    Finally broke down and rooted tonight. Picked up Wireless Tether from the market, had everything set -- kept getting limited access messages on my laptop. Did some searching and came across the solution to manually download the apk and a .bin file and put it in the android.tether directory on sd card. Was finally able to connect from my laptop.

    However, my connection is limited to "local only". I have tried using the access control, disabling access control, turning on encryption, disabling encryption, etc. Every time I connect, local only. I've flushed my IP info on the laptop and still local only.

    What do I need to do to get full access?

    Post #79 in that thread. It's the one that shows up when you click the link. Click the link, don't move anything and it will be right on your screen.
