    I've never used the wifi hotspot feature on my EVO, but it seems pretty simple as to how it works... What I'm wondering is if it functions like a typical wireless router. Specifically, does it create a LAN network between connects peers? I'm wondering if it would be at all possible to do something like play (low bandwith) multiplayer LAN games over the EVO's wifi hotspot?

    Thanks for any information.

    It operates like a regular router, but much easier. New versions operate in infrastructure mode, not just peers (ad hoc).

    Games...dunno. Wish I could help there.

    were you all able to successfully connect the wireless if your EVO is rooted? I keep getting the same error message. "unable to tether" or something along the lines of that.

    i followed the steps from htcevohacks.com and it still didnt work.

    thanks in advance.

    Are you using wifi tether? If so, uninstall and reinstall from market. I had the same issue after flashing several ROMs and that fixed it everytime.
