I've rooted my Droid Incredible and installed both the "Wireless Tether" and "Barnacle Wifi Tether" apps but I can't seem to get internet connectivity on any other devices. I can see the connection on my laptop and on my iPad and my devices get ip addresses assigned to them but I can't connect to the internet. Google Chrome reports "Name unresolved" while Safari on the iPad only states that the device isn't connected to the internet. Why isn't this working?

Are "Wireless Tether" and "Barnacle Wifi Tether" designed for the Incredible? – Matthew Read Dec 27 '10 at 3:45
@Matthew Read They weren't specifically designed for it, as far as I know. Wireless Tether was given as an answer to this question… so I'm assuming (bad practice, I know) that it should be working. – Wesley Wiser Dec 27 '10 at 4:29

Did you download Wireless Tether from the Market or from ?

If you are running Android 2.1 you need to take the extra steps listed here:

If you are running 2.2 then in theory it should just work.

I would first try the latest release candidate here:

Let me know how it works out.
