    Hey I new to the forums and sorry if this has been asked but i Couldnt find it in the search but any ways.....

    I rooted my Hero and now am running fresh rom 1.1. When I open Wifi tether I press the "start to tether" button and the root access comes up I allow it but I can never get any connection speeds.

    Are you actually connected to a laptop/computer when doing this? If you are not, naturally it shows 0 for connection speed.

    I am rooted and wireless tethering runs and shows data up and down. i connect my computer to tethering and it makes a connection, but local only. Why doesn't the Internet work? Are there seetings on my phone that I need to have on or off?

    Mr. The Bouncer, I think you're confusing two things, WiFi Connection and WiFi Tethering. The app that you're refering to is WiFi Tether. You use this app so that your laptop can connect to your Hero and use it like a wifi hotspot. This will allow your laptop to surf the web through your phone's connection. Until you connect your laptop, it will show 0kb up and down. Once you connect, it will show numbers both up and down, verifying that data is moving through your phone's connection.

    I think what you were trying to do is connect to a WiFi network. Go into your Wireless Control settings and turn on WiFi, and connect to a network.
