    I'm tethered using the wifitether apk. Very simple to root and unlock these phones.

    As expected wireless tetheriing works very well with the Nexus!

    Of course the first place to start is root access. Then do what the guys above said.

    I have not rooted. Installed app called wifi hotspot (free trial. 9.99 to buy) and wifi hotspot works for my Galaxy Tabs and my laptop. Pretty sure I found it due to an earlier thread on this forum.

    I work in an environment where I allow people to use my mobile hot spot..

    How ever. I heard that the nexus doesn't show you whose connected or how many devices are connected.

    Is this true? Any suggestions??

    Wifi tether does show what mac addesses are connected. Ypu can also set up an access list to only allow certain mac addresses to connect.

    I saw someone post about elixir widget allowing this without a subscription prompt. Thought they were probably mistaken but I downloaded and was shocked they were correct. Created a hot spot toggle widget and wala it worked perfectly. No root no prompt to subscribe just worked. I use it rarely so its OK for me
