    I installed "Wifi Hotspot Widget" and it worked perfectly.

    It worked great today, my kids were surfing via the hotspot with their iPods for about 2 hours on the road around Atlanta without any issues. My wife was playing Angry Birds at the same time on my phone. I have to say, it was a quiet ride. [​IMG]

    First off, i used wifiadhocenabler.apk (look it up on google, requires root, and it patches a few files ) then i am able to use barnacle, wifi tether, foxfi, and just about anyof them wifi tether apps. I realy reccomend foxfi, as it dosnt report tethering to metro.

    I installed wifi adhoc enabler and everytime I try to enable adhoc, it tells me "Unable to modify ownership of supplicant.conf" Why is this?

    Do a google search for "wifi adhoc enabler supplicant.conf", there are some tips to fix the issue with adhoc connections.

    I did already, but no help. I guess I could wait.

    Same thing with me. But it seemed to allow my preferred wifi tether app ( FoxFi) to work. So for now, i would just ignore the error message since everything works

    After the LG update, my tethering is gone :-(

    Was fun while it lasted.

    I tried the Wifi-Tether v3.1 beta11, but when browsing got the metro tether warning page.. :(
