    I downloaded the android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    put it on my sd card and installed it on my phone. I hit the green button and my laptop found the connections. yay thought it was gonna work, I was able to connect to the connection that was created. However no sites load up once i am connected to the wireless connection created? what am i doing wrong? yes i am rooted and i hate that my pdanet will no longer let me connect to https sites (need it for hw at work :mad:)

    what can I do?

    Wireless tethering won't work on the default kernel. I don't really know any more than that.

    Easytether free works fine on my girlfriends unrooted phone and my rooted phone pdanet works too try those they are easier to use. Wifi tether works good on my phone but doesn't seem to stay connected longer than an hour without reconnecting so I tend to like easy tether. This is awesome by the way internet is down till I get a router and its been good for this week. . .easytether let's you access secure sites for free too.
