Default [Q] trying to tether my Transformer to HTC hero

trying to share my HTC heros connection with my transformer but it isn't working. Neither bluetooth or wifi.
Running 2.1 by the way.

Another option is if someone gives me a guide to set up internet sharing from windows 7, which I cannot find for the life of me.

Google bridge connections on win 7. I'm not telling you how to do it. You have to do some of the work yourself :)

Your hero is rooted right? Mine tethers over Bluetooth fine using 'wireless tether for root users'.

Running rooted 2.3.3 on the hero, the updated transformer cant see airshare adhoc network. Wirelessteather also failed in the same way.

Wirelessteather does work with bluetooth.

can you tether your hero to your laptop? does your phone's wifi hotspot work? it is disabled from some carriers

Did you have any success in the end?

My Transformer's just arrived, and I'd like to tether to my rooted Hero, but can't figure it out.

If I choose WiFi mode, the Transformer can't see the Hero in the list of WiFi networks.

If I choose Bluetooth mode, I can pair the devices, but then what? How to I create the network connection? In Settings -> Wireless & networks -> Tethering & portable hotspot I turned on Bluetooth tethering, but it's not clear to me if that's to allow the Transformer to be the hotspot (i.e. server instead of client).

(Running VillainROM v13 on my Hero)

This has been a problem for many of us....it has been discussed in a few other threads also. Honeycomb (by default) won't connect to adhoc wifi networks.

I will donate to anyone who can create a hassle-free turnkey solution for this. Many of us have Android phones that are rooted, so a solution would benefit many. And I am using a Tilt 2, whose Android ROMs do not support BT. So this tethering solution needs to support wifi.
