    One of the reasons (among many) I rooted my phone was for access to the hotspot app. I was wondering if there may be other wireless router apps out there you might like better than the stock one.

    WiFi Tether or Barnacle are the 2 best in my opinion. WiFi Tether has more options and seems to be a little quicker but is also finnicky and glitchy sometimes. Barnacle is less glitchy but also has fewer features.

    I recommend WifiTether 2.0.7. It uses WPA/WPA2 (128 bit encryption).
    You can find their work on google code.
    They have a beta (yellow wifi icon) that works on some ROMs.

    I remember looking up Barnacle a long time ago and they were using WEP encryption. So it's up to you.

    I prefer the hacked Sprint one. It works everytime where as sometimes I have issues with the other ones.

    If I'm trying to use the hotspot, its because I need it, and I need it to work.

    Thanks for the responses. I could never get my laptop to see the signal from the Barnical app but it picked up the Wifi just fine. I want to try it with my work VPN so I'll see how that goes.

    I noticed Wifi had experimental and beta apps available but I passed on them for now.
