I had that problem until I went in and messed with the device profile and changed it to generic Ics/jb (wlan 0)..so your problem may lay there, but now i have no problems with it.

The problem is the TYPE of WiFi it is broadcasting... by default WiFi tether uses an ad-hoc (peer to peer) connection which most androids are unable to see/connect to.

In the case of the prevail, you can set the device profile/method and achieve an 'infrastructure' WiFi connection. Which is the same type of signal a router broadcasts.

There may be a profile/method that will work for the hydro. Just try combinations of them.

i did that and now my hydro wifi has the same config as my home wifi.
start wifi tether but "don't" start tethering,
hit the 3 dots at the bottom of the phone to open settings,
hit "change device profile andtick generic ICS/JB(wan0),
you should be good to go
