    The obvious question would be are you rooted?

    I would say give it a good 5 minutes before you start using the internet. I've noticed sometimes it takes awhile for the internet to work with Wireless Tether. Sometimes I have to do an ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew a few times before it actually starts pulling data from the internet. It's really picky. So just keep trying.
