Your wifi will actually be on when this service is running, but in ad hoc mode as opposed to the normal mode, so you will not see the wifi symbol, you may notice your battery drain faster.

Really Slow

Installed on Sprint EVO and the connection is painfully slow via laptop wifi. If i use a USB tether application with the same phone it is fast. Any suggestions?

I emailed dev, he didn't reply

So I am wondering the same thing, and when i emailed the developer, he didn't respond. Who knows if he is even maintaining this app anymore.

Android 2.0/2.1 plans?

Anybody know if this works with any of the Android 2.1 flavors? I'm running CyanogenMod 5.07 (test5) and it doesn't seem to work anymore. It ran fine with the 4.x versions of CyanogenMod but they used Android 1.6 as the base OS.

It can be a little

It can be a little complicated to get set up the first time. Visit the website at http://www.androidactivity.com/ for more info and contact me, the developer, with any issues, questions, or problems.

I've been trying for an hr or more and I can't get this thing to work. I'm on vista 64bit. what am I doing wrong?

Reviews of tetherWifi


I bought this application for my LG-GT540 (android 1.6) but it does not work. I do not see the SSID from my laptop or any other interface (iPhone, or another laptop and phone).

So I tried Barnacle Tether Wifi (free) no problem, I can see the SSID from my laptop and I connect with no worries

So I bought for $ 8.95, a app which not working. Me which had think have less worry with to purchasing of this app.

I am disappointed but i can not go back but I won't let that happen to me again.

If you have a solution to solve my problem I'm still taker.
