Is there any way to tether to an Android tablet? I’ve rooted my phone and tried several different WiFi apps, but nothing seems to work. Has anyone figured out how to do this yet?

      I have precisely the same equipment (Xoom and Droid) and I've tried using PDANet to connect and doesn't work. I get the indication that the Xoom is connected and receiving internet but none of the internet apps on the Xoom connect. Just going directly from the Droid to the Xoom works? I'll have to try that! Thanks!

    i have the samsung epic and the Asus TF and i was using the pda-net tablet for a while but it would randomly shut off. it actually wasnt that bad for a beta program, but still a bit slow and annoying. after my second update to my transformer i now just use wireless teather for root users and it picks it up just fine, even my 4G

      Mmaskarinec,

      the above question is a week old and has long left the Answers front page. Moreover, your hardware is different. In other words, you are unlikely to receive a reply in this comment thread. You will increase your chances to find a solution by asking a new question.

    I figured it out. Thanks. I had to root my Samsung Fascinate and then I got the latest version of wifi tether and I had to change a few settings so it wasn't doing that ad-hoc stuff. It works great. The only trouble I have is that my phone will randomly shut off and reboot and if the wifi tether won't connect I have to reboot my phone and then it will work. I can live with that :)

      I have the same phone so could you please elaborate? Do you have "USB tethering" or "Sprint Hotspot" checked in the Wireless settings?

      Thanks!

        In the settings for WiFi Tether set device profile to Samsung Fascinate; set the set-up method to softtap for Samsung and change the channel to 6. You will need to reboot your phone after you chsne tne settings. Hope tnst helps! Sorry it took so long to reply. I don't check this post everydsy. Good luck!

    From Googling (I was curious if I could tether via Bluetooth from a dumbphone, which I guess you can't either..) I found out that most (if not all) android tablets don't support ad-hoc wifi networks, which is what your phone uses when you make a hotspot. If you have an android phone, I think you can use an app called PDANet to tether but I haven't really looked into it much.

      If you have an android phone and are trying to tether to an android tablet then PDANet has a beta version. I find that connecting is hit and miss for me. Also, easy tether does not currently work from phone to tablet. I have an HTC Droid Incredible and a Toshiba Thrive tablet. So far I have not found any software or apps that will allow me to use my phone as a bluetooth tethering or USB tethering unit for my tablet.
