    In order to share the internet of a webOS device with a non-webOS device over bluetooth, the non-webOS device must be capable of initiating a BNEP/PAN connection. It does not work the other way around as there is no option in webOS to do this. webOS can only accept an incoming connection.

    Is there any trick to getting freeTether to connect to my Windows 7 laptop via Bluetooth? Windows says it can't pair without a key
    VZW Pre 2 on 2.1

    Thanks webOS Internals!

    Can I just bump my own question. I still cannot get my android device to connect via freetether wifi. The android device just sits there "Obtaining IP address" but it never does.

    Anyone else seen this problem and solved it?

    Maybe the Android boards would be more helpful??

    I think it was a problem with Android 2.2 (Froyo)

    I now have a 3.0 device (Honeycomb), it it works beautifully!

    He's trying to tether over bluetooth... but use his pre to grab wifi.

    [Home wifi router]=> Pre =BT=> Treo 680.

    If tethering BT or USB, it just uses the webOS devices data connection whether that be WiFi or 3G?

    I don't suppose the webOS device can be on a WiFi connection and also tether WiFi to others... can it?

    Here's my experience. Win7. Pre minus Sprint.

    Uninstalled MyTether. Used Internalz to make certain it was a clean uninstall.
    Installed FreeTether. Connects fine over wifi, but speeds are slow. The best I can get is .26 down, .04 up.

    Uninstalled/reinstalled network drivers. Uninstalled/reinstalled FreeTether. Tested with both WPA2 and open. Tested with firewall on and off. Speeds remain very slow.

    MyTether was delivering speeds in excess of 1.2 down and .40 up. Any ideas what adjustments I could try? Appreciate the developers efforts here and would like to help this work better.

    Well if I remember correctly didnt myTether ship an older version of the kernel module? It might be that the wifi chip is in some power save / efficiency mode. I could look into adding some options to tweak that.

    Thank you. I'm running Uberkernal 500/1000. If there's a way to "reset" the wifi chip (patch/program), I'd be happy to try it.

    update. I changed the IP address/dhcp start address to 192.xxx.xx.xx from the program default 10.xx.xx.xx. Sppeeds now 1.2 down and .5 up. Connects flawlessly. Thank you.

    Or maybe there is an iptables rule that is throttling things.

    I'm also Pre Minus on Sprint, getting as much as 1.0 down.

    Bumping the speed up to 800Mhz fixed seems to give performance increases however while tethering the temperature gets too hot at 800Mhz for my comfort, so I just leave it at Uberkernel default of 500Mhz fixed.

    I have noticed that speed does vary a bunch on the Sprint network depending on location, time of day, seeming total randomness, etc.

    I believe this is part of the deal with Sprint and why they charge less compared to Verizon, so I live with it

    As someone said earlier, I'm sure that the problem lies with how the gtab implements wifi. I would love to get this working as installing and uninstalling MHS on a bell pre requires rooting with Linux. I'm getting better at it but would prefer the easier installation after doctoring.
    I will definately try future iterations of freetether as they become available.
    Long title, I know. But that's what happens. I have a gtab, and a palm pre minus on sprint. No problems connecting freetether to the computer, jumps right on. If i try the gtab, it just sits at obtaining IP address. If I allow the computer to connect through freetether, then allow the gtab to connect, it jumps right on as well. Didn't know if any of the network gurus here at WebOS Internals could shed any light. THanks!

    I have a request for the freeTether users out there. What I need is dumps of the iptable rules on different carriers. This info will be used to try and debug the speed some people seem to experience. If you access to novaterm please run the following command:

    iptables -L

    Copy the output of that command and paste it to dpaste and then post the resulting URL here. Thanks.
