    If someone could give me a step by step breakdown on how to setup and get my wifi tethering capabilities running it would make my day. I'm running Kangerade V5 if that is need to know info. Thank you for any help.

    I downloaded that and install, my laptop reconized the connection as a "computer to computer" connection and when I opened firefox it says I'm not online. So what am I doing wrong?

    Um yes I believe that's what I was doing. Sorry I'm at work right now away from my laptop, but the middle of the screen says tap to start or something along those lines corret? What else do I need to do?

    The next step is easy. After starting the WIFI app and then pressing center you will have to go to your PC's wifi control and select connect to the android. It's that easy.

    This is strange. Try turning access control on and if that doesn't work turn it off again. This happened to me once and that is what I did. to get to access control his menu when in wireless tether than than access control then enable/disable

    Yeah I had no problem doing that, my laptop picked up and connected to the droid but for some reason it won't pick up the internet. Does yours connect as a internet connection or a "computer to computer" connection?

    Also if that doesn't work I would try downloading an older version from online.
