Default [Q] Wifi Tether issues

I just moved and have yet to get my cable and net set up so I figured I'd fall back on good old Wifi Tether for Root, problem is it doesn't work

From what I can tell it doesn't seem to send out a signal for my laptop to connect to. Anyone know how to fix it?

I'm running stock 2.3.4, rooted but bootloader is locked cause I live in 4g

Never shoulda left Sammy, damn.

Ends you have to change some settings, device to galaxy s and type to Master. Works great for me
