    I'm interested in buying a new ipad and want to the know the following question...

    *** Is it possible to "Tether" the internet connection from my Droid-X to the Ipad?:confused:

    If so: Please explain in simple terminology, because this is all new to me. I have used PDA.NET to tether my MAC to my Droid, which was quite simple.

    Thanks, everyone!!!

    Yes, your iPad will connect in the same way your PC does. I use my iPhone to do the same way... Works like a charm!

    Someone else that knows more step by step on a droid can chime in here...:D but you will basically use an app that broadcast a wireless network and your iPad will connect to it. (not sure if the droid has to be rooted or not?)

    Yes...PLEASE chime in! I've done everything I know how and I still can't get Internet access on my iPad. I rooted my DroidX, downloaded and installed both Wireless Tether and Barnacle. Although both show up on the ipad as working , so far I've had no success actually connecting. ANY SUGGESTIONS?:confused:

    Mossi,

    I'm a Droid 1 guy so this may work different for the X, but I had the same issue. It turns out that certain kernals work better than others with wireless tether. I had to try a few before I got one to work with my Ipad but now its slicker than snot. Try a few different kernals and see if that helps.

    BTW, I'm running UD 2.5 on my Droid with a Slayher kernal.

    Hope this helps,

    John

    Could you explain the concept of a kernel to me? What are they and where do you get them? And. What is UD 2.5? People talk about changing ROMs. What are THEY, and where you acquire them?

    Bigb0ss. Check out a forum called XDAdevelopers. This forum has just about every android device under the sun, how to root them, and almost any other topic you can think of.

    This was where i found all the info and troubleshooting when i was rooting and wirelessly tethering my Evo 4G. I just picked up the iPad last week and was wirelessly tethering my evo all weekend at my parents house. Worked like a charm!

    Since your on verizons network, just be careful. There is a limit (although you'd have to lookup what the limit is) to the amount of data that can be tethered per month without paying overages. This is why I went with the sprint evo because there is no limit!

    Best of luck to ya!
