Have not tried PDAnet, but I did get Wifi tethering working with no problem. Ran on my phone, Nook Tablet picked it up and ran flawlessly.

I used Android Wifi Tether (google it, will be first search term) on google code. Its free, so you can't go wrong. I am using a Droid 2 rooted with stock rom, if that makes any difference.

Default PDA_Net

Using version 3.25 that I installed from PC to Samsung Fascinate(Verizon). Foxfi sets up WiFi hotspot on phone. Data speed is good and poor at times, more to do with Verizon than app. Only problem I have is my phone wants to setup hotspot account with carrier(everytime), fix by reboot. Power hungry on phone side. Will have to try this newer version.

first ever post

What's interesting is that PdaNet just released version 3.5 for the phone that has a new WiFi connection method. I thought I might be able to use the 3.5 version on the phone side and this new tablet version on the Nook side.

It looks like the version 3.5 phone side creates an ad-hoc hotspot which the Nook Tablet can't see.

I run cm7 on my phone as well as my NT. I tether the NT on a daily basis from the phone using portable hotspot.
If I have helped you or if you like my work, Donations are always appreciated!

You also need Foxfi app on phone. Once you setup foxfi you will see that network on Nook tablet wifi settings. Not sure what PDAnet tablet will do for you, Nook tablet already has wifi.

New 3.50 version didn't work well on my Fascinate phone, went back to 3.25

I'm trying to get this to work with my D2 as well but the connection will immediately disconnect as quickly it connects.

For Device Profile are you using, Auto, Generic, Droid 2 or something else?

Thanks,
Nikkie

Default A200 ICS and EVO 4G Honeycomb (rooted)

Thanks to all who donate so much time making these wonderful tools.

Here's how I got my own Acer A200 Iconia tablet running ICS to connect through my EVO 4G (Sprint) running honeycomb (2.3.5) on 4/20/2012.

Your mileage may vary. If it doesn't work for you, don't email me, I"m no expert.

Root the EVO (HTC UNLOCK / AMON Ra / SuperUser etc ... )
No need to root the tablet

Install FoxFi on the EVO (I'm using version 1.80.5)
Download and install PDANET to your desktop machine
(I'm using 3.5 x64 for windows 7)
Set the EVO to debug mode and connect to your EVO to your desktop computer Start PDANET on the Windows computer (PdaNet pushes itself to the EVO. This little fact seemed to be missing from everything I read about it)

Disconnect the EVO from the computer.

Using your tablet wifi connection, go to the store,
download and install PDANET TABLET onto your A200 (I'm using version 2.20)

Pair your tablet to your EVO over BlueTooth
Start PDAnet on your EVO. It will start FoxFi. Turn on BlueTooth

From your EVO home page select menu/Wireless and networks/Bluetooth settings
Enable Discoverable

Disable Wifi on your tablet.
Enable Bluetooth on your tablet.

Start PdaNet on your tablet
connect to your EVO
Surf the web.

Hope this works for all of you.
