    Default Nexus S Wifi Hotspot Not Working

    For some reason I can't get this to work. Whenever i try to use the hotspot feature on my Nexus S, it fails. I am able to turn the feature on and set up a password and all but then when i try to connect my tablet or ipod or anything to it, it says connected. So then on my connected device, i go into the browser or some other internet-needed application but it says not connected to the internet. I don't get it. In my status bar it shows wifi is clearly connected. Please help.

    I am also having the same issue. I'm on Version 2.3.6 Build# GRK39F. Can someone please help. I thought this build # was the corrected build number that fixed the tethering issue with the initial roll out of 2.3.6 to the I9020A.

    FYI - This seems to still be the case with the factory image Android 4.1.1 (JRO03E)

    My home wifi turns itself on and off at random since Jelly Bean. I have to go into settings, turn wifi off, let it load 3G, then turn on the wifi again. Painful.
