Ok. I finally got the root complete and flashed a Rom. (3.26.651.6--froyo deodexed rve.2) Everything is working fine. I downloaded wireless tether app and run it fine. My problem is the speed. My upload is .1 kb and download is .4 kb. I'm not in a 4g area unfortunately. I can't even connect a device to it. Is there something I'm possibly doing wrong? Why such slow speeds?

I dont get it...
I am currently running Fresh 18.104.22.168 and using wireless tether... I have superuser permission for wireless tether.
I get no errors, I just can't get internet.
It shows up on my PC as a connection, when i connect it doesn't give me internet access...

To the first point. The reason it wont work on a lot of custom ROMs off the bat is because the Dev doesn't include the bin file, typically because they don't know any better not because they are being mean. DEV's who are responsible ::cough cough AC-ROM cough cough:: have done this before hand for peeps. Another way this can be fixed is i believe in the newer versions of wireless tether there's an option in the menu's somewhere re install config and binary files (menu > settings > menu > install binary and config)
To the second point, I don't believe the one found in the market is pre 7, pre 8 or pre 9 which are the compatible ones with the froyo HTC kernel. The one is the market is the theory of evolution series but it doesn't state which build it is. By going to harald and team's google code page you have an opportunity to pick which version you want and see the bug list and status updates. It also has a section where you tell it which device you're on and it recommends which version of wireless tether you should be using (many version and not all work on all devices) hence why it's important tog o and pick the recommended apk for your device
Edit - So i just decided to check which version was in the market just for S's and G's and they strip out the version in the about section and rename the apk so you cant tell?!?!?! Luckly from chatting with Harald i know that pre 8 was the version which introduced channel changing with the HTC froyo kernel and i just changed to channel 11 and it actually stuck so im thinking it must at least be pre 8. Also judging from all the comments in the market of "your update broke my tethering" im guess it's pre 9 and maybe there's an issue with pre 9?

I usually try to research as much as I can before asking a question. Prior to visiting the first post, I *did* go to the developer's page that is listed in the "About" section of their app (). I did search for the recommended app for my phone, but for the Evo, it lists "Android 2.1 (Eclair)" as the version and the status as "Experimental." Based on that, I assumed that the steps I posted about might be necessary to address issues w/a Froyo updated phone since there wasn't a reference to a Froyo-based Evo download on the dev's site.
I had run across the config (menu > settings > menu > install binary and config) setting and tried it, but I rec'd an error message, so that was shot. I had already uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and that didn't work. I came here looking for answers, searched this thread, and got the direction I needed, so I'm glad you posted it *lol*.

Wireless tether is working properly but at time my laptop is losing connectivity and i would have to stop tether and start tether again in order for it to connect. Seen to be an issue with the app. I'm running 2.2 rooted w/ baked snack with updated radio & wimax.
any ideas any one?

Wireless tether is not working gives me error "Connectivity error" and when I seek further info it says invalid IP address. I don't use WT a lot but when I need it I really need it. It used to work under stock ROM, I am running Baked Snack now. I have also had problems with Cyan

Can someone help me on this. I finally rooted to get tether and downloaded the 2.02 wireless tether app from the market and followed all steps to get it working. My computer shows that it is connected to "android tether" but I can't get the internet on the computer to work. Everything seems to be working fine but it isn't. I don't have any Roms installed as all I did was root the phone using unrevoked and went straight for the tethering. Can anyone help?

problems with wireless tethering
I just rooted my evo using unrevoked 3.21 for android 2.2. I am trying to use the wireless tether function but keep receiving the error 67 data call failure even though my phone is rooted. On my laptop I am able to connect to the evo hotspot network but am told there is no internet access. Was wondering if anyone ran into the same problem or if anyone had any fixes. Thanks.
This thread is regarding an app other than sprints wifi hotspot app that only root users can use. Please see post #1.
