    im sure this is a little late...but i have seen somewhere that the xoom cant pick up some connections...when we try to tether our phones to the wifi editions i guess our phones transmit a frequency that the xoom cant see because i have tried it too and i had no luck either unfortuantely.

    For others having this problem, it's true, the wifi xoom (to the best of my knowledge) can't pick up an ad-hoc wifi broadcast (or whatever the OG Droid puts out, I forget the terminology).

    I broadcast a Bluetooth connection from my OG D1 and then pair it with the Xoom, and that works great.
