This topic is about connecting your X10 to PC Desktop/Laptop using Wireless (Hotspot) access. As we all know, sometimes making this happen is a b;tch. So I thought to write an easy guide for making hotspot. Barnacle used to be the best, cant get it to work anymore. Not sure what builds android-tether is good for. Feel free to share your expertise. I do know that this works 100% with TripNRaVeR's newest builds as long as your using the 2.6.29-00054-g5f01537 SEMC kernel, maybe other kernels work, please share if so.

1. Install a version of android-wifi-tether , I use wireless_tether_2_0_7.apk
2. After you press start tethering you might get a message about device not rooted. To fix this, reboot to recovery and select Advanced options, Fix permissions. Reboot.
3. Connect PC to AndroidTether. Change SSID and password if desired.
4. If still cant get it, be patient your PC will connect eventually ;)

Share ideas, if there is an easier way besides stock of course, good luck!!

Hi there, thanks for sharing this info. It works quite good and easy but I have the same problem I even had with Barnacle and I don't know if this is me or anybody else.
I play online games (World of Warcraft mainly) and by wifi teather I can connect and chat with my guild buddies but after a minute or so I cannot interact with environment anymore, basically just chat.
It is the strangest thing that has happened so I continued to use USB Tether for this porpose, which I cannot get to work on newest TripNMiui releases (10x.235.B71) so I use 1.5.2 GB.

Thank you again for your tip, read you later.

@Shizumaru
my guess would be IP adresses are used and a carrier IP might not be allowed. I never use MMORPG's. Might even be a TCP issue, but since your usb tether works differently, may be fixed by changing adapter settings.

Good instructions

The best and easiest I have used is "Easy Tether".
Install on both phone and PC, then its a simple as right click on tray icon and activate.
