    I'm using 7.0.3 on a Droid 1 and I can't get wireless tether to work. When I go to the Tethering menu in settings (under Wireless & Networks), I don't see wireless tether - just USB. I've tried Barnacle and the good old Wifi Tether app that's worked on previous ROMs, but my android tablet doesn't see it. Am I missing something?

    Hmmm...so I can't tether wirelessly unless I root my tablet? I was planning on doing that eventually, but I didn't think I would have to do it just to do wireless tethering.

    No go on Open Garden either. It wasn't recognized as being in range - which is what is happening with the other wifi tether apps I've tried.

    Maybe try running a different kernel on your phone?

    I rooted my tablet and put Cyanogenmod 7.10 RC on it. Apparently stock Android can't connect to an adhoc network. Who ever knew Windows could do something Android can't! Thank goodness for ROM's like CM.
