    first of all, hello everyone!

    second, huge thanks to giantpune for the apk root and kernal, leslie ann for harmonia, and everyone else for their hard work.

    third, my question.

    i switched from the optimus v about a week and a half ago. i was just about to get a nexus 7 tablet until i read that it doesn't recognize ad-hoc networks, which is all i can seem to get from the OE. :mad: now i regret selling my OV.

    anyone know how to wireless tether to a nexus 7 using an OE? i really want one but this is a deal breaker.

    thanks

    any disadvantages to a bluetooth connection vs wifi? speed, number of devices that can connect, battery drain, etc...?

    this gives me hope. now just waiting on the 32gb nexus 7 :p

    ok then, i will attempt to answer my own questions.

    first off, this pdanet method kinda works. chrome works, play store works, but a lot of apps don't recognize this type of connection. so thats really annoying.

    also i can't get the laptop to connect this way. keeps telling me the drivers for the phone aren't installed even though i've installed them like 3 times now. thats really annoying.

    anyway, speed is pretty good. can't tell a difference. i can't connect more than the nexus, so i don't know if multiple devices are supported. battery drain seems about the same.

    so if you are thinking about getting a nexus 7 (or any android tablet?) and an elite, and you already have an OV, stick with the OV. at least until someone figures out how to get infrastructure mode working.
