    So I'm trying to use Wireless tether for the first time, but none of my devices seem to be able to pull an IP address and such from DHCP....they're all just getting 169 addresses.

    I only have two WiFi devices to test this on (laptop running windows 7 + iPhone), and they both have the same problem.

    Any suggestions? I've tried different ssids/channels/encryption on/off, access control on/off and I'm seeing no improvements.

    Wireless Tether also never lists the devices in the connected/authorized clients list.

    I installed the app that was provided with some of the root instructions, then updated to the version in the market.

    Here's my settings right now:

    Wifi Encryption is disabled
    SSID is Testing123
    Channel is 8
    Access Control is off
    LAN network is set to 192.168.3.0/24
    Client Notification is none
    Update check is on
    Wake lock is off

    Try disabling any running applications that use WiFi of GPS. ShopSavvy is one application known to cause issues. I also found I was having trouble until turning off fring and Locale.

    Hmm....I killed shopsavvy, and now my iPhone is asking for a username + password (username?) even with encryption off...I've yet to test it on the laptop.

    Well, reinstalled, and that went away.

    I killed everything, and hey lookie, it worked.
    Time to kill apps one by one...

    Yay, I guess good :p
    I killed these apps:
    skype
    shopsavvy
    mobile package tracker
    y5 battery saver

    in THAT order, and it worked

    I'm guessing it's y5....I'll edit this if I can narrow it down

    Yup. Y5 Battery saver did it. ShopSavvy doesn't seem to hurt anymore.
