So I've owned several rooted Android devices over the years and have yet to see wifi tethering be reliable, or even work past a few minutes. Most times it just sits there spinning it's wheels until eventually the connection aborts. Currently I'm running a triumph with CM7 installed and am having the same result with several different tethering apps. I see people talking all the time about how they tether constantly and even play games like WoW over their data connections. WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING WRONG HERE!? I find it strange that this just never works for me, even with different phones running different ROMS on different carriers. I live in San Jose Ca so it's not like i'm out the boonies either!
