    Dont judge me... I have an iPhone with a contract. I tether using pdanet on my laptop but the tp cannot see the hotspot. I've changed channels and power strength with no luck. I know tp has wifi issues so this may just be another one. Any ideas?

    pdanet only does adhoc and the tp won't connect to adhoc. If you jailbreak the phone and use mywi.....it works great and does infastructure mode

    I had the same issue with my HP Glisten phone (running Win Mobile). I tried numerous wifi programs, but they all provided ad-hoc wifi which is not currently supported by the TouchPad. I don't know that there is a jailbreak solution for WM, but I wouldn't have used it even if there were.

    First, I recommend that you request support for ad-hoc wifi through the Palm enhancements page. The more requests they get for a feature, the more likely it is to be included. Feedback & Feature Requests | Palm USA

    Second, I'll tell you my temporary solution. (I'm waiting for the Pre3 to be released before I replace my phone.) I bought one of these.
    Amazon.com: CradlePoint PHS300 Personal Hotspot - Wireless access point - 802.11b/g (Version 2.0/2.5.3): Electronics

    It's VERY easy to use and works with both my WM phone and my broadband USB stick. I typically use it with the stick so I don't have to deal with a cable from my phone to the CradelPoint device.

    My only complaint is the size. It's about the size of a typical external HD which is okay for me since I carry a purse. It might be a bit more problematic for guys if you were hoping to carry it in your pocket.

    The battery could last longer (about 3 hours of continuous use), but otherwise, it's great and definitely the cheapest solution I found to tide me over until I get my Pre3.
    Past: Treo 300 > 650 > 700w > 750
    Present: HP iPAQ Glisten (WM) + TouchPad
    Future: Pre3 + Veer + TouchPad

    Just waiting for webOS 3 on the phones. Please hurry, HP!

    Wait, you have an iPHONE? YUCK! I'm just kidding. Can't wait until HP finally makes a slab phone. They should call it the HP TouchPhone to continue the "touching" theme like the "Touch"Smart, "Touch"stone and "Touch"Pad. I would even make the "touch"pod if I were HP. Welcome to precentral and webOS land!
