    It should work but the phone is supposed to do it without an app now. Read the user guide for instructions. I haven't tried yet as I'll probably root and use WT.

    I was actually going to start a Wi-Fi thread. Myself and a few others cannot seem to get tethering to work after rooting. The rooting went well as far as I cold tell and other apps that require rooting seem to work fine.

    The Evo is sending the signal out and is seen. I just cannot connect to it. My iPad, which is very good at auto-connecting, just tells me connection failed. My laptop and CM7-Nook Color just do not connect at all. I have tried with and without encryption and have tried two different programs. I even restored Wireless tether from a TB backup so all access settings were the same as on my old Evo which worked fine.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks, that fixed my problem! I was having the same problem as the guy above.

    So now, my settings in Wifi Tether are:
    Device Profile: Generic ICS
    Setup Method: Auto
    WiFi Encryption: Enabled
    Channel: 1
    WiFi driver reload: Enabled
    Routing fix: Enabled

    EDIT: This post was made using a wifi tether connection from my EVOLTE.

    For wireless tether I changed the profile to Samsung galaxy cdma/LTE and its works. Also enable mms and router fix

    Although wifi tethering works fine, I can't seem to tether via bluetooth; I've tried using BlueDun, FoxFi, and even the built-in Bluetooth tethering option (settings>wireless & netowrks>more>Sprint hotspot & tethering>Bluetooth tethering) and nothing seems to work. I really need to tether via bt as my vehicles' infotainment system relies on BT DUN profile for wireless connectivity (no wifi). Has anyone been successful in tethering via bt, & if so, how?
