    Folks, PdaNet has released beta software, PdaNet Tablet, to tether the transformer to an android phone, without having to root the tablet.

    Android Market



    The software is buggy, but it works with my EVO 4G via bluetooth.

    You must install the app on both the tablet and the phone.

    BT tethering can already be done via Wireless Tether, if your phone is rooted. No need to install anything on the TF. I do this w/ my Droid 1 and TF.

    But thanks for the 411 anyway.

    I was BT tethering with just PdaNet on my non-rooted DroidX, just enabled tethering options on the TF. I am glad though they have came out with an app for tablets.

    I can tether my jailbroken iPhone to my TF over Bluetooth. However, the TF does not recognize ad-hoc networks.

    I love you! I have been searching forever for a way to tether without routing. Installed this and its working great! Thank you.

    But apps don't recognize Internet connectivity (besides the browser)

    Why should tethering be so hard?
    I set up my Desire HD with the built in "Wireless hot spot" functionality and connect my Transformer to that network and done.

    no extra apps, no bugs, just how it is supposed to be and everything works like I would be connected to a normal wifi router.

    Why are there some many problems with tethering? People talking about operators blocking it... I really don't understand. My operator has no business looking at what I do with the 2GB's I pay for (prepaid 15 euros a month for calling, 2GB free and unlimited texts :D)

    ^^^I agree...I just start Mobile AP on my rooted captivate and let the wifi on the tablet connect to the Mobile AP

    I agree about tethering when you are limited to the data to pay for anyways. I'm actually on the last network with true unlimited data (sprint). I still think i should be able to tether after paying $70 a month

    I think some phones didnt support that type of wifi so people would want to use wired tethering. Also, would save phone's battery life.

    Same here... I have tried everything short of rooting... This proxy app works great! It would be cool if other apps besides the browser would see the connection... but I'll take what I can get.

    It is working on my HTC Thunderbolt to Acer A500 Tablet

    I was using PDANet until they disappeared from the Market for a while. Since then, I've been using Bluetooth tethering to connect my Transformer to my Droid X. Works every time, and no 3rd-party application needed. Neither device is rooted either.

    I can't remember what the earliest firmware version is but one of the fairly recent updates enabled tethering to ad-hoc networks as 'standard'. I was easliy able to tether with my HD2 using wm6.5 and a WiFiRouter freeware programme. Easy peasy

    This. I have tethered like this from day 1 and it works seamlessly.

    I use Barnacle on a Sony X10 2.1 and I run an AD-HOC network and I tether just fine.

    What's the big deal ?

    Unrooted Transformer with OTA updates from Asus.

    I'm feeling REALLY stupid for asking this but how do I get this app on my evo phone and vizio tablet?

    I've been searching for months for a tethering app. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME! :)

    Click on the 'Android Market' link in the first post.
    From there you should be able to install the app to both of your devices. (I'm just assuming the Vizio tablet is an Android device).

    I got it onto my tablet with no problem but when I click on it from my phone it tells me to log in to gmail but then keeps saying requested item could not be found. Any idea how to get the app on my phone?
  22. Podivin

    Podivin Android Expert

    Try going to the market using the app on your phone and search for it there.

    It's possible that the app is not compatible with the Android version on your phone, which is why it's 'not found'. When you click on the Android Market link above, does the page say "this app is compatible with ALL of your devices" or "this app is compatible with SOME of your devices" ?

    It doesn't say anything about being compatible. It just says it's going to download but when I click sign in nothing happens. I have an evo 4g. Any ideas suggestions?

    Are you using that link on a PC or one of your Androids?
    If on Android try a PC, it SHOULD work there. By the way, the log on it's asking for is your Gmail, which is only useful to know if you can get it to show you the login screen.

    I visited it from my tablet no problem but can't seem to access from phone. How do I get around that? Anyone have the apk?
