    I'm rather stupid when it comes to this stuff, but I have been told that tablets will not recognize my phone as a modem because the phone (Rooted Droid) is ad-hoc and not infrastructure mode.
    I don't care to root my Coby, I just want it to recognize my phone as an access point so I can use it to get on the Internet.
    Any Help??

    There's already a thread on how to make adhoc connection using 7024, just search for it.

    The beta version of Wifi Tether supports infrastructure networking. <netd-master mode> is what I'm using with no problems. If your phone is rooted, give it a shot and see if your phone is supported. The generic model works for me.

    Either install a tethering application on your phone that provides an infrastructure-type network (as opposed to ad-hoc) as already suggested or intall a Gingerbread CFW with custom support to ad-hoc on your tablet.
