    Is there a way to make my rooted gnex a Wi-Fi hotspot that does not use my data plan data? Maybe just wishful thinking. I just want a hotspots for my gtab 7.7 on the road

    No. Wi-Fi hotspot uses your data plan, as you are sharing your phone's data connection with whatever you connect to it.

    Wifi hotspot? Yes that's easy. But if you don't use your data plan where do you think the data will come from in the first place?

    You can use an app like FoxFi (no root needed) but it will use data. No way around it.

    If you can make a hotpot to connect your tablet without using your data plan data, there must be another wifi hotpot, why not connect it with your tablet directly? That is a luxurious dream.
