    On my home computer, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit.

    I rooted my phone with the one-click root program.

    When I try the wireless tether, it boots up without any errors in the error log.

    I can connect to the network (on my PC) that the wireless tether is showing up as (The name & password go through fine, and I connect)

    The problem is that once I do that, I cannot access the internet from my computer, and the "connected devices" thing on my phone doesn't show... Well, anything.

    Help please? :(

    Just did.

    Starting...
    Data network is ready
    .ini file prepared
    ./run not found
    Stopped unexpectedly!

    Have you tried any other app that requires root?

    Not really, haven't had anything else that requires root... I have a Superuser program installed and it's working fine, requested permission on the WiFi Tether app, so I'd assume it's working correctly

    Don't know what version you guys are using but don't use the one from the market. Use one of these instead, uninstalling any previous version still on the phone:

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

    If it still doesn't work, create a folder titled android.tether on the root of your SD card and place the .apk and the following bin file inside:

    fw_bcm4329.bin

    Run the .apk from inside the android.tether folder and retest to see if things are working.
