    I run Wireless Tethering and able to pick up a signal from my laptop. My cousin can also pick up a signal from his iPhone but my brother can't pick it up from his Droid Eris. Any Help??? Thanks.

    Wireless tether is an ad-hoc connection that's why. The Eris (along with many older Android phones) don't support it. Its sort of odd actually. An Eris can create a wireless tether, but it can't connect to one.

    Why might I ask is he trying to tether an Eris to another Droid? Isn't that Eris activated and have its own data plan?

    The Eris is not activated and he just wants to be able to pick up wifi from me. No way he can do anything to his phone to be able to do this?

    His Ipod was also having trouble connecting. It does show up with a strong signal showing but when he connects it said unable to connect to Android Tether. :/
