    I get wireless tether going, my laptop can see my dx. It can also connect to it. But then the laptop can't connect to the internet (it says local only). What am I missing?

    latest android version OTA with z4rooted

    thanks,

    You have to allow the connection in the app. Dig around in the menus. You'll see it

    If your referring to Access Control....it sees it...I allow it and enabled it.
    Didn't make a difference with that on or off.


    thanks,

    I just tried the very newest version there and same thing. It connect ...it has access control...but local only. No internet.

    Do you have to run anything else besides Wireless tether to get this to work? any other apps in the background or what am I missing here.

    May sound dumb but you have to bee root and grant su powers to the app...do other su apps work? Check superuser.apk and make sure the tether has access

    thanks for the input guys. I appreciate it.

    Yes, I'm rooted.
    Yes, superuser gives access to wireless tether.
    every time i start the tether you can see that superuser rights were granted.

    I see 1 error in the Show logs spot.
    Enabling Access control...
    failed

    everything else is in "done"

    I dont see a way to look into the Access control error. When I connect with my laptop it shows up on my DX and is given access control(or so it shows) and my laptop does connect ...just local only

    thanks,

    edit...yes other root apps work

    This may not be what you want, but I hacked my nvram and use the 3g hotspot app. That will def work...tbh has the tools you need

    I've never tried it (I'm happy with Wireless Tether for root since I got it to work), but I've read good things about Barnacle as a tethering app for root users.
