I'm having this same problem. Rooted unrevoked 3.2 (newest) last night. Worked great. Downloaded several versions of Wifi Tether. I'm able to connect but no data connection (internet). I've been searching this forum for hours unable to find anything. Please help.

Thanks!

I have the same problem, I downloaded 2.05prev8 and I still can't get connectivity. It shows I have made the connection on my phone and on my computer, it claims to be transferring data on my Evo but I'm still getting no connectivity on my computer, I'm super frustrated, any help would be appreciated

Just a heads up, wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre11.apk was just released and works even better! Also supports WPA2-PSK.

Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

Good News . . . wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre11 also works on my Samsung Vibrant with the recent T-mo update installed.

Could not get Barnacle Tether to work on this phone

Default Fix : Do not download from market

Do not download the app from the MARKET. Download it directly from the google code website.

This is what ended hours and hours of frustration. Just download the latest version and it will cure the SPRINT EVO 4G LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY on your computer (Windows).

Hope this helps.
