Wifi tether does nothing. It just sits there. I checked several times and I indeed have root access.

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

This worked for me too, tethered my laptop and touchpad through it. Many thanks!

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

Rooted new evo lte so could get wifi tether. No problem on old evo 4g. No client lists show up. which download should I use? Tried several, but none work. How to get client to show?

Make sure you are using Wifi Tether not Wireless Tether. Go into settings and change the device-profile to generic ICS.

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

Rooting the EVO 4G LTE is super easy, but WiFi Tethering still isn't working for me. I have uninstalled/reinstalled WiFi Tether, un-rooted/re-rooted my device, selected several different device profiles, tried with and without access control and encryption, changed the passphrase, enabled and disabled MSS clamping and Routing fix, (Re)-installed binaries/configs, rebooted the phone and the laptop, and even put the phone into and out of airplane mode. Are there any other tricks I can try?

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

I am new to Android. Just left my Palm Pre homebrewed to max, and want to learn how to do the same with my new EVO 4G LTE. Especially wiFi Tethering to run my Touchpad. How do I do this please?

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

* Change Device-Profile > Generic ICS

* Make sure Routing fix is enabled

* Select Enable WiFi-Encryption if you want to use WPA/WPA2-PSK (and don?t forget to change the default password!)

**** some people have been having trouble if they don?t enable MSS clamping in the settings ***

Are your Touchpad and Laptop seeing the AnndroidTether connection?

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

I finally got it working. I did a factory data reset, rooted, installed wifi tether, and set the profile to Generic ICS. BINGO, everything works! It must've been an app I had installed that was hosing me up.

Re: Wifi tether not working (im rooted)

I have tried everything there is to try on my Samsung Galaxy 3 to hook up to the tether.. I have did everything you all have said and I still not get the tether to work. The phone is rooted I am ready to go back to the EVO because I know it works. I even signed up with the hot spot for sprint for 49.00 a month and that data lasted about a week and I was getting ready to go over so I canceled it.. Please someone help me with this problem !!!!!! :)
