    But what kind of WiFi does the Galaxy Ace create using tethering? I mean, is it adhoc or infrastructure WiFi? I would like to use this solution to share my 3G Internet connection to my tablet, but the latter only sees infrastructure mode WiFi (not adhoc).
    Hope you can verify that and let me know.

  3. Thank you so much!
