    I have a rooted OG Droid. I have WIFI Hotspot enabled, but most android devices cannot connect to an ad-hoc network. An IPad will connect.

    Can one of you with a XOOM see if it will connect to an ad-hoc WIFI network?

    thanks.

    the evo i use is not rooted. i pay for the hotspot sprint offers. the xoom is able to connect to the hotspot from the evo without issue.
