    I've been using PE since V1 and can't imagine using anything else. What is am looking for is hotspot or infrastructure mode wireless tether capability. I understand that CM and maybe some other Roms have this capability. I am running the latest Wireless Tether apk, which I believe has this capability on the DX and D2, but an unable to find any option to go from adhoc to infrastructure.

    Thanks

    This is purely a kernel issue. Hunt around for kernels that work with it.

    I am using the stock kernel in the Rom, which I believe is a LV Slayer 1100. Maybe I'm doing something else wrong. Just to be clear, I have no problem using wireless tether from my Droid to a Windows netbook. I want to be able to tether from my Droid to an Android tablet which from what I understand will not work in adhoc mode. I see no option within Wireless Tether or settings to anywhere else to go from adhoc to infrastructure mode.

    That makes sense. Droid can't broadcast infrastructure wifi.

    This isn't a kernel issue, it's a limitation of the Droid's wifi chipset. Unfortunately the Droid 1 will never support infrastructure mode.

    ok.. someone explain it to me... what's the difference between tethering and being a hotspot. I don't mean all the technical stuff. I am simply wanting to know that, if I walked into a retaurant and saw my buddy there and I had my laptop with me.... What is the difference between using his phone as a hotspot to get on the net or wirelessly tethering to it to get on the net.

    Not all wifi devices can connect via tethering with the Droid. With a "hotspot" anything will work.
