Default LG Vortex Tether problem

Finally got my Vortex rooted with the help of Super One Click after trying and failing with several paid market apps. I'm trying to setup my phone as a 3G wireless hotspot for my ASUS eee Pad Android tablet. So far I've tried several including Open Garden tether, Barnacle and Easy tether. Each says successfully installed and functional and I setup the security and SSID but when scanning for a wireless AP with the Asus nothing is found. What am I missing.

Reading up on this a little more some posts say you have to load a new ROM and other Apps say it can enable hotspot function. The wireless hotspot app says it's running ok but no signal is transmitted?

Thanks in advance!

I just rooted the Wife's Vortex using Gingerbreak and I installed wireless tether and it's working good so far.
here's a link android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

Loaded Android WiFi Tether 3.1
Starts loading and then says started with errors"
Configuring Softap - failed
Starting softap - failed
Activating WiFi interface - failed

At the end it says tethering now running but it isn't.

Any suggestions?

I'm having the same exact "Tethering started with errors" problems as you jtz54.. Someone please help!

EasyTether no longer works for me for some reason, PDAnet wants me to start paying them, and Barnacle just straight doesn't work.

Also, tried installing breakneck v4, didn't help at all. I'm about to get a new phone.. the lack of development and support for this one sucks!!

I am having the same problems. I don't know how to use it. It said it's connected but it's not. When I tried the hotspot widget it said, I needed a password? I don't even know what that is either!!

Just tried the Open Garden WiFi tether (free) from Android Market on my rooted Vortex. It works great!
