Ad-hoc does not fix the problem. The tablet just doesn't connect to my phone that way. I cannot change the file due to still being stock with no root permissions. I have been reluctant to root until I get a better feel for the device, I'm past my initial 30 days, or some xda genius works out a way to unroot and relock the bootloader. I'm just not ready to throw away my warranty. If only this beast was as easy to manage as my phone!

I never understand this confusion. Root has absolutely nothing to do with the bootloader. You can root and unroot to your heart's content and keep your warranty; just don't unlock the bootloader. Think of root just as administrator privileges like in Windows, it's just a state of being for the user (state of permissions really). The bootloader is like the BIOS/UEFI of a Windows PC, it's locked so that they can say it's your fault if you unlock it and mess something software-related completely up.
And I would have thought since they re-introduced ad-hoc into the Prime's stock software that the rest of the Eee Pad line would also keep this functionality. You're on the latest update?
