    Also, try installing the latest version from my signature. I'm sure it's more recent than the one you're trying to use now.

    I have v2.0.2 installed and it doesn't work. My setup is CM6.1 with P3Droid's LV250-1000 kernel. I know i can usb tether, but it'd be nice to be able to wifi tether when i forget my cable.

    same issue as the OP.

    And the version in my signature is 2.0.5PRE15 unless it's been updated since I last checked a couple days ago.

    Your signature goes to the main wifi tether page. Fwiw i installed v2.0.5RC1 and it works just fine. YMMV.

    You obviously haven't talked to FBM much. He's not really the smart/sarcastic type. Profanity can get you banned though...all because you read into something too deep. Not worth it!

    Fwiw FBM is not a moderator and second we do not allow name calling on DF especially when someones just trying to offer assistance.
    Thank you carry on.

    I see no reason for any name calling to be going on in this thread. JStafford has cleaned it up, I'm just letting you know that if we see anymore of it, it's a 30 day vacation. Flamming, disrespect, name calling will not be toleratedin the Droid Forums.

    ever since FRG83D was installed, i cannot use wireless tethering either. rather, i can see my 'hotspot' on my computer, but it never finishes connecting to the phone. i used the most recent version posted online.

    what changed since 2.2.1 to cause this plague?

    I'm guessing that means 2.0.5RC1?

    Okay, what OS are you trying to tether? Have you deleted all the APs stored on your Droid? Have you changed channels, turned off access control, deleted the tethering profile on your computer? Do you need to hook more than one device up at a time? If not, have you tried tethering via USB?

    USB tethering does work, however, sometimes i have to connect multiple devices.

    interestingly, after trying wired tethering my wireless tethering application is working again.

    also, my phone is just rooted and running stock 2.2.1. no custom kernel on it right now either.

    Your computer couldn't refresh the connection properly. Remember that trick. ;) It may prove useful. :)

    i've found it's usually the access control that needs turning off. after that everything seems to work.

    I am using the RC1 candidate which is the most recent version with Droid 1 and MIUI 0.1232 ROM. Wifi tether works beautifully.
