I'm going to use my rooted droid with wireless tether to connect to my new Verizon Samsung Tab. This would essentially allow me to get free 3G on the tab. The problem is the tab does not pick up the "androidtether" signal. It doesn't show up on the wireless networks list. :icon_eek:

I'm perplexed by this because I have done this several times with my laptop and it works perfectly. Any ideas or solutions? Thanks for your help!
The tab wont connect to an adhoc connection so wifitether wont work as is. I also have been searching for a solution to this for a friend so I hope someone else can chime in with a solution.
I'm hoping for this to work big time. I had read on forums that the IPADs had trouble with this too, but i tried it in a store after the galaxy didn't see the android tether and it connected right up. From what I've read, worst case I upgrade my phone to one with hotspot capability and then wireless tether can do infrastructure. Is that correct?
