First, sorry if this has already been asked. And yes, I did search and didn't find an answer.

So, is there a way to use MyWi and tether to the Xoom? I've found other places on the net with directions but can't get it to work. Has anyone been successful?

I don't have a Xoom to test with but there is no reason that the Wifi tethering option should not work.

The only reason would be if the xoom refused to connect to adhoc wireless.

Edit

From a quick google search, it looks like this might be the case and you won't be able to use MyWi to tether. All the more reason to use tetherme

At the iPhone hacks section.
Pretty much what Ulbador said above.
Many devices like the PS3, Xbox and others wont connect to a wifi adhoc network and they need a true hotspot instead.
After 4.3 is out and JB you will have more options such as MyWi, TetherMe and probably many commcenter patches to allow native tethering.

Android devices are all over the place in terms of their support for ad hoc connections. Some support it and some require major kernel hacks to do it.

But at least it's open, right? :p


It's quite convenient that all idevices support it.
