    Doing some experimenting with Wireless Tether v2.0.2

    I'm able to connect just fine (though MAC filtering doesn't work), but after a bit it keeps dropping the connection.

    I'm running encryption, set on Channel 3. any suggestions?

    note: BB0.4, Chevy ULV 1.2 kernel....PC running Win7

    Locale is the number one cause, but other programs might do it to. If you have Locale running, just click on settings and disable it, then your connection will stay up. If it isn't Locale, then go through what else that's running that might be the culprit, and share the results here ;) Regular sync and K-9 and GMail et cetera don't cause a problem (I run all of them while tethered). I have the same problem with MAC filters on Froyo/BB.

    I'm running Locale....Thanks for the tip! I'll see if that fixes it.
