    Hey all,

    I am using Wireless Tether for Root Users (on UD 5.0.1 if that matters) and it works great, for about 1 minute then it disconnects and has to reestablish the connection.

    Any ideas why this happens or how to correct?

    Try reinstalling using the wireless tether install in the ultimate droid settings in the menu

    I use a Mac and to establish a connection, I need to turn on access control then once connected I turn it off. If you can't get this app to work try Barnacle. Many members report very good results with this app.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know how you resolve.

    Not trying to hijack this thread but my situation is very similar and I believe the solution will be the same.

    I can not get my PC to see my Droid with wifi tethering and UD5.0. I tried the above possible solution with no result. I even tried updating with the wifi tethering app from the market. This did not work either.

    When I swap back to UD 4.0, wifi tethering works just fine.

    Any one else have any ideas?

    It seems that the issue is with UD 5. I don't know id UC has an IRC site but if they do log on as ask them for a recommendation. In not, and you really need the tethering then you may need to switch to a different rom.

    Let us know what you decide.

    Thats what I ended up doing. I love all the features and speed of UD, but I GOT to have wifi tethering capabilities so I went with the new FRG22 vanilla ROM until UD fixes this issue.

    One thing that worked for me is making sure Wireless Tether was installed to phone storage. When it was on my SD, it wouldn't connect.

    Sorry your not able to run UD but if the tethering trumps the rom then you did not have a choice. Hopefully, the UD folks will correct this issue quickly.
