    Long time lurker, but 1st post! I rooted my phone about a month ago using BB v1.0 and loving it. The major reason I rooted was for the wifi tether. My situation might be a bit different than other people that are using wifi tether, since I'm connecting to my car (www.mp3car.com). Using the app wifi tether, I can easily connect to a network manually, but everytime I turn off my car, it obviously looses connection. When I turn my car back on, I have to MANUALLY reconnect. I am using Windows 7 and have created the profile that's supposed to reconnect automatically, but it never does. I believe that since this isn't a real wifi hotspot and just an adhoc network, that this automatic connection isn't possible with just Windows 7 networking settings.

    Has anyone had any success getting your wifi tether to automatically connect to their laptop when you turn it on?

    Thanks for your help,
    -Troy
