    It may have been disabled by your carrier as some of them don't allow it. What do the T&C's in your contract say about tethering?

    I have an galaxy prevail and I can promise you all that you can tether to your of by downloading pdanet in the android market and obviously it also works as a wifi hotspot as I am posting this from my iPod which is connected to my android wifi while I'm watching YouTube videos on my laptop which is also connected to my droid wifi. I mean 55 dollars a month. Only drawback it runs the battery down quick keep charger close and enjOy boosts great capabilities

    It is a Blessing for those off us on a Budget. Watch the temperature on your phone, especially if you have it on the charger while running wifi hotspot. You can have it display in F or C

    If it gets too hot it will reboot. I try to keep it well below 100 F. But heat is not good for it and could cause damage.

    Here in Dixie, it is really only a problem in the hottest most humid months. Especially, if you are cheap with using the A/C.

    Had to extract the library file from the wifi tether apk and add it to the system/lib folder, then just put the apk in the system/app folder, and viola! :)

    I got it from this site , Wyelkins . They look the same but are different links . Same download though , I think . lol
    Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting

    Under Change Device Profile , I selected Samsung Galaxy Indulge .
    Under Change Setup Method , I selected Softap for Samsung (master).
    They have fixed the bugs that were in the last app . I no longer need to reboot after using the TRUE WiFi HotSpot . AdHoc still works the way It always has , perfect !

    I'm on Beta 6 because the later ones were causing problems getting WiFi running again. Are you saying Beta 11 finally lets WiFi work after you stop sharing?

    Went ahead and upgraded from beta 6 to beta 11.

    Problem is not fixed. When I turn off hotspot, the phone will not reconnect to my WiFi router... in fact WiFi refuses to turn on at all. I have to reboot and then turn the phone's WiFi on.
