    I have a Iphone 3gs and a Nexus 7 tablet. When I first bought the Nexus 7, I had Jellybean 4.1 on it and I was able to get on the internet by tethering my phone to the tablet. I would pair them up via bluetooth and then put my phone on as a hotspot. It worked fine until I updated my Jellybean to 4.2 and now it doesn't connect. Could someone let me know how this could be fixed or if they had the same problem.

    I'm having the same problem. I use Open Garden via blue tooth and its no longer working.

    There's been lots of talk that the 4.2 update hosed up blue tooth. Lord of people using blue tooth speakers and headsets and tethering apps are complaining.

    So I guess all I can say is welcome to the club.

    I have a Samsung nexus phone - got the 4.2 update, and Tethering over Wifi stopped working. I used to use it to connect my laptop to the internet when a free wifi isnt available nearby. Anybody has any solutions??

    I have found no solution. If you can, please report your issue here Issue 39637 - android - Nexus 7 Bluetooth will not connect to my phone - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

    The more people the report it, the better.... I think.

    I have a Galaxy Nexus with 4.2 and WiFi tethering stopped working too. However, if you remove security and choose "open" when setting up the tethering, it'll connect. Not exactly safe, but it worked for me.

    FYI, Open Garden updated their app and it now it works for me. Crazy, I know, but it's working.

    Nexus 10 with Jelly Bean 4.2.1 no issue with Wi-Fi tethering. Check your hot spot/phone for restrictions like number of concurrent users or MAC address.

    I have the same problem HOWEVER; I have the Nexus 7 with 4.2.1 and an iPhone 4s. BOTH devices show they're connected to each other, but I can't surf anything on the Nexus. Any thoughts?
