How to access my Epic 4g internet with my Xoom tablet? Ad Hoc?
So, I am a linux user and understand some of the basic problems....You either need to get the device picking up the signal to see ad hoc, or you need the sending device to send something other than ad hoc....clever how they did that. Bastards.
Ill try any approach. Ill offer feedback. Ill offer $20. Please help?
I would even try bluetooth wifi.
How can I get wifi, from my Epic 4g with Sprint, primarily using the 3g here, onTO my Xoom Android tablet and/or onto my laptop running Linux Mint/Ubuntu?

There are two ways of going about this. You can pay for the tethering feature through sprint and connect the xoom to the epic 4g that way. The other option is what RHChan stated. If you are not clear about rooting and what it can do (positive and negative), go check out the epic 4g's hacking section and read through of the threads. They have a bunch of great informative threads to give further clarification about root access.
I know what rooting is.
In fact my phone was already rooted using Z4root before I made this post.
I have been told that Wifi Tether will produce an Infrastructure Wifi, but I have been unable to get it to work. It completely crashes. Apparantly it works with the Evo, but I have not found a version that actually works on my Epic-4g (2.2 Froyo, not 2.1). The ones that others pointed me to showed up as having viruses, and the one in the app store didnt work in infastructure mode.
You probably think you are talking to an ***** because I said Wifi when i meant tether, but this is not the case.....The replies have been really dumbed down. Obviously I know the difference between bluetooth and wifi. They are different frequencies and they are used differently.
Im not an *****, I know what wifi and tethering are, my phone is already rooted using z4root, and Wifi Tether didnt work at all.
Can anyone help me?
Point me to a version of Wifi Tether or the version of Barnicle tether that uses infrastructure mode instead of ad hoc.
Its kind of frustrating when people start treating you like an ***** and stop adding anything useful because of a spelling or grammar error, or misappropriation.

Nick: I have the epic 4g rooted and bought the xoom when it first came out. Then realized that with the xoom requiring infrastructure mode (and the wifi tether app not supporting it), that I wouldn't be able to tether. Looked for a workaround for 2 weeks and then just returned the xoom for an ipad 2 (which does tether, and is cheaper )
