    For some reason my wireless tether isn't working properly. I turn it on and it says that its been granted superuser permissions but then no data moves up or down(or it'll say .4 down and .2 up) and no devices find it! I need help making this work because i'm going to buy the google tablet and just use this to power it WIFI. HELP!!

    LOL! I did. That was one of the first things I did before I posted. But I got it working on a netbook. For some reason, turning on another galaxy's wifi, it doesn't find it. But the netbooks do, I'm going to try it on the store demo Ipad in a second... But If it works... HELLO Galaxy Tab withuot Verizon's $20 monthly charge. Just Wifi babyyy

    Yeah, I think I've read before that other galaxy's don't pick up.

    I streamed an episode on Hulu on my desktop last night with no hangups :) while emailing/texting.

    Yea, that was my dumb fault:eek:. I wasn't trying it on my laptop or anything. But I tried it on my store Ipad and netbooks no problem, and its faster than the MIFI's we sell LOL!

    my wireless speeds are abysmal for some reason. outdoors is acceptable, but indoors (with decent reception) is crap. my droid picked up faster speeds than my fascinate. i mean, wireless tether will work in a pinch, but i'm disappointed

    Yeah obviously the performance will depend on the service area. At home I get ~1.5k down, give or take for peak/off-peak.
