1). restart your pre3 no matter what your doing , exit any open cards and restart. I'm anal so I do a battery pull restart after shutting down. Mayor may not be required to make this process work.

(again, I do a full power off restart and battery pull, but I can be anal. Not sure if its necessary to pull batt).
3). after restarting, when you go into freetether and see wifi tethering is not turned on, then you can change the SSID I use webOSnet as my ssid.
make sure to enable security with wpa2 and use a very simple password:
1234567890 is one example of an easy simple pw. Not very secure, but right now we dont care - we just want to get your tethering to work
4). Check tcpip settings before enabling wifi tethering. It should work fine using either of the devices default subnet ranges - the 192.xxx.xxx.xxx or the 10.xxx.xxx.xxx subnets
5). now enable wifi tethering.
