    ok update on what i have found maybe some buddy will know something else. Android phones and tablets wont connect to an ad hoc network (which is the network your phone makes if you using wireless tethering apps) they dont even recognize the ad hoc networks. but i did find an app called wifi buddy beta (found in the market) that will recognize ad hoc networks (which is a step in the right derection) but it still cant connect i have emailed the developer to see if he is planning on adding that into the app but we will see. i havent tried the native froyo wifi hot spot app sense i havent found a rom that has that working yet. but if any one has any pointers that would be great thanks.

    You hit the nail on the head:
    *Android phones serve up their Wifi Hotspot as an Ad Hoc network
    *Android tablets can't natively connect to Ad Hoc networks...

    Note: there has been discussion that it may be possible to hack your android device to connect to Ad Hoc networks, but I haven't seen any proof of it on the Android Tablets that are currently out.

    I hope someone can figure this out so either connect to ad-hoc or (preferrably) allow tether as a regular wifi point.

    just tried out the 2.0.5pre1 on my Droid and still got nothing when trying to tether. I assume it's still showing as ad-hoc. Will try and make sure the laptop can still see it tomorrow.

    yes i tried the latest update for wireless tether and its still ad hoc for our droids but i did read that the new froyo 2.2 native wifi hotspot will be an actual wireless network so i have been trying to find a 2.2 rom that has a working wifi hot spot but from all the ones i have tried i cant find one that works and most dont even have the option for the hotspot. so keep your fingers crossed that the cyanogenmod 6.0 will have it working. and i hope it comes out soon

    update time i just tried cyanogenmod 6.0 alpha 3 and no go on the wifi hotspot. so the hunt is still on to figure out a way to use your android phone for wifi for your tablet.

    There have been a lot of requests on the 'other forum' to some of the ROM developers to add in Ad Hoc support for the aPad firmware. I'm hoping the request doesn't fall on deaf ears as this would be really nice for people who have mobile phones with Wifi Hotspot support.
