this is really weird, first of all i got the Nexus 1, with stock 2.2 FRF91 my phone has an internet connection by itself (i always have the 3g icon and ability to browse the net at all times - both with or without the hotspot on). i also have a laptop running win7 32bit which connects to my wireless router with no problem. i tried setting up wifi hotspot on my nexus (both opened and secured - same result) then connecting with my laptop, it connects fine but then win says it has no internet connection (also when opening the "network and sharing center" it shows that the connection between the laptop and phone is ok, but phone-internet is broken). also, im not sure if that is related, but i tried connecting the desktop computer (win7 32bit) with usb tethering. my desktop has the nexus drivers installed (i am using adb commands here and there with no problem) again, it is connected and the pc is saying something about a "remote internet device" but no internet connection! any ideas? i am actually interested in solving the wifi issue (i wouldnt mind solving the usb, but thats a secondary issue that perhaps is related). thanks!
