Hi all - I have an Acer Android (Honeycomb) tablet and can't work out how (if?) to tether a HTC Touch 2 asn use it as a modem. The phone 'sees' the tablet and shows the Internet Sharing screen, but displays 'Check USB cable connection'. I've tried a few USB cables and get the same result every time. I'm assuming I need an app on the tablet?


Thanks for the help! Gary

Found the answer - set up phone as Wifi router.

Maybe not - I can create the local hotspot on the HTC Touch2 but the Honeycomb tablet doesn't see it. Any ideas?
