, which works great, but only as an ad-hoc network.

    I know there has been other discussion on this, but I had trouble finding a definitive answer using the search function.

    Thanks!! dancedroid

    Are you looking to use an app? I am guessing you are rooted right?

    yup, rooted running FRG22D. An app is what I had in mind, yup. I use Tether right now for USB tethering, which works very well, and Tether even claims that it somehow doesn't violate the TOS, but I would like to set up WiFi as an access point rather than Ad-Hoc, because some devices have issues with Ad-Hoc.

    When I used the first one, I got the stupid sign-up-for-Verizon-tethering web page.

    I will give it another shot--maybe I tried a different apk or some such. Thanks for the advice!

    Well, I downloaded them again, and there seems to be no problem. Must have just been the version I tried (which was quite some time ago).

    Thanks again for the quick help.
