    first let me tell you about my phone.. Rooted with Android 2.2 and SkyRider 2.5 software. Baseband updated to 2.x and running Hydra Kernal.

    I downloaded and installed Wireless Tether for Root Users from www.theunlockr.com

    here is the direct link:
    Android Applications | TheUnlockr

    the app installes and seems to run properly ( i am not getting any errors ). It requires Super User permissions. I was able to configure a SSID and WEP permisions, but when turn it on, i am not able to find the network from another wireless device, i have tried manually adding the network but still can't find it.

    the app has an option to change the channel (frequency), i tried each one but still same results...

    anyone elase have any luck witht his app or can recomend another wireless tether app?

    Oh, then that's different. I have never seen 2.2 but I think you don't even need to "Wireless Tethering" app. I think it's just something you turn on under the setting menu. See if this helps:

    right now.. nothing.. just wanted to get it working so when i need / want to use that feature it would be ready to go.

    eventually i would prob use it on my laptop.. i saw some posts about some software that would would install on both the laptop and phone.. but i would rather not have to use software.. this way i can use it on any laptop

    wireless tether is the way to go. have you been to the wireless tether page? google search and grab the latest apk. then maybe try a different kernel a custom-kernel has to supports netfilter (iptables)! can i assume you know how to connect to a wireless network? sorry if you do just looking for a starting point.:)

    well i was going to have you grab the latest version. also on his kernels there was a fix for wifi tether on the change log v0.6 so check how old your kernal is.

    oh are you up now?

    I'm running 2.2 I got on the OTA update on the original droid , rooted so I could install Barnacle. Barnacle says its running fine but my laptop G4 running 10.4 dosen't pick up the hotspot and neither does my PSP. Been through the developers troubleshooting but still no go. I just really want to be able to access the internet with my laptop.

    if your rooted go to the market and get wifi tether for root users, be sure your kernel supports and you will be good.
