    I think it means you can now connect proper wifi, so you can now get online with a Nintendo DS/PS3 etc.

    Does this mean we can connect to a PS3 now? I've been using PDANet to do so, but wired. It would be cool to not have to go thru my computer for the ad hoc network.

    Strange thing is the access control feature worked before upgrading, now I get an error that says my kernel does not support it. Anyone else?

    Access control has *never* worked for me since Froyo. Which version were you using?

    You're still fine, though. If you use AP mode and WPA2 encryption (not wep), its as good as using access control. No one will be able to use it without the password.

    I had 2.0.2 and it worked fine for me. I know I can encrypt it, it was just easier using access control

    I can confirm that the PS3 works perfectly with Wifi Tether now. I will do some tests with some simple games like Uno and see if you can get away with playing them online in addition to downloading games, and watching some Netflix.

    I'm sure Verizon isn't too happy with this update. :laugh:

    How is the setup process? Don't you need to enter a WEP code or something or can you just click through all those inputs and let it do it by itself? I'm away from home for the next week, so I can't actually check this myself right now.
