    Did you authrorize your iPad on your Droid? I believe when you attempt to connect to the phone, it should have a screen that asks you to verify the device that's trying to connect to it. That's how I have mine set up anyway.

    No I haven't got that message before. I turn on my hotspot, set up the passphrase and I also turn on the option for enabling access control. Then when I turn on my wifi on the iPad, it finds my Android phone, I click to connect to it, enter the passphrase I set up, and then my phone asks me to okay the device that's trying to access it. Then everything works just fine.

    ok thanks a bunch.....finally got it with wireless tether app, i had to disable (uncheck) enable access-control in the settings in wireless tether app,i noticed it was saying the tether app started up with a error, so i looked in the log in the app and it said access control failed, so thats how i knew where to go look, im also finding out it wont connect for me when i have the network lock on it, but no biggie!

    thanks for all the help
