I have been unable to connect my computer to my phone using wireless tether apps, regardless of the app that I am using. My ascend is running CM6, and I freakin love it. Working on getting it exactly the way I want it, and wifi tethering, while probly pretty slow on metro 1x, would be amazing to have when I cant get wifi. I have tried Barnacle, Wifi tether for Root Users, and A Wifi tether AP Mesh Client (thats the name of the app). They all seem to react the same. Once Tethering is started, my computer sees the network (which looks like a peer to peer connection rather than a regular wifi connection). It then asks me to enter my WEP. I enter the wep, and the computer seems to try and connect for some time, but never actually connects. I have gotten the following results with each app Wifi Tether for Root Users - my computer attempts to connect after entering the wep i assigned for my droid. I stop tethering, and afterwards my droids wifi cannot be re-enabled. On top of this, after attempting trying to connect my laptop to my phones wireless tether I cannot seem to reconnect my laptop to my verizon router. I have to restart my router, uninstall wifi tether for root users, and reboot my phone in order to re enable wifi on my ascend. My Laptop requires a restart after the router has been reset for wifi to function normally as well Barnacle - Start tethering, computer attempts to connect. After hitting associate, the barnacle app reads "failed to reassociate". Uninstalled the app. After uninstalling, the Wifi on both my laptop and android function normally. AP mesh app - Same as above, except offers no information regarding association. Any suggestions as to what it could be? I have a metro ascend if that makes any difference. Thanks for any info, and thanks for all those that have helped me thus far.
