    Hey all, having a lot of trouble w/ Barnacle.

    I'm rooted. Barnacle runs w/ no error. My and my wife's Lenovos (Vista), and my Wii, can detect the ad-hoc network named "barnacle". But when they try to connect, they just time out after 5 min.

    Barnacle shows no sign in the log, traffic, or client window that anything is happening. I've tried setting a static IP, but no difference... Can anyone offer any advice?

    I use PDANet to tether. It's great. But the 3G Hotspot would be VERY convenient for us. Are there any other wi-fi tethering options for the Ally?

    Thanks to all in advance!

    I've gotten it to work pretty reliably with Ubuntu Linux. My only advice is, be patient and keep trying. Sometimes you have to wait a few minutes before it's possible to connect. Not sure why.

    Just needed to update the wifi drivers on my laptop.

    Runs flawlessly. Thanks for the help.
