    If I download a different kernel like netarchy will wifi tether work? Pretty pissed I only rooted to get this and it don't even work. U/D speeds were terrible. Is there a way to remedy this. Thanks.

    Not sure what u mean but I updated my Evo with the OTA 2.2 update back when it was pushed to my phone. Then last night I rooted using unrevoked 3.2 one-click method. Installed wireless tether and u/d speeds were horrible.

    I'm guessing I did the root correctly cause I gave superuser in app drawer and s-off on the hboot screen. Thanks for replying.

    Which version of wifi tether are you using.I believe pre 8 is the most recent but it not always work for everybody so try a different version.

    All I did after rooting was go to the market and downloaded wireless tether app. Am I missing something? How would I go about installing a different version?

    Not sure how many. I connected 2 touch's with the wireless.

    Well I use the hotspot(free of course) I dont have that many wireless devices at home but I have been able to connect up to five.I'm guessing the wireless tether app have the same capabilities but yet I could be wrong.

    Does this app allow you to create a traditional wi-fi hotspot? My work PC is super locked down and can't find/use ad hoc networks.

    For those of you that have paid for and used the Sprint hotspot app, did it support WPA2 encryption? Wifi Tether only seems to use WEP.

    The latest version of Wifi Tether seems to support WPA2 encryption actually. I downloaded it last night to test it out and there was the option to change the passphrase. It shows WPA2-PSK.

    So I installed unrevoked 3.2 last night. Installed Wireless Tether. Tried pre7, 8, and 9 and all I can get is this. Any ideas?

    Did you try to connect a device to it? That's also the screen I get when first load the app and press for tether. Once you connect a device the numbers will start to show what your getting for speeds.

    I too was confused thinking that it would show numbers when I start the app, it doesn't work that way. I tried a bunch of different versions until I realized I was using it the app wrong.

    I was having the same problems connecting as you guys. I the channel, and it started working. Try changing the channels in the settings menu and hopefully that might do the trick.
