    Have not tried because I am not willing to pay Verizon another 20.00 a month. Did you mean stock or rooted? I have yet to root mine.

    Either way, just not paying the extra fee. Like maybe pdanet or anything? Has anyone got anything to work?

    I've seen on another android site that PDa net does indeed work on the Nexus.

    It seems everyone is having a problem with wifi tether atm. I did read that someone got pda-net working. However, I have not had luck tethering to xoom. I hope the boys at wifi tether hook us up.

    I too can confirm PDAnet works fine. Used it all last night streaming netflix. :biggrin:

    Would like to keep abreast of wifi tether news though. PDAnet is fine for a computer, but could never get it to work on my tablet. I know there's a PDAnet for tablet app, but never could get the two to connect. So would like to have the wifi tether option soon.

    download "Wifi Hotspot and USB tether"

    there is a 2 day trial free and a 9.99 App. Try the trial 1st but it should work. You DO NOT have to root your galaxy nexus. Mine is not rooted.

    however with the app I did have to install it like 3 times till it finally worked. But it indeed works 100%. Watched a few videos to try it out and I had no issues
