    This might be useful for those of you with HP Touchpads. Ever since I rooted (stock ROM with root), I have been trying to use a wifi tethering app to share my GS2 data connection with my Touchpad. I knew it would be a challenge since the TP doesnt support ad-hoc wifi connections. I tried many combinations of options in the Wifi Tether and Open Garden apps. I came across a suggested setup in a general TP forum on XDA. xda-developers - View Single Post - [webOS] $50 Bounty for Adhoc support
    Here is the basic post with a few of my own notes thrown in.

    You need to use the beta of the Wifi Tether app wifi_tether_v3_1-beta6.apk You can find that file here Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting
    Install it
    Run it
    Menu>Settings>
    Change Device-Profile, select Samsung Galaxy S
    Change Setup-Method, select NetD (Master)
    Go back to the main screen
    Click start tethering. You may get some errors reported in Wifi Tether.

    This worked great for me. You can run it with encryption on or off. I did a little searching on Netd (master) and it seems as though this is different from ad-hoc (is it infrastructure mode?) Whatever it is, it tethers with the Touchpad well.

    Works great! This is the only thing that worked for my Nexus S 4G to tether to my Touchpad. Thanks!

    Is this on WebOS or CM7? Thinking of getting the S2 so this would be ideal!

    You're awesome. The whole reason I bought a touchpad was to tether it to my phone and never could. THANKS!

    I don't get it is tethering different then wifi hotspot? I had a droid inc. and I would use the wifi hotspot for my tp all summer long, with no problems. Does the gs2 have wifi hotspot and can you do it for free like I could with my dinc?

    Tethering is free .....sshhhh. Verizon charges $35.00 a month for the hotspot. I can tether for free. It uses my unlimited data plan. Looks like you're surfing just with your phone not a laptop or tablet.

    my motorola xoom also will not support adhoc connection so i could never get my GS2 to tether to it. now that's i'm running UnNamed ROM 2.2.1 with wifi tethering built in, it works great with my xoom.

    All you need to do is root and remove TetheringManager2.apk from the GS2 - then it provides a full-blown AP. I have no idea why people insist on using broken third-party utilities that only provide adhoc mode when native tethering works great.
