    I've tried Barnacle with rooted 2.1 using Chevy's wifi kernel, as well as the native Wifi Tether App in CM with CM's kernel, and in both cases, my laptop (Win 7 32 bit) AND desktop (same) will see it but won't connect when there is a WEP password set - but connect just fine unsecured. I thought maybe it was the kernel until I tried it with CM, too. Any thoughts?

    Hmm, I have been using the basic "Wireless Tether for Root Users" on my Moto Droid for months. Works great even when WEP secured. In fact I am on it right now just to double check for ya...

    I had the same problem. Turned off WEP and everything worked fine. I told the developer about it and he said WEP should work just fine on Windows Vista and 7. Never found a solution.

    Barnacle is the only app I can find now. Evidently Wireless Tether for Root Users (among others) has been pulled. Not a huge deal as I won't use this too often, but I like having the option to do it. There's always PDAnet and EasyTether I guess, though not as flexible obviously!
