    I have an unlocked Atrix with Fido in Canada. I can't use the default Mobile Hotspot because it says I need to get it enabled through AT&T. I've tried Barnacle and WiFi tether and although they work as a wifi hotspot, the Xoom cannot see either network. I think both run as Ad-hoc networks and the Xoom does not see Ad-hoc networks.

    Anyone able to get their Xoom connected through their Atrix using a WiFi hotspot? If so, can you let me know how you got it working?

    My Atrix was teathering perfectly as a hot spot and USB connection on my PCs. Don't know for sure, but since last firmware update I can get it to pair to my Xoom tablet but no internet connection goes thru. On my PCs neither the wifi hotspot or the cable teather no longer works.

    Anybody know what could have happened?

    I put the SIM card back in my iPhone 3GS to test if it was the fido network and all worked OK. seems its the Atrix somehow.

    thanks
