Sorry off this had been asked already. mods please delete if it is. Can the tab connect to a rooted phone with wifi tether? This is a deal breaker for me if it can't connect.

there are some phones that dont create a real hot spot but an
"ad hoc"- hotspot. if your phone does this you cannot connect your tab to it.

also with my desire i wanst able to connect (or find) ad hoc - wifi's until there was a fix released and then it worked.

i am still waiting for all the developers to start working on this awesome device!
donations guaranteed

Are you using wireless tethering? Also, did you have to do any other special tweaking to set-up? Just curious because I am waiting for the WiFi only version and want to tether with my Fascinate when needed...

My EVO is rooted and running Myn's Warm ROM. I'm using wireless tether. Turn it on, my Tab connects and away I go.

"Conctify" is a freeware utility which can help you create a hot spot on you laptop (win7). Depending on hardware it allows to create an "ad-hoc" or true hot spot. Galaxy Tab doesn't support ad-hoc hot spot out of the box. I am also waiting for the fix. My laptop allowed creating only a ad-hoc hot spot, so I got this Asus U8B-N13 wifi N USB dongle. My tab is now connected to my laptop's hot spot with the help of this dongle and "Conctify".
