    I'm curious if anyone has done it, and what their experience has been. Someone mentioned issues related to ad hoc network, but others said it worked. Would love to hear your experience.

    Thanks!

    unrEVOked + Android-Wifi-Tether = Wireless access point. No need to worry about adhoc crap. (android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code)

    Sweet.. thanks. So why does the default version do adhoc? It seems strange.

    Hope they don't shut that project down.(doubt they would, lots of other projects like that have been around)

    Default version of what? The built in Sprint Hotspot is Infrastructure and I thought the WiFi Tether for Evo was defaulted that way too

    The builtin tethering methods- I don't have my Evo yet but I heard someone saying it was an ad hoc connection. Anyone know specifics on that?

    I tried it and it "works'. I could connect to xbox live, but I couldn't really connect to any games (I tried to play halo, but it never found a game). I am running 3g though. It would probably work better for 4g.

    I have not tried to play Xbox live while connected to the EVO, however, I do have a close friend who has Clear and even on full strength with a wired connection from the modem, games lag (Gears 2, COD MW 2).

    the connection for XBL gaming has to be cable speeds or better for games not to be laggy online.

    well my cable was 3 mb / s when I still had it. It's the ping/latency that's the issue from what I hear.

    I am using the Wireless Tether app right now to tether to my laptop and Xbox. After playing Halo 3 for 30 minutes I have used a grand total of 3.5 MB down and 1.2 MB up... That is a minuscule amount of data. I am using voice chat as well. Lag is there but not unbareable. I get 3-4 bars on halo and stay in the yellow, sometimes moving into the green.

    I am impressed, especially since I am only getting 1-3 bars on my phone in this house where I am house sitting.

    I tried it with my Nexus One and it took like 10 minutes to find a game on Modern Warfare 2, played it for a few minutes and go kicked out and its very LAGGY. I'm surprised I got 5 kills.

    I have done this successfully as well and was also surprised by the small data usage. My question that I'm hoping someone can answer is how to get game updates to work.

    I have some games (Red Dead Redemption) that require an update to play on LIVE but the update always fails. I have played MW2 successfully with minimal lag but really want to know a way to get the update to work.

    Here's an idea for anyone doing this and having trouble: My connection has been much better when I tether to my PC first, and hten bridge the connection to my Xbox. No idea why, but just seems to work better.

    When using 4G for Xbox live, can you still send and receive calls?

    I am too curious about this question as well? What happens if someone calls you while you are connected and playing?

    So I have tried on multiple occasions to connect my Xbox360 to my Evo running Wireless Tether via the internal wireless. Every time I get an error that the xbox cannot obtain an IP address? Every post I read says how easy it is to connect yet I have tried every setting and can't get past a simple connection to my phone??? Please help!

    I did this for months....First I was using pda net and running it through my laptop and sharing the connection with the Xbox....but that got annoying so I rooted my Evo, Got wifi tether...and Just connected wireless. Turned on 4g and would play all night with no lag....but I am also down the street from a Clear tower...so I would always have 2 or 3 4g bars
