I've only recently rooted my Moto Droid 1 and yesterday added the Google Wifi Tether app (v 2.0.7) directly from their site (not through the market - apparently that one has problems). It worked right off but regularly drops the connection when the amount transferred gets between 5-6MB. I did some searching, made some tweaks, and have the same problem. I then decided to load Barnacle Wifi Tether too. Exact same problem! They both seem to reset after about 5 min. I have to close the app, drop the network from my laptop or iPad and then re-do everything. Any thoughts/suggestions? Is there some setting I'm missing? I'm not finding much online.
