    Hey guys,
    I know there are a few threads similar to this that I have been looking through, but none of them have solved my issue.
    I got my iPad 32 wifi last night and am having trouble tethering it with my Droid (running 2.2.1 & rooted).
    I've tried using Wireless Tether and Barnacle.
    I heard that Wireless Tether won't work with the default ROM. But it says on the Barnacle site that it will work with the default ROM.
    My iPad finds the network fine, but when I go in a browser or something, it says its not connected to the internet.

    Any advice or something I can try?
    It's kinda bumming me out because I didn't get the 3G one specifically so I could tether.

    Thanks.

    Not too familiar with rooting but mine is running cyanogen and works great with wireless tether from the get go.

    I know this is off topic, but could you direct me to a tutorial to get Cyanogen installed? Rooting was no problem, but I'm not familiar with installing ROMs.

    This is my problem exactly! I, too, have wireless tether and barnacle and both will show on the iPad but neither will connect me to the Internet. I.m going to try to find cyanogen. If you have success, please post it and so will I.

    Incorrect. Very incorrect.

    But I'm installing Cyanogenmod as we speak, so I'll report back with my results, (hopefully).

    I have droid x and using wireless tether to my iPad wifi......I could connect when I locked the android tether but when I don't lock it I can connect fine....in your super user icon click it and make sure wireless tether app has green light beside it, open wireless tether app too and turn off enable access control

    I have found with my Droid 1 running UD that the kernals are the key. Try a few different kernals and see if that helps.

    Well after finally getting Cyanogenmod up and running properly, the tethering seems to be working. It wouldn't work with Barnacle for some reason, but Wireless Tether seems to be working for the most part.

    Thanks for the replies
