Also curious about this. I know there is a fix to get computers onto the Rezounds network, but it wouldn't be possible with my Roku.

You can flash one of the ics roms and use wifi tether in infrastructure mode.

I think the gingerbread roms support this too. Ive been eyeing up Scotts Clean Rom. I think that covers it.

And I think you just have to root and install the right app. Isnt that correct?

I just tried Fox and WiFi tether does not work, as they state in their description. Tried Bluetooth but it didn't seem to work right either.

Are you rooted? Only works if you're rooted. On Wifi Tether, follow these instructions.

Set Device profile to Galaxy Nexus, change setup method to Netd Master. Make sure Wifi Driver reload is checked, enable access control (people won't be able to use the wifi) and finally, check routing fix to on.

Turn on Wifi-tether and you're good to go

I tried these directions and I'm afraid it didnt work for me. It wouldnt even broadcast despite showing that tether was active. And to confirm, the profile was attempted with SamSung Galaxy Nexus LTE and the other profile for GSM.

Any other suggestions? Thanks for your info

i can confirm, those settings dont work with stock rom. dosnt broadcast - just simply flash cleanrom 4.1 (make sur eto do fw upgrade before tho!) and it comes wth wifi tether, and simply follow the directions above and it will work, im on WPA2 encryption and works veryyyy well. no problems.

Good to know it works, I use this for pretty much all my wi-fi devices and its very stabled and reliable
Yea I forgot to add that you need a different rom

A GB Rom will work also, make sure however it has the fix since not all GB rom's support it.

I have the Cleanrom 4.1 that I got tonight, and this is not working for me. I had to restart a couple of times to get it to broadcast, and when it does I can't create a connection. It just hangs.

Update: After playing with the settings and re-installing I got this working with the above settings. Not sure what I had missed but now it's great.
