    What is BB 2.1? There's a Bugless Beast v1.0 is that what you're referring too? If so wireless tether is working for me.

    I have Bugless Beast V1.0 with Wireless Tether App (free) - have had no problems at all. It is version 2.0.1 for the Wireless Tethering App.

    What I did was - go to the Market and search for "wifi tether" - three came up: Barnacle Wifi Tether paid/unpaid (which I haven't tried). And Wireless Tether for Root Users --- which is what I'm using. Try that one.

    When I go to help about -- the version of Wireless Tether for Root Users is 2.0.1 (riding a pony) :p That's what it says, lol.

    You installed the app but did you install a kernel that supports tethering?

    In your second reply, you mentioned that your computer was not recognizing the phone. What are your settings?

    Cool - good to hear! This mobile wifi rocks and I'd gladly pay for it if I need to.

    Barnacle is the only 1 that works for me. It stats connected unless a phone call comes in of course. The Widow Tether that comes with some Rome out there disconnects constantly.
