I thought I read on here that the EVO's hotspot feature was using wireless N. My notebook along with my son's notebook are both rated for N and have used N before, but with my EVO it is only working as a G. Is there a setting or do I have to be in 4G to get the N to work?

At the speeds we're working with even G is fine. N is really only necessary if you're transferring large files over a network or streaming HD content. For the hotspot feature (even in 4G) 802.11G is just fine. The other advantage of N is range but I imagine your EVO isn't that far away from any of the laptops.

No, completely wrong, usguyver. No relationship between the two at all. The evo does support 11n, but only at 2. 4 GHz. If your router operates at 5GHz the evo won't see it.

PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.

Ya i'm a bit confused myself with where this thread is at lol... I THINK the OP was asking if the Evo can tether through N. The answer is no. Just tried it. My laptop shows Radio type: 802.11g

i believe you are correct.
However, this 'N' capability is only available through some hex editing.
see the source link below to read the android central article regarding the N capability.

Biggest pet peeve of mine: I did the freaking reading or I wouldn't be talking! I don't like when people tell me to do more reading. I've owned an EVO before and looked this up way back in early July. Please, correct me only if you're dead certain and don't do it in the form of "Uh, read again" or whatever.
Anyways, it does have wireless N support, but I have no idea if there is through tethering (haven't done THAT much on the Evo).
